There are few tests in a relationship quite like interior design work with your spouse. One of us is the creative mind who can picture things in her head…and the other, well, can’t. Not to mention that trying to compromise on looks and feels, and what we both want in a space can be vastly different between the two of us.
Bless Modsy for coming to the rescue. Not only to help us design a blanks space entirely from scratch and make it a dream, but to save us from many fights and disagreements. HA! I am so pumped to be able to giveaway one Premium Design Package! If you have been want to give a lift to a space in your home, or to redesign it from scratch from the bottom up, this is your chance!!
See what we did in our living room, and how Modsy helped us go from a blank space to the living room of my (our 😉 ) dreams!
When we moved into the house a couple of years ago, the seafoam green room, with a maroon accent wall was just left empty. Ben and I didn’t know where to turn, I was pregnant and hormonal, and trying to talk about it wasn’t productive, since any time that I tried to paint a picture of my vision for the room, he said he couldn’t picture it. He needed to see it, actually see it. This lasted for months. Then we had a kid and it all got pushed to the back burner until this spring. And then, like a dream (I am not kidding.) I stumbled on to Modsy.
The process is simple, figure out how much help you need – is it just a few layouts, or do you need hand holding all the way from start to finish? – then, pick out your design package level. You can go from just a little help, or fully engaged design with one on one help from a premium interior designer who will talk with you on the phone! We went right down the middle with the premium package.
Modsy’s interface guided us through the whole process, giving us a style guide to fill out, so that our designer could understand our vision for the space. Our style is “Vintage Farmhouse”, no shocker there, huh? Next, we uploaded photos and some dimensions of the room – all so they could develop a 3D rendering and give us different layouts with fun mixtures of furniture and accents! Everything is designed to fit and balance the space, so you don’t need to worry about something being “too small” or “oversized” for the space. You can even ask to have your wall colors changed in your rendering if you will be repainting the room, for a small fee.
Our first time, we got three designs all with different layouts, and mixes and matches of furniture. They were all excellent, and I hardly had to do any rework, or substitutions. More than anything, it helped Ben and I both visualize what we wanted! Having Emmett meant that we wanted him to have a space, too. In the design we selected, Modsy found a corner for us to put a table and chair for Emmett, along with his teepee, and a sitting space for us to maximize the light from our big windows.
We haven’t finished the room entirely, as Ben was insistent on making the coffee table (so my food photo boards are stand ins, HA!), and Emmett’s activity table himself. But this helped us paint the picture of the room and feeling we wanted to create. We painted the seafoam green room into a neutral beige, called appropriately enough, “Accessible Beige”, that complimented all of the furniture and accents, and created a light and bright room we wanted.
And if all of this wasn’t enough, we hired Modsy again to tackle our entryway, and one other room in our house (which room that is is TBD)! It has really been a game changer for us. They shopped all of the best places for quality furniture, designed it for us, and with us being able to buy directly from our designs, it made the whole process stress free! And that is saying something. Our couch came from Pottery Barn, the arm chairs from Wayfair, and other accent items from CB2, and West Elm! Leave the guessing game, and weekends wasted at stores behind. I for one, will not go back! I’m sold!
Because of our overwhelming success with Modsy, I have partnered with them to giveaway a Premium Design package to one lucky winner! This is the package we selected with each of our designs, in our living, entry way, and other room (either our master or second living room). Each of our designers has been absolutely steller, helping us pick layouts we wouldn’t have thought of, and textures we would have been stumped by! They have been quick, responsive, and receptive to each of our choices and changes along the way. And I sincerely hope that you will love them, too!
