Virtual room design definitely takes the stress out of decorating updates. It’s something to consider when you desire a fresh look and not sure where to start! I receive so many cries for help and I sure do know that furniture layout and selection, choosing rugs and accessories can be so difficult. You may know what style you prefer but not how to put it together and our homes are often ever-evolving as times and tastes change.
It’s time for my own home to grow up a bit, as honestly I have not done much in some of the rooms for years! Raising children, working and caring for an elder was time consuming and I think that many of you are rushed as I’ve been. I don’t think that you should feel badly about changing things in your home or shifting style preferences. You do this with personal fashion, so why should your home be staid?
I am not a professional interior designer but I am a trained artist and feel that I have a good eye. I enjoy giving you the tips that I’ve learned as a design blogger and in years of helping others design their spaces when I can. There are times though that even I seek advice from either interior design friends or a service that I’d like to introduce you to today.
Meet MODSY, and I was compensated for this post, but the writing, enjoyment, and opinions are all my own. Here’s how the service works and how they assisted me with a practical plan to attack my master bedroom.
Before I explain the service, MODSY has offered a generous 20% DISCOUNT to my readers with the coupon code: FUFU20.
Modsy is a personalized home design solution that utilizes 3D visualization technology to let you try on furniture before you buy. Once you head over to the site you begin by taking photos of your space to assist in the virtual room design. You’ll be using your smartphone and don’t worry about your room being a mess or removing items, as they will do that for you virtually! With a few quick photos of your room, they build an accurate 3D model of your space.
You’ll simply need to give them your space measurements and a floor plan. I did a quick sketch of my floor plan and my photos had one wall covered in boxes of items that I’m storing. Real life! Next you fill out a questionnaire explaining your vision and how you’d like to utilize your space. They work within your budget and ask which design styles you are drawn to in order to get a better idea of your aesthetic.
I was truly amazed at the virtual room design of my bedroom and I’m thrilled to be able to use these to make the room grow up! With MODSY you can see exactly how their furnishings would look in your space and make a decision from there. If you like the designs and some of the pieces that they suggest, you can even buy items directly from their links. You can design and shop for your home, in one place, with products from hundreds of partners!
I was sent three virtual room design layouts for my master bedroom, incorporating styles that I love. I took photos from the angles that MODSY suggested with my phone and this is as you walk into the room through the doorway. The photos above are from the first layout of the room and the vibe is updated, clean and has a coastal vibe.
We designed our master bedroom as an addition to our home over twenty years ago and although styles have changed, the layout has not. I specifically wanted to place the bed in-between the two windows that you see virtually above. I asked MODSY to leave the floor plan as such, but that I needed more storage for linens. I’ve been considering which of the products I might purchase suggested in the floor plans and have already started making some changes!
This is the second of the design plans that I received and provides more storage options than plan one. Modsy helps you truly take the guesswork out of buying furniture and the dresser has been calling my name! The plans all reside in your own MODSY boards for you to access at any time. There is no reason why you can’t combine styles and although I prefer plan one I’ve already purchased a rug as in plan two!
In this view from the bed you can see the fireplace and the two sets of French doors that look out at the pool and garden. While most likely I won’t replace the antique mirror and French sconces that are currently over the fireplace mantel I do need new window treatments and love the suggestion of these silvery blackout drapes hung on gold hardware. A must do and now I know exactly where to find them! I know that you’re curious and I’m going to give you the link to the shoppable studio that MODSY created for me!
But the following design number three is possibly my very favorite, so let’s explore the option below.
This look really has the WOW factor and showcases modern femininity mixed with coastal and some glam. I think that my MODSY designer nailed it and I adore the grouping in front of the bed as a spot to sit and relax. While I won’t be able to do everything provided it gives me a base and a starting point to upscale as I can. I’m definitely planning on mixing in some of my own items and you can do that as well in your home.
The dresser in this rendering really suits my style. This is so well matched to what I discussed with my designer when asking for some changes that I already have the mirror shown in another room! I am able to go in to Modsy and ask for more suggestions and changes and if I’m working with clients I would most definitely use MODSY to give them designs that I curate with the service.
Now let me ask you…which of these virtual room design selections below do YOU prefer and why?
