The living room in this house is surprisingly big! For a 890 square foot house, this room feels palatial. Which, after moving without any furniture to this house in January, it felt empty.
After working on it a bit, I had one wall of the room looking super cute, but I was a little bit stumped with the rest of the space. Where should I put a desk? What seating could I do? Should I try another layout? How could I make it feel more cozy and pulled together?
This is the space our family actually spends a lot of time in. This is where my office is and I work during the day. We have a TV in here so we watch shows through the day (especially right now). At night, after my son goes to sleep, this is my sanctuary and where I unwind. Having it feel good is very important to me.
I want this room to be great because it’s also the first thing people see when they come into my home. So I decided to team up with Modsy to create a plan and then I’d work off of it. If you haven’t heard of Modsy, they are an online interior design service that create the most gorgeous life-like renderings of your room’s design that I have ever seen.
Here’s the space when I put out an SOS-
I submitted these pictures to Modsy– they ask for at least 9 so they can see each part of the room. I also gave them measurements of the space and my budget. For the interior design service, I went with the premium package for $159.
Their services are SUPER affordable for eDesign (starting at $89 for the basic package). Plus I have a special code for you!!! Use ATHOME for 20% off all packages (excluding the Luxe package).
After submitting my images and measurements, I took a style quiz so my designer could know my look and work off of it. I got Elegant Connoisseur.
I found that to be spot on! I especially love how it’s a combination of Classic Formal, Hollywood Glam, and Eclectic designs. I personally call my style “Modern Granny Chic goes to Florida,” but Elegant Connoisseur is more succinct ;).
After the style quiz, I also gave them a list of furniture I already own that I wanted to incorporate in the room. It costs $15 per piece so they can build it in 3D, but if you have a piece you want to see in the room, I do think it’s worth it.
I asked my Modsy designer (thank you Brittany!) to combine my favorite parts of two designs and then I had a solid direction to go! I made a list of what I liked from the designs.
Here’s the ideas I loved- the basket under the end table, the bench in the window, the palm tree in the basket by the front door, the pink wall, the desk placement, and the small chair by the record player.
Another really cool thing about Modsy is that they make it really easy to shop your design! Above, you can see all of the white dots indicate shop-able items! You can have exactly what you see in your rendering. Plus, if what you want comes from a bunch of different companies, you can just buy them all through Modsy’s shop and they’ll take care of the rest.

You can see the basket under the end table that I added as well as a bench in the window.
My favorite addition over here is the palm tree by the entry. I was originally going to do a chest here, but after not finding something I love, I thought this was a great, affordable option. Maybe one day I’ll do a table here (if I find something perfect). Until then, I love this
angled view seating
Over my record player, we recently got a TV so it’s on there. It was a gift from a friend and we so appreciate it! Especially since we’re home pretty much all the time now. I’m planning on building a frame for it and making it blend in more, but it’s so great to have a TV that I can’t complain about the look of it.
after- record player and desk
The biggest difference in here after I worked with Modsy was I now have an office space! Which is pretty important because I always work from home. I painted the wall pink, hung my vintage scarf, and added a thrifted desk. I still want to find a better chair for in here, but baby steps, you know?
after record player wall
My husband and I recently hung more trelliage (the lattice wall treatment) onto this wall. I love it! I’m still figuring out the art, but this is major progress from where we were. The chair was another thrift store find. I repainted the base (it was dark brown) and upholstered the cushion in pink. I adore this chair now!!!
One thing I really like about the renderings is that they give you a great idea for how to accessorize a space! For me, this record player is tricky to know what accessories to put on here and they give you a great idea of what will work beautifully!
If you’d like to see a video of how the whole room came together, I share the whole process from an empty room to how we got here. I’m so excited to show you this! I can’t believe how far this space has come in a few months!
I wanted to say thank you to Modsy once more for helping me with the layout on this room! I would have never gotten it this far without them! The room feels divine and it works for our family. Having this room looking good and actually functioning for us, well, that’s a big deal especially right now.
