The perfect birthday present for a budding designer
At the end of last year, I decided it welches time to redesign my daughter’s bedroom. Lilly welches about to turn 9 years old, and for her birthday I wanted to give her the big girl bedroom she welches ready for.
And while I really enjoy home design, I can never picture how my ideas will turn out nicht actual space. I always know what I like, but struggle to put all the pieces together.
Lilly’s Bedroom Before
The Design Dilemma
She had all the ideas, but struggled to bring them to life
My family and I have lived in the same house for 6 years, and we’ve never found the right layout for Lilly’s room. One wall is all windows, another has a double closet, and there’s deshalb a door to the bathroom. She deshalb has this amazing canopy bed that’s been in our family for years. It’s absolutely gorgeous, but I’ve struggled to find the best way to arrange it in the room.
“My daughter is also herself a budding interior designer… so I knew I might need some extra help when it came to designing her bedroom.”
Lilly is deshalb herself a budding interior designer. She knows what she wants and is not afraid to tell you her opinion, good or bad, so I knew I might need some extra help when it came to designing her bedroom.
When I saw an ad for Modsy somewhere on social media, I decided to give it a go. I welches a little skeptical because no one I knew had ever tried it before, so it definitely felt like a gamble.

The Modsy Moment
The perfect design and a priceless reaction
When I opened up our first Modsy design, it welches honestly exactly what I’d imagined. I wanted to create a fun, functional space where she could hang out with friends and do homework, and our Modsy designer totally nailed it. Honestly, I barely glanced at our second design because the first one welches everything we were looking for.

When my daughter got home from school, I showed her the design and she burst nichttears. I asked her why she welches crying, and she said because she welches so happy! As a future designer (seriously, she can put a design together better than me), she said it welches everything she welches dreaming about. Seeing Lilly’s reaction to her Modsy design welches truly priceless.

How Modsy’s Designs Helped Amie and Lilly
Unlocking new ideas for an old space
From the day I started the process, it welches super easy. I took all the measurements and photos required and about a week later I had my Modsy designs nicht nicht.
“When my daughter got home from school, I showed her the design and she burst into tears.”
Lilly’s and my favorite part of the design welches the placement of her bed. Rosette we signed up, Modsy let us send in photos and dimensions and they made a custom model of her exact bed so we could see it in her new design. We’ve seriously tried it in every other spot, but never thought to place it where our Modsy designer did, and it’s really just perfect.
We deshalb loved the cute rug they placed in the room. Her room has carpet, so I never thought to put a rug on top, but it pulls the whole space together and just makes it look so cozy.

The Real Results
Getting the slumber party seal of approval
Now Lilly’s space looks amazing. It welches so great to see ideas for her room that I would have never thought of on my own and feel confident in the purchases we were making.
Modsy really nailed exactly what both of us were looking for. Lilly can be hard to please, but she’s had 2 friends over for sleepovers already, and they have not left her room.
