Designing A Nursery With My Favorite Room Design Tool

Designing a nursery can be overwhelming when you don’t know where to start! Meet Modsy, a design service that helps you plan your interior design projects!


I love DIY projects, so I’m super excited that I get to design another nursery for this new baby! The only problem is, while I’m great at repainting furniture or making wall art, I’m not actually an interior designer, so coming up with a design and layout for an entire room from scratch is not my forte.

Luckily there’s : a personalized home design solution that utilizes 3D visualization technology to let you try on furniture before you buy. Just take photos and measurements of your space, send them in to actual designers, and they come up with two separate 3D rendered designs for you! I tried them out for help with designing the nursery, and I was THRILLED with how easy it was, and how perfect the two designs were!

Designing The Nursery With My Favorite Room Design Tool

The Modsy designers will work within your budget, use furniture and products from your favorite stores, or even work around custom furniture pieces you already own. They’ll help you revise your designs as many times as you want to get them perfect, and once you’re happy with the designs, you can purchase the pieces directly through Modsy at a discount…so easy!

I started out by taking Modsy’s fast, free Style Quiz to help make sure the designers knew my tastes and preferences for decor style. You can also share your Pinterest or mood boards with them to give them an even better insight into your style!

Next I took photos and measurements of the guest room, which we are converting into a nursery. This part was so easy! I just took my phone into the room, logged into my Modsy account on my phone, and it walked me through taking the photos (you have to make sure you get the floor AND ceiling in your shots so they can get the measurements correct). I didn’t even have to empty out the room first; just take pictures of your room as-is and Modsy will do the rest!

This is literally one of the photos I sent them, mussed up bed, random clutter, and all!

I also had a few pieces of furniture we already own that I knew I wanted to incorporate into the room: the crib my dad made for AJ when she was born, and a gorgeous old dresser I found at a garage sale that I want to fix up and repaint. I took photos and measurements of those two pieces and sent them in as well so the Modsy designers could incorporate them into the room.

A few days later Modsy sent me an empty 3D version of the room along with 2 design concepts, complete with layout and product recommendations. Both designs they sent me matched my style perfectly! And all of the products they used fit within our budget and were available through our favorite stores like Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, etc. It isn’t some crazy expensive, hard to find, limited to only boutique stores design.

Modsy is a practical solution for normal people just looking to do a room makeover without breaking the bank! You can design and shop for your home, in one place, with products from hundreds of partners, and they truly take the guesswork out of buying furniture because you can see it in your actual space before you buy.

They took my messy bed photo and measurements and turned them into these gorgeous designs. And my crib and dresser are right there in the design, along with all the other recommended products! Plus they even factored in the radiator in the room, which is basically an immovable object we have to work around when designing in our home.

When you log in to your Modsy account you’ll see your design photos as well as notes from your designer about certain pieces or areas of the room. There’s also a 360 degree view where you can virtually “walk through” the room at look at it from any angle or direction. You’ll also see a list of all the products they used in your room, and you can buy any of them that you want through Modsy at a discount!

If you want any changes made to your design, just contact your Modsy Designer. They’ll make unlimited revisions for you to help you get exactly what you want.

I’m so happy with the designs Modsy came up with for that room. I’m going to go with the first one where the crib and the rocker are on the same wall, and the changing table/dresser is on the wall by itself when you walk into the room. That furniture layout is perfect for us, and I LOVE the other pieces they added to the room besides my existing crib and dresser!
