Back in the day, I offered design services and made mood boards for the masses and as much as I loved it (it’s one of my true passions!), each one took me about 12-15 hours and I could only take a handful of clients a month because of the time investment I wanted to put into it. With a growing family and business, I had to pick and choose where to focus my energy and made the hard decision to stop virtually going into your homes and helping you pick paint colors and furniture and layout options.
The requests have continued to pour in (thank you!) and the desire in my heart never went away. When I see someone struggling to love their home, I WANT TO HELP! One night, I was talking to Chris about my goals and dreams for our business and mentioned that I would really love to find a way to launch design services again this year.
I’m thrilled to announce, we have teamed up with Modsy to bring you an exclusive, hand-curated collection of our favorite furniture and decor pieces (everything from art to sofas, plants and vases!) that you’ll be able to try on in your home in an exact room. Whether you want to design a room from scratch or finish it off or maybe you’re somewhere in between–we got you.
( above: a rendering of one of the living rooms designed with the Chris Loves Julia Collection )
Here’s How It Works
Design Services start at just $59/room!
These are all 3D renderings featuring pieces from our collection that are actually real pieces you can try on and have in your home. We work with all the quirky bump-outs, doors, drop ceilings and the bones your home has and come up with beautiful solutions. Pretty great, right? We can even play with layout options and send overhead renderings so you can see how everything will fit together.
I couldn’t be more excited about this partnership. We have used Modsy in our own home and have loved the service and this is truly a dream come true to be able to reach and help so many of you with your homes at an affordable rate.
Thank you so much for all of your support over these years. It has been so fun virtually welcoming you into our home day after day and we can’t wait to now see into all of your homes, and help them come to life!
Get started on the Chris Loves Julia x Modsy collection here!
Does Modsy still do the CJL collection? The coupon code isn’t working. Maybe there’s another place to tell them I want your collection?
Oh man! I was so excited when I first read the title of this because I just said to my husband that I wish you could help me decorate my house because I love your style and I am literally totally and completely stuck over here!!!!!! I cannot decide on my style, paint colors, furniture layouts, lights etc. literally stuck!!!!! I’ve never been this stuck!!!! I was super excited and willing to pay the price for your expertise too lol!!!!! HELP!!!
For me, personally, I have to say this was not a great experience. I think the fact that I signed up via the CLJ website (and was therefore after the CLJ style) might have been lost in the process. Totally not your fault but I was a little surprised to get back the designs I did, even after taking their style quiz. Very 90s, coastal, old fashioned with quite a large awkward space unaddressed. Not CLJ at all! Let’s hope the changes I requested take it within the ball park. Fingers crossed.
Does it work in Canada?
Just signed up and submitted my photos, etc. Excited to see how it all works! :)
Great idea! Can you tell me what color that dark gray is or is that only for the folks who sign up?
We just moved into our first home and have quite a bit of updating to do! I pretty much have a good idea for all of the rooms but there is one that I would love to use Modsy for an L shape sectional that I know will fit in a living room but I dont know if it LOOK good because of the way the room flows…
ANYWAYS my question is – If I cant afford to buy all the furniture right away, can I still use Modsy? Or is a part of it that I have to buy all of the items within a certain time frame? Also if I have certain things in mind from a brand not in their designer library can I use that or do they find a comparable item in their place?
Sorry for all the questions but I really want to use modsy and had these questions for a while! haha!
Love that woven basket! Where can I get it?
Is there furniture to accommodate an outdoor area? We are adding a screened porch that i would love to use this for.
is bedding something you can see in the rendering? i need some bedding help.
You always do what we are eagerly expecting！Thanks and love YOU！！
I absolutely love your style (and home). We are moving (down the street! lol) next April. I cannot wait to use this feature in our new home. My husband has no idea what’s coming…ha, ha.
This is fan-freaking-tastic! Congratulations! What an awesome resource to provide your users. I mean bravo!!!! I just finished a full gut but I just might pay to see what Julia thinks!! So happy for you both. Very smart!
Can you design a kitchen?
If you provide pictures of adjoining rooms/areas/hallways is Modsy able to take the general aesthetic of your home into consideration, or are they looking at the one specific room and nothing outside of it?
With this service can you keep some of your current pieces in the room? And will they be shown in the layout?
I’m excited for you guys on this new venture….congratulations. I love it.
Just a quick word about the naysayers who have logged some complaints about you taking away their business……try to ignore them, they’re just jealous that they didn’t think of it first!
I think its great and I’m excited for you both! <3
This is really exciting! Do you think it would be applicable to a business officer as well? We literally have a blank canvas for our office, and I wonder if these services would work in that space as well!
Can you link the blue rug as well? Thanks!
I would love to know where the rug in the bedroom is from too!!
I love Modsy – I used it to design my son’s nursery after your post on Polly’s room and I feel like I saved money on furniture and decor and it is my favorite room in my house!
If we choose your collection, can we only choose from that collection when we swap out items in the design or can we choose from everything in the Modsy catalog?
I LOVE that you added that we do NOT have to clean up before taking the room picture! It was a thoughtful, realistic detail to add that makes me love you guys even more. And makes the process that much more accessible… especially for us families with a gaggle of little kids but still trying to refresh our homes! Congratulations, this is so exciting for you both!!
This is great. Question though, if you already have a Modsy design package can you simply modify to see the chris loves Julia collection or to get your design layout?
Love this! How can we buy directly from your furniture line?
This is such a great idea for a partnership. Congrats to you guys :)
Hi, is this service only available in the US? I am actually resident in the UK.
First of all, I love your taste so this is super cool (even though I’m a little hesitant because I feel like a home is so personal I’m not sure another person can get it just right). I may give it a try though as we just moved and I’m stymied by the room we spend the most time in. My question is, can you describe the outside features of the room? Our family room windows look out to a river and I’d like to see that view from the couch. Is there a way to have some input on special features of the space even if it’s the view? Thanks!
I am sure you will be great at this! Wonderful service.
Congratulations to you guys! I’m looking to have a kitchen design. would that be within the interior design you’re offering?
This is genius! You are saving lives!! ????
This is a cool idea! The renderings you shared look awesome – really high quality. Something I will keep in mind for the future!
Okay, a few questions because getting this sort of help from you sounds amazing.
Is it YOU helping with the room or is someone behind the scenes of Modsy doing it?
Is it more of a furniture design (obviously because we can all get a peek at your awesome furniture collection) or help with the whole room? Paint color, art, curtains, rugs etc.
i did a modsy room in Jan because i saw your sponsored post and LOVED it! it is SUCH a great service — very exciting!
Curious if there are any plans to be able to change the wall coverings/flooring in the renderings? I was playing with my room layout just yesterday and it would be cool to be able to change the paint color of the walls in the rendering.
I looked into it a while ago, and you can- it’s an add-on feature that I believe is like $10 per change (since I too wanted to see my room with a different flooring and wall color)
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
