The Best San Diego Interior Design Service

Let’s face it: Affordable interior design services in San Diego, CA, can be hard to come by. Rather than a traditional interior design firm, here are 10 reasons to try Modsy’s fun and easy online design services.

1. See Your Space Designed In Life-like 3D

When it comes to designing a home, inspiration and interior design mood boards are great but they don’t actually let you see how the furniture or paint color you love will look in your rooms.

We decided to change that with our online design process and Modsy iOS app. When you work with an interior designer at Modsy, they’ll present you with realistic images of your exact room expertly designed in 3D. You’ll be able to see how real furniture, decor, colors, and patterns all work together in your space! It’s what makes our online interior design service different.

So whether you’re designing your dream home on the San Diego coast, moving into a cute Spanish bungalow in La Jolla, or renovating a space in a brand-new San Diego condo, we’ll turn your inspiration and concepts into photo-real renderings of your exact rooms fully designed with furniture you can shop on the spot. Just think: No more wondering or guessing if furniture will match or fit into your spaces!

2. Get Matched With San Diego Interior Designers

At Modsy, we work with some of the best interior designers all over the country—from New York to Chicago to San Diego. So if you’re in San Diego, we’ll pair you with one of our best interior designers who can get your project off the ground from anywhere. We make sure you’re working with an expert designer who’s familiar with your region, the lifestyle needs of your city, and the general home design aesthetic of your location.

So if you’re decorating a Spanish bungalow or townhouse apartment in San Diego, we’ll be sure to find you one of our San Diego interior designers who understands the climate, the furniture, and decor that work well with that, and the overall coastal interior design style of the city.

What’s your online interior design process like?

It’s simple and fast! First, you’ll answer a few questions to give us the full scoop on your style, budget, lifestyle needs, and any design challenges you’re encountering with your space. All of this will allow your specific interior designer to tailor the designs for your space so that it checks all your boxes.

And because everything is done online, once you start your project you’ll be able to work with your designer from anywhere! You’ll be able to message them, give them feedback, and even shop the exact pieces they recommend to you all from your iPhone or laptop. So even if you’re on vacation, completely swamped at work, or when life just happens, your designer can easily keep things moving on your project so you don’t have to.

3. Our 3D-Rendering Tech Keeps Things Simple

Our proprietary 3D design technology has completely changed how interior design works. And by that, we mean that you can do everything on your computer or even your phone with our iOS app. Start by taking a few photos of your room or use our app to scan it in just a few seconds. We’ll turn your pictures into custom 3D renderings of your exact room, capturing every nook, molding, and outlet!

Your designated interior designer will take it from there. They’ll get to work on the interior design for your space, adding paint colors and furniture, and decor to scale. This way, you’ll get to see how pieces fit inside your room before pulling the trigger on buying them—which can be especially important for big-ticket items like a sofa or a dining table! Our designers work fast, so you can expect them to present you with a final fully designed, photo-realistic 3D room in no time!

4. Why People Love Our San Diego Interior Designers!

We can talk forever about our easy and fast online interior design service. So instead we’re going to let a few of our happy clients in San Diego, CA, do the talking. From a Cali-cool family home along the San Diego coast to a charming bungalow in La Jolla, see how we helped bring each interior design vision to life!

When her daughter moved away to college, Ann decided it was time to revamp her room with a more grown-up vibe that her daughter would enjoy when she came home to California to visit.


I wanted to feel confident that I was making good design choices for the space. Working with my Modsy designer gave me that confidence.

– Ann G.


With their sons headed off to college, Amy and her husband decided it was time to replace their collection of hand-me-down furniture with all new pieces. But they needed help designing a conversational layout and cozy TV-viewing space that also worked with their San Diego home’s unique Spanish-revival-style architecture.


Modsy was able to create a beautiful and doable design for our living room makeover. My designer took the stress out of redecorating and online furniture shopping by filling my space with beautiful items at affordable prices. The whole process was fast, easy, and stress-free.

– Amy H.


Mary, a busy dietician, wanted a design refresh for her bedroom. She thought the space had good bones but she needed help finding decor that would go with her foundational furniture and make the space feel complete.


I loved that I could complete my project on my own time, putting each space together when it worked for me. Though I do have to say, I was excited to start purchasing furniture in my living area! It’s nice to know that this space that frustrated me for so long is finally one that I can enjoy.

– Mary C.


5. Designs Tailored To San Diego Life

When you work with an interior designer from San Diego, they’ll also make sure to tailor the interior design of your space to reflect your personal aesthetic and California lifestyle—as well as address any design challenges unique to your home. That can mean finding furniture pieces in indoor-outdoor materials that can stand up to the San Diego heat or selecting unique decor and accents that compliment your home’s Spanish interior design and architecture that’s specific to San Diego. Whatever your design needs, we’ve got you covered.

6. Interior Designers In San Diego Get Pricey

Like many cities with easy access to the ocean, real estate in San Diego, CA, can get pretty expensive. So you’ll find San Diego interior designers are equally expensive to hire. A traditional decorator or interior design firm in San Diego can charge several hundred dollars just for an initial consultation, then a $50–$200 hourly rate. And that’s before you spend on furniture and decor for your actual space.

We do things differently at Modsy. You pay per room, not by the hour. And our prices are fixed and transparent. Our interior design packages start at $159 per room, which is much more affordable!

7. We Offer Unlimited Design Revisions!

Yep, you read it right. You get unlimited revisions when you work with us. So if you’re not happy with your first round of designs, your interior designer will work with you until they send you a design you absolutely love.

After you’ve sent us your Style Quiz and photos of your space, your designer will get to work on initial 3D designs to send to you for review. At this stage, you’ll be able to give feedback to your designer and adjust the interior design until it feels right for you.

In general, most of our customers go through 2-3 revisions before arriving at an interior design plan that checks all their boxes. The best part? Our unlimited revisions are 100% complimentary so they come with no additional charges or hidden fees. It’s another bonus that makes our online design service affordable for everyone. With all that in mind, take the time to consider all your furniture and decorating options so that you’ll walk away with a dream home design scheme that’s just right for you!

8. Try Out Popular California Design Styles

San Diego, CA, has a distinct interior design style that’s part coastal, part refined, while still managing to feel totally laid-back. It’s what gives San Diego homes a charming, welcoming vibe. If you’re not sure how to approach your space, your designer will help you discover your style and bring it to life. Or if you love the ease of California interiors and want to work that into your interior design, here are three popular looks to experiment with in your 3D designs:

California Casual

This classic Cali style is perfectly relaxed and laid-back with zero fuss. It’s rooted in comfortable foundation pieces, like deep white sofas and armchairs, lots of natural textures and accents in the form of jute and sisal rugs, and a boho-eclectic pop of bright color and pattern here and there. It’s all about a neutral backdrop and letting your personality through in fun accents. This is a popular design style for many San Diego bungalows and studio apartments.

Modern Coastal

The beach house with a West Coast twist—and a popular style for San Diego homes with indoor-outdoor spaces. If you’re going for this look, try decorating rooms with Mid-Century modern furnishings alongside clean-lined contemporary pieces, and lots of natural textures, such as woven baskets, jute, rattan, and leather as well. You’ll then want to anchor it all in a palette of cool blue, green, and gray tones that give your space an open, airy look.

Rustic Industrial

San Diego isn’t just about laid-back beach houses. There are homes that feature a more industrial edge as well, though often with rustic undertones. The rustic industrial style is a popular interior design look found in many San Diego condos. These spaces often combine loft-style furniture that has a modern industrial edge, like Chesterfield sofas and steel coffee tables, with rustic pieces made with raw and natural materials that convey comfort, like driftwood, terracotta hues, and tan leather.
