Design and Furnish Your Home With This Software

It's like clockwork. Every 4-5 months we get tired of how our home is set-up and start rearranging. Maybe the TV should be here? This new artwork would look great on this wall, but then we need to move the sofa. It goes on and on. We think it has something to do with working from home. When you're constantly in the same space it's much easier to find room for improvement.

To help us with our Feng Shui ADHD we've been testing out a new software from Autodesk. It lets you build virtual rooms in whatever shape or size you want, add windows, doors, and then fill it with furniture and appliances. Basically you can build your floorplan and then drop in items, move them around, get rid of them, without all the heavy lifting...

The service, which is free, is called Project Drangonfly. "We discovered there were tons of people modeling their living rooms in the Sims video game," Mike Haley, a director of engineering at Autodesk, told the New York Times. "Now they can design realistic spaces."

A great tool for people who've just moved into a new space, or like us, like mixing things up on a regular basis.
