Overview

Remodelista.com is the go-to, undisputed authority for home design enthusiasts, remodelers, architects, and designers. Unlike sites that cater to all tastes, Remodelista has a singular and clearly defined aesthetic: classic pieces trump designs that are trendy and transient, and well-edited spaces take precedence over cluttered environments. High and low mix seamlessly here, and getting the look need not be expensive (think Design Within Reach meets Ikea). Remodelista decodes the secrets to achieving this aesthetic, with in-depth tours and lessons from 12 enviable homes; a recipe-like breakdown of the hardest-working kitchens and baths; dozens of do-it-yourself projects; “The Remodelista 100,” a guide to the best everyday household objects; and an in-depth look at the ins and outs of the remodeling process. In a world of design confusion, Remodelista takes the guesswork out of the process.

Carlson, founder and editor in chief of the interior design and home remodeling website Remodelista.com, visits 12 homes that exemplify her signature style, which is light filled and uncluttered, containing a mix of modern furnishings and vintage finds. The book also takes a closer look at an additional nine kitchens and five bathrooms. These 26 residences—none of which have appeared on the website and are located primarily in California, New York, and London—are shown in close to 500 color photographs. The author provides simple design projects, storage ideas, and a list of 100 Remodelista-recommended everyday items such as lamps, dinnerware, glassware, cookware, and linens. A guide to remodeling offers practical information on handling budgets and contracts and straightforward advice from professionals, while a list of resources completes this comprehensive volume. VERDICT An excellent source of inspiration for those interested in renovating their house or just revamping a room.
