Julie Carlson is the editor in Chief of Remodelista.com (a site founded with three design-infatuated friends in 2007). Remodelista.com is a amazing and prestigious decor site with helpful tips for our homes.
Remodelista (published by Artisan Books) is the ultimate remodelling resource guide. With her expertise on everything from do-it-yourself home renovations to choosing colour palettes, she’s sharing her design knowledge and giving us some helpful tips along the way.
The The New York Times has considered Remodelista “A lovely and extremely useful portfolio of houses, rooms and products, which will no doubt serve as an inspiration and as a source book for would-be redecorators and remodelers. . . Terrific.”
“For the past two years, we’ve been working behind the scenes on our first book, Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home. A labor of love weighing in at nearly 400 pages, the book features all new, never-been-seen-before content: tours of 12 of our favorite houses, a roundup of our top 100 household essentials, chapters on kitchen and bath remodels, and dozens of design ideas. Oh, and a lovely introduction by one of our design idols, Julianne Moore.” in Remodelista
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.
