Staff Reviews

In their thoughtful and well-executed first book, the editors of have set a new standard for interior design resource books. Their design aesthetic favors classic over trendy and carefully edited over cluttered. And it's not meant to break the bank. Antiques, Design Within Reach, and IKEA happily coexist in their look. The book is organized logically as an introduction to their design model, with twelve homes that exemplify their idea of good design, followed by the all-important kitchen and bath sections. Next comes an individual ideas section followed by a list of 100 timeless design objects. They save the best for last in "Remodeling Reality," where they provide the framework for planning your remodel along with the tools to get the job done within budget. This design sourcebook will be serving us well for many years into the future. -- Alan Dishman

— From Even More Beautiful Gift Books 2013

Description 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.
