Remodelista: A New Blog on the CalFinder Radar

From on February 04, 2008 in General Remodel

RemodelistaThis not-so-new blog has been around for almost a year now, but nothing about it is outdated. The website itself is inviting, mirroring the sleek and contemporary, yet homey and comfortable design scheme frequently displayed on its pages. Four editors maneuver the pages, and none of them can be criticized for bad taste. They are Sarah, Julie, Janet, and Francesca, who reveal a lot about their personal preferences, even allowing visitors a glimpse of their own homes (which look, by the way, like pages taken from a magazine, with the added bonus of warmth and livability). Fortunately, the women also happen to be remodeling aficionados, with enough investment in remodeling to want to share their ideas and shopping finds with the rest of the world: thus, the blog. All have experience with renovation, and one wrote Japanese Design, published by Carlton Books.

Remodelista features 2 components: a Blog Roll on home accessories and shopping secrets and 10 Easy Pieces, an ongoing remodeling guide on everything from kitchens to bathrooms. Both components are designed to assist homeowners who appreciate good design but don’t have the time to do the research. To help these homeowners out, the editors screen a wide selection of design ideas from contributing bloggers. As mothers, the editors also include ideas for the entire family and have several posts on children’s rooms.

Remodelista is unique in that it doesn’t attempt to sell a thing, existing simply for the purpose of exchanging informed design sensibilities. In addition to inspiring those with an eye for detail but a finger on the clock, this is a great resource for seasoned designers and curious onlookers alike.
