Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home

Remodelista - A Manual for the Considered Home 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.

A labor of love weighing in at nearly 400 pages, the book features all new, never-been-seen-before content including dozens of design ideas. Oh, and a lovely introduction by one of Remodelista’s design idols, Julianne Moore—plus an exclusive on her newly remodeled NYC kitchen.
