Reviews for Remodelista : A Manual for the Considered Home

Library Journal Reviews 2013 November #1

Carlson, founder and editor in chief of the interior design and home remodeling website, 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.
