Remodelista - Home Styling Resource


Billed as a home design and remodelling resource, Remodelista is the combined work of a group of US women with impeccable taste. 

Here, they explore colour palettes, paint choices, storage, among other home basics. You will also come across great houses from all over the world, as well as inspirational round-ups of everything from lights to rugs.

We are a group of friends who share eerily similar design sensibilities; a collective design DNA. We care (OK, we care a lot) about interiors. We wake up in the middle of the night to bid on Thonet dining chairs;we page through stacks of design magazines every month.

We love Ikea as much as DWR; we believe a mix of high and low—and of vintage and new—animates a space. When we need to make a daunting investment decision (ever bought a couch?), we research it to the ends of the earth. We favour classic and liveable over trendy and transient; streamlined interiors over cluttered environments. Our style is minimalist but not monastic. We choose thoughtfully designed products over mass-market, disposable goods.

We believe the best advice comes from like-minded friends. We’ve survived a dozen remodels among us, and after years of midnight consultations and email debates weighing the merits of a particular cabinet pull, we created an online forum for sharing our finds. Why go looking for the perfect faucet if your style-savvy neighbour has found The One?

We all have friends who appreciate beautiful interiors but don’t have the time (or the maniacal drive) to obsess about the details. So we’re making it easy for our similarly inclined readers by offering an edited, screened, preapproved selection of our greatest hits.

If you’re design savvy, you’ll realize we’ve done the hard work for you. If you’re a neophyte, you can’t go wrong. Whether you’re embarking on the gruelling marathon known as the remodel or simply looking for a design voyeur fix, we invite you to peruse our offerings'.

Visit their website for an ever-changing look at the world of design, colour and flair. Or, pop by their Facebook page for up-to-the-minute ideas and fresh content! They also have a 'My Design Files' area where you can collate your design ideas to reflect upon and share with your friends, designers and architects alike! Truly interactive!

Let us know what you think! We're inspired!
