Blog Overview | Remodelista


Remodelista is a rising design blog with a national following. In addition to the blog, editors also maintain the Remodelista Architect / Designer Directory, a selective listing of architects, interior designers and lighting designers around the world, chosen for their “Commitment to excellent design and to furthering innovative and sustainable design.” Firm listings are organized by geographic region, practice areas, and project type.

Remodelista’s editors: Julie, Janet, Sarah and Francesca, are a group of friends who share interior design sensibilities and favor classic and livable over trendy – as well as transient and streamlined interiors over cluttered environments. Their style is minimalist and they prefer thoughtfully designed products over mass-market, disposable goods and they believe the best advice comes from like-minded friends.

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 grueling marathon known as the remodel or simply looking for a design voyeur fix, we invite you to peruse our offerings.
