Book Review Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home by Julie Carlson
Title: Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home
Author: Julie Carlson
Stars: 3 stars out of 5
I had high hopes for this book but it fell short for those who live on a very tight budge and want to make the dollar go a very long way and still make there home look stunning.
The photos are beautiful and undeniable amazing to look though even in a PDF file I was in awe of the amazing photos. At one point I found myself laughing when it mention a 300 sqf bedroom as small. My first apartment was 300 spf. I found quickly that this wasn't a book for my budget at all. Instead it was for the dream home we all know we want but will never have.
I loved the paint colors but nothing was taken into accountable a mother with 4 young children or grandparents who want to have there grand children enjoy there home.
While it is beautiful this book and ideas a not idealist for those on budgets with families.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Artisan for the advance copy.
Remodelista.com is the go-to, undisputed authority for home design enthusiasts, remodelers, architects, and designers with disposable income. The antithesis to 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.
