These days everyone has a favourite blog they love to read or get their daily inspiration from…
At Such & Such we have a few but one of our all time favourites is Remodelista. To say we are fans is probably an understatement, I think addicted is a better description. We get their daily dose of design ideas, amazing architectural projects, shopping ideas and so much more and I am always a little put out if I don’t manage to read it.
Set up just over six years ago by four friends obsessed by design, this blog/site has grown into a an amazing reference tool for anyone embarking on a design project, from a house renovation to a room renovation this site has got it all. The editors have done all the hard work and the blog offers readers “an edited, screened, preapproved selection of our greatest hits.” This is accessible design, with the editors just as likely to feature an ikea product as they are an antique…in other words they are not snobby about where they source their items, they just want to offer the best in each field and hopefully something to suit a range of budgets and tastes.
The site is not only brilliant as a reference tool, it also allows us to have a guilt free nose around some amazing houses, offices, hotels and restaurants situated all over the world. For interior design lovers this site really does have it all, from an inspiration section for each room, to a travel section, to a shop showcasing the best taps, to cleats, to beds.
The clever editors/friends behind Remodelista brought out a book last year. Two years in the making the book, entitled ‘REMODELISTA, A manual for the considered home’ features twelve houses they love and user guides to the kitchen and Bathroom. It also includes design ideas and the “Remodelista 100″, a list of the blogs’ all time favourite everyday objects and some very real advice on renovation projects, as well as a very helpful directory to top it all off… Here are some images from the pages of the book to give you a little taster of what it is all about.
