Style: It's Your Turn to Design with Remodelista

Mod City Mom attended the 2010 Dwell on Design event in Los Angeles. With over 200 vendors represented, Dwell does a great job of sifting through potential companies and only inviting the vendors who appeal to their Dwell readership. Focus areas include furniture, accessories, kitchen and bath, outdoor spaces, and building materials. As I was floating through the exhibition space, I felt so fortunate to be a part of this event—I wanted to share every little tidbit with our fans. Because only a few of us live in close proximity to the annual Dwell on Design event, have the time to weed through magazines, or the stamina to search the web for interesting design, there must be some way for everyone to collect this information as easy as it was for me on this Dwell-infused day. That’s when I, serendipitously, stumbled upon Remodelista—the online version of the Dwell on Design event.

Remodelista offers an online sourcebook for style and design. They spend countless hours browsing the web, design shops, and publications so you don’t have to—it’s the easiest way to “get inspired” since attending a design show of your very own. The site organizes information by design category. Steal This Look showcases rooms finished by top designers and provides links to the furniture, hardware, and accessories that are displayed. Prices and product details are all included. The 10 Easy Pieces section offers Remodelista’s top ten picks by category—from small kitchen appliances to wooden coffee tables to architect-designed flatware.

Design offerings range from high to low, cheap to expensive. Keep track of your favorites by using the My Design Files feature or access your picks by downloading the Remodelista app. Whether you sit on the precipice of a big design project or are just looking to replace an outdated item, Remodelista points you in the right direction.

About Mod City Mom

After becoming mothers, sisters Sarah Romine and Leah Weyandt wanted to marry the activities and interests that they experienced before motherhood with their new found lives with children. This was not always an easy task—traveling to obscure places, shopping at off-beat boutiques, and sipping lazy-afternoon cocktails doesn't always fit neatly with parenthood. Stemming from their frustration, they meticulously searched, and continue to search, for activities, establishments, and entertainment that they take pleasure in and their families benefit from. The result? Mod City Mom.

About Sarah

Sarah is a passionate cook, fashionista, writer, actor, and mother. Like all actors, she ended up working at many-a-restaurant to make ends meet and shopping at countless bargain boutiques to maintain her sense of personal style. Her culinary journey, love affair with fashion, and desire to remain true to herself after becoming a mother are the inspirations for this site. Sarah lives with her husband and two sons in Chicago.

About Leah

A polymath wannabe, Leah loves books, films, music, cooking, and travel. After co-starting a writing and editing shop in 2002, Leah has spent her spare time frequenting her favorite cities, hangouts, and haunts. Her obsession with finding the new, innovative, and quirky is the impetus behind this site. Leah lives with her two sons and husband in North San Diego County.
