a sneak peek.

There’s a new book coming to bookstores on November 5th and while I can’t claim to have been a part of any of its creation, I’m not above bragging that I’ve gotten to rub shoulders with the women who did bring the masterpiece to light.

The blog-to-book model is not always a successful one, but in the case of Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home, it’s pure gold. 400 pages of gorgeous photographs that manage to inspire, without catapulting readers over the edge of lusty despair. And this from a woman who makes her home in a wee 240. Kitchen cutlery in an old filing cabinet? Why yes, I can do that. Keeping things simple and spare while still managing to be warm and personal? Well, that’s just the Remodelista way. Head here to see the chapter-by-chapter guide to what you’ll find inside.

The book is available for pre-order on Amazon, and if you place your order soon, I have a sneaking suspicion that you’ll be rewarded with an early delivery. This just might be the best $22.50 you’ll spend all month.

    I am intrigued and off to take a closer look just from these images. Being a minimalist while also surrounding oneself with warmth and personal mementos is admirable and pure gold as you stated.

    I especially like those chairs. I've been looking for a new chair for my desk; the one I use now is so worn out that it's literally coming apart at the seams (is seams the right word?)

    I had never done this, but I did now. Bought it right away! After seeing the sneak peek I couldn't resist. It looks fantastic and with things that I would actually want and could make myself. Awesome.
