Remodelista.com and Dwell Media have teamed up to provide 100 free interior design consultations during the annual Dwell on Design Conference happening the last week of June. Up to 100 attendees will get expert interiors advices from design professionals along with the opportunity to get feedback on their project from the Remodelista editors.
Online PR News – 08-June-2010 – – SAN FRANCISCO – June 7, 2010 – Remodelista.com, a leading home design blog, is partnering with Dwell Magazine and Curated, an LA and NY-based interior design firm, to offer 100 free design consulting sessions to Dwell on Design attendees in Los Angeles on June 26th and 27th as part of the “Designer is IN” program. The gratis design consultations will be provided by local interior designers, who will be available to help across the entire home design spectrum. Remodelista editors will also be present to meet with attendees and give input on projects.
“We think this will add tremendous value to attendees,” said Dwell Media President Michela O’Connor Abrams. “Over 50 % of the Dwell on Design audience is researching some kind of home design project within 12 months.” Remodelista CEO Josh Groves says that, “kitchen and bath design, paint color selection, and furniture choices top the list for consumer requests for help.”
The project is an obvious one for Remodelista, which has established itself as a leading online source for home design guidance. The New York Times states, “Remodelista is earning a reputation as a sourcebook for interior design at a time when many shelter magazines, including Domino, House & Garden, and O at Home, have fallen by the wayside.” Designers and architects are increasingly using Remodelista and other blogs to fill this gap. In addition, Remodelista recently launched its Architect/Designer Directory, where readers can find designers to help with remodels and new projects.
“Anyone who has survived a remodel—or simply shopped for a couch—knows that an enormous amount of research goes into every selection,” says Remodelista Editor Julie Carlson. “We provide guidance about interiors through our daily posts. This sponsorship is intended to give readers a chance for highly specific design help.” Dwell and Remodelista have partnered on projects before, but this is their first collaboration at the increasingly popular Dwell on Design conference, which expects 17,000 attendees this year.

Remodelista, which posts five time daily, counts style-conscious Hollywood luminaries such as Gwyneth Paltrow (who calls it her “obsession”) and It’s Complicated director Nancy Meyers (who said “the editors are brilliant” in C Magazine) among its readership, as well as nationally known, cutting-edge design professionals such as interior designer Darryl Carter and Los Angeles architect and author Barbara Bestor.
“Remodelista is a great resource. Professionally, we use it to search for products or inspiration imagery to share with clients when proposing design concepts, and we are excited about the site’s new features,” says Oliver Freundlich of MADE LLC, a prominent architectural firm in New York City that has done projects for actress Julianne Moore and artist Chuck Close.
