Online PR News – 15-July-2010 – – SAN FRANCISCO – Remodelista.com, a leading home design website that counts Martha Stewart and Gwyneth Paltrow among its readership, has just released apps for the iPhone and iPad, allowing users to stay current with Remodelista content and to source products on the go. The applications have been enthusiastically received: Gizmodo cited Remodelista's new apps in a roundup of the “week’s best apps.” Appolicious called it “a savvy app for unique finds and inspiration,” and PadGadget praised it as a “great source of ideas for interior design lovers.”
“This takes Remodelista’s fantastic sourcebook and makes it portable,” said LA designer Todd Nickey of Nickey Kehoe, whose clients include Natalie Portman and Mark Ruffalo. “As a designer, I am typically on a job site or at various trade locations. Having this resource by my side is invaluable. I can pull up an image or a fixture and show it immediately to a client.”
Remodelista CEO Josh Groves said over 50,000 Remodelista apps have been downloaded by Remodelista’s dedicated fans since it launched on June 25. “Home remodelers, architects and designers have told us how happy they are to now have Remodelista at their fingertips, especially as they wade through the numerous decisions involved in a project.” “We have always aimed to streamline the design process for our readers; the iPhone and iPad apps help take this to the next level.”
Remodelista, which posts five to seven times daily, is written by four women, Julie Carlson, Janet Hall, Sarah Lonsdale and Francesca Connolly, who share a similar aesthetic sensibility and passion for design. Drawing on their combined professional backgrounds as magazine editor, video producer, fabric designer and human resources director, the women have merged their talents with an entrepreneurial drive to form Remodelista.
“Anyone who has survived a remodel—or simply shopped for a couch—knows that an enormous amount of research goes into every decision,” says Remodelista Editor Julie Carlson. “Our goal from the beginning has been to provide design and remodeling guidance, based on our own shared experiences and knowledge. With our new app, Remodelista becomes a mobile design assistant, helping readers make selections while shopping, touring a renovation project, or interviewing an architect or design professional.
San Francisco-based Remodelista.com is a leading design and renovation blog operated by Remodelista, LLC. Launched in 2007 by four women, the site won the annual “Homie” award in 2009 for Best Home Design Blog. Remodelista has also been recognized as a leading resource for home furnishing and design ideas by Domino, Dwell, Elle Décor, Martha Stewart Living, Real Simple, and Sunset magazines, as well as several sites online including Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP, Yahoo!
