Remodelista launches with a simple idea: four design-minded friends sharing remodeling tips based on a dozen renovation experiences. The original team—Julie Carlson, Francesca Connolly, Janet Hall, and Sarah Lonsdale—meets weekly around Julie’s Mill Valley dining table. Read our original mission statement here.
Our top post of the year is on interior sliding barn doors.
We discover the work of architects like Fernlund & Logan and Ray McMakin and begin featuring full projects (this was in a time when most architects didn’t even have a Web presence).
Remodelista wins the Apartment Therapy Homies Award for Best Home Design Blog. The New York Times takes notice: Miss Your Decor Magazine? Click Here.
We launch our by-invitation Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory (Steve Delahoyd writes in Adweek: “The site highlights the best of the best (and if you’re familiar with Remodelista, you know their filtering abilities can often range from pretty amazing to downright otherworldly).”
Remodelista’s Janet Hall makes an appearance on the Martha Stewart Show to discuss organizing solutions (two years later Julie Carlson makes a repeat visit to discuss biergarten style).
In December, we host our first Remodelista Holiday Market at the Summer House in Mill Valley (we know it’s a success when dozens of readers line up in the torrential rain to gain entrance before the doors open at 10 a.m.).
A surprise hit: Our post on black toilet paper.
