Concerned about the state of the planet and wanting to do your part? Written with urgency, Remodelista: The Low-Impact Home gives clear guidance and inspiration for creating a home that’s both sustainable and stylish. The book features room-by-room tips for reducing your environmental footprint, as well as tours of artful living quarters belonging to people who interpret low-impact living in a myriad of ways, from a remodeled apartment inspired by the Slow Food movement to a tree-house cabin to a multigenerational courtyard compound.

Every page offers information that you can act on right away—including best practices for choosing household essentials, from lightbulbs to sofas; guidelines for a low-impact, energy-efficient remodel; and how to recycle or donate your castoffs so they don’t end up in the landfill. Like all Remodelista books, this manual is both a visual delight and an invaluable resource. Change begins in the home, and it’s inspiring to learn how climate-aware living choices, no matter how small, contribute to the greater good.
Guidance includes:

  • Low-impact remodeling ideas and approaches for every room
  • Planet-friendly essentials: paint, rugs, bedding, furniture, and more
  • The Vintage 75: favorite tried-and-true objects for everyday use
  • Plus the lowdown on composting, energy-efficient appliances, insulation, HVAC, roofing, and more

    About the Authors
    Margot Guralnick is the coauthor of Remodelista: The Organized Home, producer of Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home, and a longstanding member of the Remodelista team. Based in the Bronx, she grew up outside of Boston and practices New England thriftiness as a way of life. She has been a vintage collector since childhood, and makes botanical art from fallen leaves.

    Fan Winston is a long-time magazine editor and founding editor of the Organized Home, a companion website to Remodelista. She is thrilled to co-write a book with her fellow Remodelista team member that champions the same principles—a respect for nature, a distaste for wastefulness—her Chinese immigrant parents instilled in her. A mom to two boys, she's highly skilled at turning off lights in empty rooms.
