i'm so excited we're going to dwell magazine's design conference at the los angeles convention center this weekend. it starts today + i've got FREE admission for all mod*mom readers to this weekend's exhibition with code: BDODEC + $50 off the conference ticket using coupon code: GRP22SP if you register online here. i'm going to investigate residential solar panel programs. disneyland's new house of the future is about to open. yay! so we'll also go there to investigate. nursery school's almost out + mod*tot has a few weeks off, then summer school, then she'll begin stanford university + california virtual academy's "virtual" kindergarten."
dwell on design features 200+ modern product exhibitors, a life-size sustainable prefab home neighborhood built on site, an eco-friendly conference of 50 speakers, plus 16 home tours of private green residences + evening parties at the museum of contemporary art + an art gallery. i'm going to investigate residential solar programs like solar city + sun run. solar city will have a charging station for the $100,000 electric tesla roadster. i got to sit in one at mod*tot's nursery school auction last year, because her teacher's husband works at tesla (he's a speedskater, like us).

WOW! Hold on, I'm going over to check out the magazine online!
I love looking at magazines digitally -- it's much easier for me to file pages from the magazine. I can print out what I need or save an image (and tag it) to share with my husband or architect & builder! Much easier than the piles of paper in my office.
i'll take pictures francie!
Yeah--I'm down with the digital mags too. I love that there is less waste, (like stated above, we can print just the pages we want) and there is more space in my office! So Rad: ) OK. I love the indoor outdoor space on page 165. One day I'll have that.(sigh). I would also like to see a section dedicated on how to transform a space with a small budget. Many of us are kind of working on one corner of our homes at a time and need to stretch the bucks.
I love their general modern tilt as well as their emphasis from time to time on smaller spaces. I'd love to see them tackle playrooms, toy storage, and childrens rooms.
I love how they are modern yet tastefully eco friendly, yet retro at times. I would love for my future solar house to be the next featured "Dwell home". That would be a dream come true.
I'm enjoying your site for the first time. Good job, though I do find the yellow print hard to read.
I'm dying to learn more about residential solar. I live in Florida...God knows we have plenty of sun!
The digital edition was great to view. I enjoyed seeing all the new products.
DWELL Magazine has changed most people's ideas about what they want in a dream home--for the better!
I love the design, everything is so modern! It's a really good magazine, I love it. I've read other digital magazine before, and they don't load that fast, they crash often, and they are not that easy to use, so thumbs up!
I couldn't access the digital issue...but I often check out the magazine at a friend's house...so: I love how they cover cool, ecologically friendly product designs, things that are super-chic looking, but also really accessable that you can use around the house. I wish they'd cover more bios of the designers, too...I always love learning about what makes people tick! Thanks!!! :)
The digital edition was great to view,i really enjoyed it.
