BOOK REVIEW – KINFOLK HOME by NATHAN WILLIAMS…

Kinfolk Home by Nathan Williams. Although not a new book (2015) I couldn’t stop looking through this book with Kinfolk’s focus on slowing down and creating a more intentional, beautiful home where they say the attention is shifting.

Through luscious photographs and insightful interviews, the author takes us into 40 homes around the world, from the Americas to Europe, Asia to Africa, ending in Australia. The homes range from an old cabin in the woods to clean-lined modern apartments, from singles living in small spaces to sprawling, multi-generational houses in the country. Each will feel unmistakably Kinfolk.

Nathan Williams is the author of The Eye, The Kinfolk Entrepreneur, The Kinfolk Home, and The Kinfolk Table and the editor in chief of Kinfolk, a lifestyle magazine published quarterly by Ouur studio. Founded in 2011, Kinfolk maintains a vibrant contributor base from Copenhagen to Cape Town and hosts hundreds of global events each year that bring the community together.

A book you can delve into at any time and well worth keeping out on your table. Available from Amazon and other good bookshops.

THE KEY TO HAPPINESS…

The key to happiness may be to live the ‘Hygge’ lifestyle. The word ‘Hygge‘originates from a Norweign word meaning ‘well-being‘. For almost five hundred years, Denmark and Norway were one kingdom, until Denmark lost Norway in 1814.

Hygge‘ appeared in written Danish for the first time in the early 1800’s, and the link between hygge and well being or happiness maybe no coincidence.

Danes are the happiest people in Europe according to the European Social Survey and found in The Little Book of Hygge, The Danish Way to Live Well‘, by Meik Wiking.
