The Kinfolk Home: Interiors for Slow Living Read Online Free - New York Times bestseller
When The Kinfolk Table was published in 2013, it transformed the way readers across the globe thought about small gatherings. In this much-anticipated follow-up, Kinfolk founder Nathan Williams showcases how embracing that same ethos—of slowing down, simplifying your life, and cultivating community—allows you to create a more considered, beautiful, and intimate living space.
The Kinfolk Home takes readers inside 35 homes around the world, from the United States, Scandinavia, Japan, and beyond. Some have constructed modern urban homes from blueprints, while others nurture their home’s long history. What all of these spaces have in common is that they’ve been put together carefully, slowly, and with great intention. Featuring inviting photographs and insightful profiles, interviews, and essays, each home tour is guaranteed to inspire.

Lovely photos of homes that look kind of astoundingly similar to one another. I don’t share the aesthetic: it doesn’t look real to me, all these homes with so few things, a heavy reliance on neutrals, and no plastic visible anywhere. Of course there are many people with beautiful taste, who can k...

Not what I'd thought it would be. These interiors are designed to within an inch of their lives. Obviously their children don't play with Legos or anything else remotely resembling an average human's life.

I think I was minimalist at one time. And then I had kids.

The book is full of well photographed interior spaces full of well orchestrated curated items. It's precisely that which falls flat for me. It seems very much like a catalogue of potential shopping list items wrapped around fluffy philosophy 'woo'.
I am ordinarily a pinterest-pinning, list writin...

Just okay is accurate. The photographs are beautiful; but, ugh, the homes are also very dismal - grey, slate, white - looks like Seattle all the time but inside the home. Definitely not for me! The print is so tiny and there is A LOT of it throughout the beautiful photographs. This book, in my op...

The pretentious title should have tipped me off. This book is about decorating aesthetic, featuring impossibly attractive couples with impossibly gorgeous homes and, in most cases, impossibly adorable children and dogs. Oh, and impossibly unlimited budgets. Fun to look at, but hard to imagine liv...

Not sure why this book is inviting polarized reactions from GR-reviewers. It’s not that different from innumerable other interior books. I like it. It’s a nice object to start with. Just the right size and heft. It has been carefully (perhaps over carefully) put together (by Kinfolk signature des...

Veldig pene mennesker med veldig mye penger bor i veldig kjedelige leiligheter og hus.

Well-photographed book but not enough variety in the aesthetics. All these homes blend together.

This lovely book invited me to slow down, contemplate, be satisfied, and live a healthier life. The images were filled with typical stylish Nordic/SoCal/mid-century-modern designs featuring exposed brick, walnut and teak, leather and linen and wool. I always try to read something slow and meditat...
