- The Kinfolk Home, p.338
This is a book by the Kinfolk team headed by Nathan Williams (editor in chief), showing 35 homes all over the world that exemplifies the Kinfolk look with its emphasis on "slow living". If you are familiar with the magazine, then you know what kind of images you will see here.
I will admit I haven't bought the mag, but have perused through some issues in our local bookstore and visit the website once in awhile. When I saw the sample images from this book, I knew I had to get it. (The price after the discount is almost the same as the mag, so there's that:D) I'm not really well-versed in interior design, but like everyone, there are some arrangements I just gravitate to. (Plus, I just looking at interiors of other people's houses.:D)
This book does not disappoint. Every image is truly inspiring and beautifully shot, with well-written essays discussing the families that live in each home and their design philosophy. The aesthetic might not be everyone's cup of tea, but you can't deny that the dwellings in this book are just a joy to look at.
Below are just some of my faves...it was really hard to narrow down, you guys!
My #1 favourite: Tok and Hiromi Kise's home in Osaka, Japan
