Lifestyles: A slow and simple life

Nathan Williams and Katie Searle-Williams began exploring a philosophy of “slow living” with the publication of their first issue of Kinfolk magazine in 2011. The couple aimed to connect and share their ideas with other young professionals longing for a departure from the Martha Stewart school of thought, where more is more. The Kinfolk Home: Interiors for Slow Living, the follow-up to Williams’ 2013 bestseller, The Kinfolk Table, includes advice on creating homes that foster community, center on simplicity and allow for slow living—and includes 34 essays from creatives all around the world. The featured homes and interiors share a common aesthetic: muted, neutral tones, elements of the natural world and touches of industrial materials. Almost all of the furniture pieces are sleek and modern, but these are paired with more rustic materials like hand-thrown ceramics, leather and wool. Despite the constant designer and artist name-dropping, the calming, uncluttered interiors bathed in natural light alongside the contributors’ earnest essays make Williams’ slow living seem inviting. After all, slow living “isn’t about determining how little we can live with—it’s about working out what we simply can’t live without.”

SO LONG, IKEA
Appreciate the minimalist look, but on a tighter budget? Have no fear, designer Ben Uyeda can teach you how to easily construct timeless and sturdy modern furniture that you’ll be proud to showcase. Uyeda relies on readily found materials like wood, concrete and metals, and he includes handy advice on buying and even scavenging for each one. HomeMade Modern: Smart DIY Design for a Stylish Home includes enough projects to outfit your entire home, from the living room to the bedroom and even an outdoor space. You’ll find the Concrete Bucket Stool that started Uyeda on his crusade, along with essential pieces like the Flip Desk and Platform Bed. Uyeda offers endlessly helpful troubleshooting tips in his “What could go wrong?” sections for each project, and if you get tired of a piece, there are even clever suggestions for ways to recycle and repurpose them. 

TOP PICK IN LIFESTYLES
For in-depth reporting on the homes, cuisine, culture and creatives in the South, no publication has been as consistent as Southern Living magazine. A champion for the region’s distinctive lifestyle, the enduring and highly circulated publication marks 50 years in print with the sumptuous and celebratory Southern Living 50 Years. Beginning with a short history of the magazine’s inception in 1966 as a cousin to Progressive Farmer magazine and following its evolution, the book includes excerpts from the most enduring travel pieces, memorable photo-essays, recipes and think pieces on cultural topics from bustling Atlanta to quiet Appalachia. And as with the magazine, you don’t have to be a Southerner to draw inspiration from its pages. Anyone who values print media, community, creativity and a cozy home will enjoy this beautifully compiled coffee table book.
