Delving deeper than decor, author Nathan Williams invites each resident to share their values, the ways those ideals have shaped their homes and the ways their homes have in turn shaped them.

In this edition of Kinfolk magazine, we explore the relationship between community and design. How can design strengthen bonds with our families, friends and neighbors? And how can good design improve our quality of life?

"Design is a type of communication. It’s about the way an object or idea speaks to its audience. But good design not only gets its message across—it also engages us in a conversation."

"When nature lowers the dial on sunlight and heat, our moods can easily sink in unison. Winter is when Danish folks savor their tradition of hygge (pronounced “hyoo-guh”), which is a sense of coziness, comfort and belonging all wrapped up in one. Hygge exists in all candlelit rooms, convivial conversations and shared meals in Denmark. But everyone around the globe can enjoy the feeling of hygge—just curl up with a book, gather in the kitchen or cuddle a furry companion."

"These are 48 hours to call it how you like. It’s a judgment-free zone to be as still, active, solo or social as you please. Maybe you’ll be the center of your weekend and enjoy a dinner for one, phone switched beyond silent to off. Alternatively, your two days might entail a series of catch-ups, rendezvous and soirees with good pals. No matter how you fill the hours, make sure they’re filled on your terms."
