Last time, I was in Paris catching up with my best friends Emma and Laetitia, both reminded me that when we were at University, I was already dreaming of a big holiday home where everybody could gather together. I think it is probably why these beautiful images by Leo Patrone for Kinfolk magazine in the Green Building in NYC really stroke a chord.
Leo Patrone is a wedding and portrait photographer and you are going to die when you will spend a bit of time on his website and drool over his beautiful images.
Kinfolk magazine is something that I think, you will also very much enjoy reading about.
It is a growing community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings. They recognize that there is something about a table shared by friends, not just a wedding or once-a-year holiday extravaganza, that anchors our relationships and energizes us and like my post on SLØ magazine yesterday, helps to focus on what matters.
Every element of Kinfolk —the features, photography, and general aesthetics—are consistent with the way they feel entertaining should be: simple, uncomplicated, and less contrived. Kinfolk is the marriage of their/our appreciation for art and design and our love for spending time with family and friends.
On this note, I hope you had a great Easter weekend with friends and family. Personally I feel like I've eaten far more at Easter than we did last Christmas in New-Zealand but I endeavour to run when we are in France next week to burn off all the chocolate the Easter bunny brought us.
I almost forgot to share this beautiful video....
