We're so glad you're here.
At Kindred we believe in the magic of home and we're on a mission to capture its essence
through our design projects and collection of handmade wares.
It might sound crazy but proximity to IKEA is one of the things I miss most about living in a big city! When we lived in Boston, San Diego, and Charlotte, Ikea was just down the road. Sadly we don't have that luxury in Rochester - c'mon IKEA Western NY deserves an IKEA too. Luckily I've been able to recruit my sister-in-law, who lives in Philly where there are TWO IKEA stores, to shop for me. Between Pinterest and some of my own favorite bloggers there are plenty of Ikea resources but the process of sending my sister-in-law my IKEA shopping lists inspired me to create a resource you could find here on Kindred.
Hey there, Globetrotter! Before I get into the nitty gritty of our Icelandic adventures I have one serious question: where does the time go? Seriously? This blog post has been sitting in my unpublished folder for 18 months! Eighteen months! If you follow along with Kindred Home on Instagram you know that a lot has happened in that time. I've told myself I'd come back to this post countless times but it always got pushed further down my to-do list, and I honestly don't know what inspired me to finally hit publish. I hope you enjoy the tips and come back if you're ever planning your own Icelandic adventure!
