MEET KARIN & THE TEAM
KINDRED LIFESTYLE CO.
Our goal is simple. We are here to SHARE with you how to find, create and nourish WARM thoughtful spaces in your OWN home.
Wife, Mom of 4, homebody and tablescape lover.
Growing up, my mom had this little needlepoint that hung on our kitchen wall. It had a quote that has stayed with me and one that I think about so often as I’ve created this online space:
“To have a friend, Be one.”
As a realtor since 2005, I’ve been able to see many different homes & decor styles over the years and this has given me an even deeper perspective and real life examples of how intentional mindsets can truly bring any home to life.
On the personal side I love community and connection and my goal for this space beyond home decor, bad hair days and tablescapes is to make connections. I know that more than anything these days, people have a real desire to make genuine connections. So, grab a cozy blanket and a hot coffee and let’s get connected!
