FOLK magazine is devoted to presenting a fresh and youthful interpretation of simple country lifestyles, while focusing on the stories that make America our collective home sweet home. This down to Earth magazine fills a unique niche in the shelter publication landscape: content is part lifestyle, part editorial, all heart.
The pages of FOLK are filled with abundant inspiration in photos, how-to articles, features, shared stories, and even beautiful advertisements. At FOLK, we strive to photograph real rooms, events, stores, shows, and landscapes… not stylized photo sets. Contributors include writers, columnists, photographers, designers, chefs, bloggers, and business owners from across the USA, Canada, and Internationally, giving the magazine a voice that is all-inclusive and wide in scope.
FOLK seeks to be the
definitive guide to living a new kind of simple country lifestyle for readers of many backgrounds, ages, and interests. Readers find their own photos, stories, and memory submissions within each issue, making them a vital component of living the FOLK life. The magazine reaches across the many representations of American Country style to unite our country, celebrating personal expression in our homes and lives. Featuring elements of decor from primitive and rustic to farm-fresh and industrial, with a nod to mid-century modernism and nostalgic kitsch, every style is FOLKstyle.
Each bi-monthly issue brings a fresh approach to lifestyle inspiration, including:
- Shopping and Collecting antique, vintage, handmade and artisan original wares
- Decorating and Entertaining while expressing personal style, not trends
- Gardening and Cooking with a focus on local markets and farms
- Home Remodeling and Restoration using reclaimed and repurposed materials
- Fashion that celebrates individual expression of vintage-inspired style
- Travel, exploration of nature and local attractions, and enjoying a shared history
- Support and Promotion of independent main street businesses, artisans, events, and shops
