About

My name is Janet Hofstra. I was born and raised in The Netherlands and immigrated in 2009 with my husband and our three boys to Ontario, Canada. My working career was mostly as a left brainer. I worked over twenty years at a bank, and my first employed years in Canada were in an office setting as well.

My husband and I have done several extensive home renovations, and we enjoyed working together and figuring out the floor plans and doing the actual labour. When we finished our last home-reno, I kind of rolled into refinishing our furniture. They needed that well deserved make-over. I came to realize, that like writing my book, this was something I was very passionate about. Finding and (re)creating unique decor pieces soon became a fun and relaxing pastime.

In June 2017 it was time for me to give the right side of my brain a full time chance. I founded Kind Decor, a home based business offering beautiful stylish décor.

Exactly two years later, in July 2019, we decided to open up a STORE FRONT in the beautiful village of Point Edward. In this cozy store under the Bluewater Bridge we are able to share our passion with collections from Canadian and European design.

This e-store gives you a gist of the products you can find in our brick & mortar store.  Happy browsing! We hope you find that beautiful piece that speaks to you.

After all, every loving home reflects its unique homeowner.
