What does your home mean to you?

When the children were younger, the home meant equal part stress and relaxation, as there was always a minor chaos at home. But now when they are older it feels like we adults have recaptured the home, which contributes to a greater peace at home. I love being at home now.

What do you love most about your home?

The space in the living room and kitchen which has a ceiling height of 4.5 meters and the fact that we have many windows in all directions. But most of all, it's what we fill the home with, and every spring evening when all the neighbors gather for a barbeque while the children play in the common garden.

How does a perfect Sunday morning look like? Do you have any bedtime routines?

In our family we like quiet weekend mornings, with a long breakfast that lasts until lunchtime. I usually bake scones, cut up fresh fruit and drink endless cups of tea. The best thing I know is going to bed a little earlier. I have just taken a long bath and put on a soft silk pajama, fluff up with extra pillows behind my back and dive into my thick hotel blanket and read a book or watch a series. Preferably with a cup of tea next to the bed.

What are your best interior design tips?

Lots of textiles, large rugs, many pillows in bed and mixing new with old.

What does it mean for you to live sustainably? What are your best tips for shopping sustainably?

All of life consists of compromises, and I would say that living sustainably is not letting laziness, desire and price control all one's choices without always making conscious choices where sustainability must weigh as heavily as all other parameters. Always check Blocket, Facebook Marketplace or the auction sites before you buy something new. Let the purchases take time, you may not find your dream sofa on the first try and need to set up searches and keep track of what comes up. Groups like Labels we love on Facebook are also great places to buy second-hand clothes.
