Thrive at home: Emelie Sundberg

In Betonggruvan’s mini interview series we explore what makes people thrive at home.

Today we meet photographer, stylist and founder of Inredningspodden, Emelie Sundberg, who lives with her family in a house in Stockholm. Follow her on @emelie.sundberg for more inspiration. Happy reading!

Hi Emelie!
What is your favourite item in your home and why is it so?

Hmm, I must say our sofas in the living room. It is a boring answer because they are not really special, but we spend an incredible amount of time there. They are so comfortable, accommodate many and are great to look at. I longed for this couch for several years before we finally got it.

How did it become yours?

My husband bought them for me for Christmas. They were pretty hard to wrap and put under the Christmas tree though, haha

When do you feel your very best at home?

Definitely when our home is freshly cleaned. I really don’t feel good when it is messy at home which is quite often because we are four messy people living here. But the feeling of a newly cleaned home beats everything! In the summer it will be late evenings on the terrace and in the winter we cozy up in front of the fireplace. And of course, I love having friends and family over!

What do you want to recommend?

Besides listening to my podcast Inredningspodden? Decorating your home is a never ending project an there is no need to hurry. Let it take time – and I mean TIME! It is SO boring to be done!

Don’t forget to listen to Emelie’s Inredningspodden. You’l find the interview with Betonggruvan’s Josefine Halfwordson here.
