Thrive at home: Kristin Lagerqvist

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

Interior blogger, shop owner and inspiring person Kristin Lagerqvist @krickelin, is next up! Kristin is based in Varberg where she works and runs the fashion store FGL. 

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

I love our dining room table. Not because it’s a fancy stylish one though – I just love how useful it is. For all our meals, long and short ones – playing cards with the kids, to do creative stuff like paintings or Cheramics, my bookkeeping and so on…

How did it become yours?

We ordered it from a Swedish webshop but I guess we could have build the same at home, two concrete boards and a simple steel construction. I like how the surface gets more and more beautiful the more we spill wine and juice on it.

When do you feel your very best at home?

It’s when we’re together – a dance with my son in the kitchen, deep conversations with my husband over a cup of tea, in the bathtub… Alone with a book…

What do you want to recommend?

I want to recommend watching documentaries and going to music concerts. To celebrate the little things in every day life. We have this nice little tradition and that is that almost every Friday we buy oysters and sparkling wine – celebrating the weekend and some time off.
