We spoke to the Swedish Houzz Nordics editor-in-chief, Sara Norrman, and Houzz Denmark editor, Kasper Iversen. Here, they put lagom to one side and share their region’s best tips for life and home.Embrace homeynessContemporary Scandi homes may be typically minimal and all about pale colours and clean lines, but look more closely and you might see they’re also hemtrevliga (homey) and ombonade (snuggly). These two Swedish words sum up the enviable lived-in-ness of some of our favourite Scandi interiors. The trick is to create warmth with texture and materials rather than colourfully competing features or strong patterns. This inviting Swedish bedroom, mixing bare brick, wood, voile, crisp bed linen and soft throws – but all in muted hues – shows exactly how it’s done.Texture-rich tricks you can reach out and touch

In the bedroomWhat are they: Flame retardants are a group of chemicals that are added to manufactured materials such as plastic, textiles, surface finishes and coatings. Where you can find them: They can be found on anything from your new mattress or sofa to your DVD player or television. In particular, all mattresses, whether natural or synthetic foam, are legally required by law to be treated with flame retardants for product safety. Pesticides and crop sprays are also used most highly in the production of cotton. How you can neutralise them: Always allow a new mattress to air out for a few days before sleeping on it. When changing the sheets, allow the stripped mattress to sit bare with the windows open now and again. Alternatively, look for a natural latex mattress that specifies it uses wool as a natural retardant. These are more expensive but are a good alternative. If you can afford it, look for organic cotton sheets and bedding.

Ambitious option: Over-schedule each day of the holidays with outings, days away and shopping trips to get ready for the term ahead.Easier option: Schedule in some ‘do-nothing’ days where none of you leave the house. Staying in your pyjamas all day is perfectly acceptable, and so is eating breakfast and popcorn in bed.
