Today we are welcoming Camilla Bromann to the blog to share her beautiful apartment with us!
"Our home is a small 68m2, 3 bedroom apartment located on the Danish island of Fyn in the city of Odense. The apartment has 3 rooms of the same size. These are used for our bedroom, living room and dining room/studio. On top of that, there's a good size kitchen and a tiny bathroom (Europe style). It took a long time to furnish our home. First we had to wait 3 months (3 MONTHS!) before our belongings arrived from Australia. So for that time, we really only had our bed and our dining table and chairs. It was very…minimalistic. But as the stuff arrived and I spent most weekends thrifting and exploring my parents' attic, our home slowly took shape. At the moment we are working overseas, and when we get home, I have so many new ideas (and items) to try out and incorporate. Our home is ever-changing and I like it like that."
"We moved into our Danish home in 2014 after having lived in Melbourne, Australia since 2008. First of all, we picked this apartment because it is located in my hometown that I hadn't lived in for 5 years. Massive homesickness now cured. Secondly, the apartment is so light and cozy with wooden floorboards and big white frame windows and a French door separating the living/dining area."
Thank you very much for the answer, Camilla 🙂 I actually live in Finland, so it is even much darker here than in Denmark in the winter time!
But I never thought about not being allowed to paint in rented accommodation would affect it as here painting is rarely limited. That would certainly limit people to neutral colours. My own walls are yellow, pale green and very bold print but then I own my apartment.
There are lots of lovely things in your home, ideas for whatever background 🙂
What a beautiful space. I really love the simple and clean Ikea hack for the buffet, and all the copper watering cans in various places. Very bright and beautiful.
Thank you so much Trayc. So lovely of you to comment 🙂
Thank you Anna! So nice of you 🙂
Thank you for your comment! Yes, it is a very Scandinavian thing with the white walls! I guess it is because we live in darkness for many months of the year (sun is literally only out from 10am-3pm in Denmark and further up north not even that long). So we embrace light as much as possible! Probably why we tend to paint everything bright white to reflect the small amounts of rays that hit our windows 🙂
Another thing could be the rental agreement. Most rented apartments are simply not allowed to be painted any other colour. -It is weird, but I guess it saves the landlords trying to cover up bright colours for the next person to move in.
But a big trend in Dk right now is to paint feature walls in fx dark navy, velvety emerald or subtle pastels. But I would say it is mostly people who legally own their homes that have that creative freedom 🙂 I hope this answers your question!
such a lovely space 🙂
Gotta love those pink sofas!! Great style.
I’m loving all the plants in this space!
the pink couches are the cutest!
This space is so refreshing and white!
I love your home! All of the personal touches, and great finds, this is what I would call a well curated home, and as you can see, it happens over time and not instantly. Thank you for sharing.
I really like your colourway. It’s so pleasant and honest.
Thank you MC!
They are all vintage, so keep an eye out at your local thrift stores!
I believe the coffee press is Bodum, but the mugs I have no idea..? I have seen them around a couple of times here so (unless they are a danish brand) I am sure you will run into them one day 🙂
Thank you! Yes, plants really make a home! I have also given all of them names, so it feels like we are a real family haha
Lovely items in the home 🙂 One thing I have often wondered, after seeing a number of Danish TV shows on interior decoration: do all Danish people paint their walls white?! So far I don’t remember a single home with coloured walls or patterned wallpaper. I like the style otherwise but the one things I would never use would be white walls in any part of a home.
Yes, the are TOTALLY from IKEA and they very so cheap! (too make it cheaper I bought the wood from the hardware shop and got them to cut the lenght for me).
Hi Elsie -Thank you so much! Yup, they are vintage! I found them at a local thrift market and literally paid $4 for a set of 6! The coffee press is a Bodum I believe.. But from an op-shop too. Maybe it is 80s?!
haha, yer my husband is not happy with the colour either, but you can’t deny the bright pop it brings to your home! I say DO IT! Make thise chairs pink and proud 😀
Thanks for your lovely comment.
Thank you for your kind comment Cat! I love the palette too which kind of happened by accident along the way 🙂
It’s amazing what white can do to a room! When we moved into our new condo, we repainted all the beige and red walls, and suddenly the space felt more airy and open. Love her style!!
