A Beautiful Mess

At Home with Camilla Bromann

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."

"The kitchen is a blast. It is not super big but has everything we need including a view into our garden. When the warm season hits and the sun starts to shine, we fill the window with fresh herbs and plants and experiment with growing different sprouts and pineapples (THAT never worked). I also love the early 90s kitchen cupboards and mini-shelves above the stove that I have filled up with my favorite little vintage ceramics and op-shop glass jars for spices. And the same wall was the perfect size to hang our 3 exotic Queensland bamboo fruit baskets that were found in an op-shop in Australia."
"Another favorite item of mine is the Ice Cream poster in our dining room. It was given to my mum by the artist himself when she was helping out in his studio in '81. I like it because of the Miami vibes it brings to the space. I am sure it makes our plants greener and happier."
"Most of our home is filled with recycled items that we have either inherited or found op-shopping. The pink couches are from my childhood home, bought in the early 80s and made by the Danish designer Søren Lund. I have never been able to part with them as they remind me too much of all the sweet times we had as kids. So the couches are staying. Even though they are so worn down. I call it patina, and I hear it is pretty trendy. The dining table is another favorite of mine as it is a DIY. I sanded down what I thought was a 60s teak table because it was so dark brown, but was pleasantly surprised it was made from oak. I gave it a matte white lacquer top and kept the edges neutral."
Thanks so much, Camilla! You can visit Camilla and her husband's clothing company here and follow her on Instagram here. xo.
