A revisit from the Past: Milla Boutique

I'm sure most of you remember these images Camilla Berntsen took especially for Scandinavian Chic a while back. Due to some issues, the post has been "offline" for a few months, but we love them so much we HAD to share them again!

In this series we’re introducing you to the homes of the fabulous guys and gals behind the über chic blogs on our blog roll. (left)

The next blogger we’re featuring, is a long time favorite of mine. Camilla is just one of those people that has a design aesthetic that completely makes me rethink my own and want to change EVERYTHING.

I really appreciate her taking time out of her busy schedule (styling jobs, design projects, the store and of course all the magazines that are constantly returning to her to give their readers a little part of “Milla”). The photos she’s shared with us are styled differently than what we’ve seen before, and have been taken for Scandinavian Chic. (yay!)

Her style may not seem Scandinavian, but her interpretation and color scheme most definitely is..


Who: Camilla Berntsen

What: Founder and part-owner of the concept store Milla Boutique and the blog, Millablogg.

Blogs about: Music, art, photography, interiors, design, fashion & everyday life at Milla Boutique.

<The bedroom looks completely different from the last time I blogged about it, LOVED it before, and LOVE it now. The Kate Moss photo and the vintage gilded frames are perfection!>

SC: Describe your style in four words!
CB: Funky, Glamorous, Ethnic & Vintage.

<This home is all about the details.. Skulls, gold and interesting light fixtures>

SC: What’s your favorite store?
CB: Favorite store in Oslo: Voga. In Paris: L’Eclaireur on Rue Herold.

<Camilla has perfected the combination of gold and silver that I’m so stuck on these days.  The gold tap is looking so chic next to the silver frame and voluspa candle>

SC: What item in your house do you treasure the most?
CB: A white handmade lamp made of plaster which I bought in Paris some years ago. And of course my two Ragdoll cats who are a part of my interior!! Ha, ha!

<The little niche with candles, jewelry and much much more is such a touch of interest>

SC: How do you incorporate Scandinavian design in your home and/or wardrobe?
CB: I don’t have a lot of Scandinavian design in my house, but I have a couple of Verner Phanton chairs that I love! There’s something about the organic feeling and the sculptural way they’re made..

And I only have a light color palette, with different shades of white, grey, beige, brown and some items in black. And a lot of silver & gold. I’m addicted to it!!

When it comes to clothes, I’m a huge fan of  Swedish design brands as Acne & Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair. A lot of my clothes in my wardrobe are from these two brands... And the Norwegian jewelry designer Bjørg.

<The bathroom and bedroom are “open planned”. This is the view from the bed> 

SC: What’s your latest purchase?
My latest purchase is a pair of snakeskin tights from Filippa K.

<You can never have too many shoes ;)>

SC: What’s your favorite Scandinavian Design Classic?
CB: I love the glass lamp "Vintage" from the Danish company Design by Us. Maybe not yet a classic- but I know it will be some day!


SC: Favorite Scandinavian Magazines?
CB: Can’t help it- I´m a big fan of Elle Interior. In all the Scandinavian countries...  (NorwaySweden)


SC: Best décor / style / beauty advise?
Be true to your style, no matter what the trends are!

When it comes to interior, keep to few colours and play with different styles instead. Add some shiny silver & gold to make it glamorous.

Keep it interesting with surprising elements and have fun with it! Buy things you can appreciate and keep for many years!

VERY cool, and very different from what I normally see. Such a personal home, thanks for sharing!
I especially love the rustic bathroom, I could imagine the room in an old farm house in southern Europe....
