ABOUT

My name is Camilla Kvarsnes, originally from Fredrikstad, Norway, and is now living in Mandelieu (a small town next to Cannes) on the French Riviera.

I am a financial auditor and I worked for 4 years at Aker Brygge in Oslo before I found life had more to offer than accounting and career hunting.

In 2002, I moved to to Mandelieu to learn French, together with the man in my life, Bjørn.

It took a year before we could communicate in French at an acceptable level. Then it was to find a job ….

This time it was the creativity that won. In the spring of 2004 we opened the interior store “CamillaK”.

In August 2007, we became parents of twin boys while we expanded the store. We have been lucky with great years, both as parents and shop owners.

When “CamillaK” had been running for 14 years, it was time for new challenges. We closed the doors to the store in late September 2018, but you who enjoyed visiting us can still find tips on the products and lifestyle here on my blog.

I love interior design and I love to visit and experience new places where you can find good food, delicious wine and magic atmosphere. On this blog you will find news from the suppliers of CamillaK, travel tips from the French Riviera, Provence, Champagne, Paris, French and Italian Alps, Piedmont, Tuscany, Rome, Venice, New York etc, etc .. …

There will also be some wine tips, music tips and fashion tips.

Hope you and I will meet often here on my blog!
