Apartment with blend of retro and romance

Hello. My name is Susanne Benjaminsen and is behind the blog brick life.com.

My husband and I live on 115 square meters at Ila in Oslo, in an apartment that is quite unique. We struggled for 6 months to buy the apartment, it was actually sold to someone else, but in June 2011 it became ours!

We live in 3. and 4. floor with a converted loft giving us a number of square meters not many young couples in town have. With a mother who is furniture repairs and a father who is antique dealer, the apartment is full of treasures.

The apartment has original wood floors, large windows, high ceilings, two bathrooms and a converted loft that preserves the soul of the old building, with beautiful beams and beautiful brick, making it our dream home. It’s like a house in town.

Biedermeyersofaen, which stands at the dining table, has been bought from a barn in Sarpsborg. Susanne’s mother, who is a furniture lover, helped pull it around in Ralph Lauren fabric with green and natural white stripes.

The living room is furnished with a large comfortable sofa from Bohus and Ikea’s table in combination with various taxes.

The apartment, which runs over two floors, consists of the original apartment (3. floor) and a converted ceiling (4. story). An airy stairway connects the two floors together.

The bedroom is located on the converted ceiling and is furnished with romantic details.

The bare brick and beams give the apartment a distinctive touch.

Several of the details in the apartment take up the untreated tree from the beams.

With the development of the ceiling there was room for a large walk-in wardrobe right across the hall from the bedrooms.

The bathroom has an intimate atmosphere with beams and low ceilings. When Susanne dimmer the skylight, she gets the feeling of being at the spa.
