A Charming Norwegian Apartment with Wooden Walls

When this Norwegian apartment was renovated in 2015, they recovered many historical elements such as the ceiling stucco, brick walls, and the late 19th-century wooden floor. The owners decided to put these elements on full display, sometimes in an unusual way, to create a charming home.

The 67 square meter apartment is located in the trendy Gr├╝nerlokka region of Oslo. The apartment was built in 1893, and it was renovated in 2015 and in 2022. The two-bedroom apartment features an open-plan living and dining space, a separate kitchen, and custom-built storage solutions.

Traditional Norwegian houses often have wooden walls, and in this apartment, they have created wooden feature walls that instantly add charm and a traditional historic feel to the spaces.

The decor is Scandinavian stylish; the carefully selected furniture pieces in white and black tones pair wonderfully with the original elements such as the wooden floor and walls.

The dining area also has a wooden wall, and from the looks of it, there may have been a door between the dining area and the bedroom behind the wall.

Here, you can also see the exposed stucco. The stucco was not complete but instead of removing it, the owners have decided to put the remainder of the stucco ceiling on display to show the history of the house.
