Rearranging the apartment

June 18, 2016

Hello from Norway!

Today it has been a very productive day despite that we went to a party yesterday and we had a hangover light haha. The plan was to go to the city but we decided not to go. Actually we are a bit happy for our decision since we were able to do things in our apartment that we could not have done if we would have a hangover today.

Our old apartment was across the hall from where we live. We moved to our current apartment since our lovely neighbors decided to move to Oslo. We had a deal with them that we could take their apartment when they were going to move. We were a bit jealous of their lovely view when they were living here and now it is our chance to enjoy the view.



When we first moved in, we arranged the apartment according to what we thought was the best but after having lived in the apartment for a while we felt that it was time for a change. Today we decided spontaneously to rearrange our apartment and we are really happy about the result. We feel that we got more space. When you live in a small apartment the clue is to put the furnitures on the right place in order to get the optimal space. The apartment actually feels bigger after having rearranged it.

Before we had a bar table in front of the window and a drinks cabinet. We decided to move them to the living room instead. We never got the chance to utilize it and we believe that we will able to use it a lot more now.

Here you can see the lovely view that I wrote about above.



My boyfriend sitting at the bar table and watching some football. Actually he was watching Iceland earlier today and we are cheering for them. Iceland is a very smal country with a population of only 200 000. We think it is so cool that a country with a population similar to our city is in the Euro. Norway is not participating and we have a population of 5 million haha.






We have used our hall as an office since my boyfriend is an economist and needs a place to work. The shelf to the left used to be in the living room but we moved it to our office in order to get more place for books.

Below you see a picture of our apartment before we rearranged it. As you can see it is really dark outside and that is because it gets dark really early in Norway during winter time.

What do you think about our rearrangement?



This is me on my way home after the party at my neighbor’s place yesterday. I took the picture in the elevator hehe 🙂

    Looks like you’ve made the most of the space you have. I must try to do the same: we have a similar apartment, small and with a lovely sea view.

    You have used the area to arrange everything perfectly. I loved that office area. One can concentrate and work or read there. Very beautifully done. 🙂

    I really like your apartment! Even if it is not very big, it’s awesome. I don’t really like big apartments, they don’t feel like home. And your view is the best view in the world!
