Jumpstart Your Day: Lofty Goals in a 19th Century House

See how modern solutions blend well with classic touches

We have to admit—we’re big fans of clever and unexpected small space ideas (just click here for some definitive proof). Whether it’s a hidden loft on top of a closet or secret rooms concealed by doors—these solutions tickle our fancy and inspire us to come up with our own groundbreaking innovation. While we’re still working on that “big idea,” check out this unique loft bed that we spotted over at Living in a shoebox.

Another project by the genius Norwegian company Ett rom til, this inviting loft is situated over a dining nook. The challenge for the team was how to fit it in such a way that it doesn’t take up too much space and that it should still allow light to stream into the room. You’ll be surprised with how they achieved the perfect solution without interfering with the theme of the house.
