About the Host, Sigurgeir Orri
When we bought the apartment, it was decorated as a late 70's early 80's law firm. We opted for the original 30's style, still visible behind thick layers of wallpaper, fake palisander boards and paint. It was sad to see the palisander go, there is something charming about it. Changing the law firm to an apartment was not difficult as it was originally built as an apartment and not business.
