Casey’s Living Life in his Luxurious Loft

Congrats to Casey Fritz for being featured as one of Apartment Therapy’s House Tours!  Blogger Jason Loper took some beautiful photos of Casey’s 620 square foot Minneapolis condo which he shares with Eric Sodemann.  With 14 foot high ceilings and an open floor plan, Casey and Eric created a space which is open and inviting, yet they maintain individual rooms using strategically placed furniture.  Using rich, bold colors, handmade burlap curtains and a mixture of old & new furniture, Casey & Eric took time to look at the details and make this space their own.  The result is a warm and cozy urban retreat.  Head on over to Apartment Therapy’s blog to view the entire story.  In the meantime, enjoy the snapshots below!
