Name: Ildiko
Location: Budapest, Hungary

We have a small (37m2 = 398 square foot) one-room apartment in Budapest downtown that we’ve transformed into an Airbnb rental. We had really little money to do it so my husband Andras and I did as much as we could by ourselves.

Andras designed and built the cup holder coffee table.

And I painted the paintings (except the one above the television, that is by Sara Osgyanyi).

The furniture is partly from IKEA and many items are from electronic garage sales sites (like Craigslist in USA).

Thanks, Ildiko!
