Kristin & Greg’s Updated Art Nouveau Home
Name: Kristin & Greg
Location: Budapest, Hungary — District 2 across from Margit Island Park
We are two American expats — a landscape designer and an environmentalist/editor — living in Budapest with our kids and cats. Two years ago we bought an 1,800 square foot apartment in an art nouveau building. The place — which has 8-foot windows and 12-foot ceilings — hadn’t been touched in so long there was a woodburning water heater in the bathroom!
so we completely renovated it, restoring original hardwood floors, adding vivid colors to nearly every wall, and furnishing it with a combination of period furniture and various paintings/crafts collected on our travels. with the help of a municipal grant we also added a garden with antique fountain to the building’s common courtyard.
Thanks Kristin & Greg!
