Besides the Pilates equipment, almost nothing in this small home is "new." Monika and Nicolas buy decor in flea markets, antique stores and second-hand markets. Or they find stuff in the streets. Or they even make furniture themselves — Nicolas made all the beds, all the furniture in their daughter's room, and the long shelf and desk in the studio. "We haven't spent more than $2000 for the whole apartment."
