How Much For This Room?

This week’s How Much For This Room? takes us to a fab kitchen in San Francisco! This modern, graphic kitchen belongs to Christiana Coop who co-owns Hygge & West and ferm LIVING shop along with her business partner and best friend, Aimee Lagos. “We’re both recovering ex-lawyers and are extremely happy to be collaborating together on work we feel passionate about,” says Christiana.

Christiana has other business plans in the works as well, she’s soon to launch a new website with her interior design consulting partner, Rachel Eden for their interior design services in San Francisco. They have been working together for the past year on various interior design projects and their approach is low key and budget-friendly and to reflect their clients’ unique personality in their living spaces. So! Now that you know a little bit about this talented lady, how about we check out her kitchen and see how much money she had to spend to make it this nice!

Here’s the breakdown (does not include the appliances, flooring or cabinetry as this is a rental property):

1) 2 rolls of Amaze wallpaper in black/gray from Hygge & West $250 2) 1 Gallon paint, Balboa Mist, Benjamin Moore $65 3) Gehry Face Off Table $2,789 (for the record, the table belongs to her landlord but we’ll still include it into the total) 4) 2 vintage, refinished Bertoia chairs from Eden & Eden $500 5) Spazzio yellow fruit bowl Hygge & West $125 6) Candle $35 7) Small plant pot $20 8) IKEA Lack shelves $129 9) 2 ceramic guinea hens from Area $235 10) Cake stand and 3 pitchers by Linda Bloomfield Hygge & West $165 11) Butterfly plate, bowl and cups by Ivana Helsinki Hygge & West $250 12) Mister Rob tile $36 13) Nambe glass pitcher, ice bucket and wine holder from yearly warehouse sales in Santa Fe $180 14) 212 New York Skyline platter, dish and cereal bowls from Fishs Eddy $83 15) Sunburst clock $385 16) Chilewich rug $185 17) Cigar table lamp $362 18) Tea towels by Mateo Illasco $38 19) Turquoise vintage bird from estate sale $4 20) Gold plate set by Casey O’Connell Hygge & West $95 21) Kahler’s Storia tea set Hygge & West $500 22) Acrylic tray from CB2 $35 23) Rectangular plant pot from Area $30 24) 4 succulent plants $24 25) Vintage Stelton ash tray $50 26) Black record frame from CB2 $15 27) Vintage beverage cart from Eden & Eden $550 28) Vintage ice bucket $30 29) Pillar umbrella stand originally designed for Kanye West $300 30) 4 turquoise wine goblets: $128

TOTAL: $7,593 USD.

$ Saver Tip: If you want to duplicate this room for less you could go for a knock off table and replace the Gehry with a DOCKSTA from IKEA ($149) which would bring down the total to $4,903 USD.

Christiana will be back in April with her newly designed bedroom (so stay tuned) that she’s in the process of revamping and it will feature vintage wall lamps, pretty wallpaper (of course!) and a big tree – quite a fun space!

Would you like to show off a room in your home and give us a breakdown showing what you used and the total cost? If so, please email me one photo of your space and we’ll talk! :) holly AT decor8blog.com
