Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Factors are really commencing to decide on up steam in the condominium! I’m often sharing actual-time updates on Instagram but I desired to publish some far more pictures of the new headboard here because I really like it SO substantially. I’m so happy that Jen and I made the decision on using Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been reworked is an understatement. As you could keep in mind, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they available. I liked it but was by no means above the moon about it, and just after a several a long time it undoubtedly had a couple of stains and was in need to have of a makeover. I briefly thought of acquiring a distinct headboard completely, or a mattress (I really required a brass bed!), but in the long run we resolved that reupholstering this was the ideal possibility. I’m truly seriously glad we had been able to reuse one thing I previously experienced – and observing it in this new material has created me understand how considerably I actually adore the condition and lines of it. Like, Enjoy! 

We applied Jen’s upholsterer for this venture, and I know I’m a undesirable blogger mainly because this would be significantly a lot more intriguing or educational for individuals if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or additional interesting if I’d discovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky plenty of (or affected person sufficient) to obtain a piece like this secondhand! So we employed a experienced and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just beautiful and critically can make the place. I have constantly liked Bowood but I have to say, it’s even extra impactful and lovely in human being. Also required to notice that I made use of Bowood Union, which is the version that’s a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Standard Bowood is 100% cotton and will come in a number of colorways. My colorway is green/gray. I selected this because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – green/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The inexperienced/grey experienced a incredibly beige floor, and the white/leaf had a very white ground. It was difficult to make your mind up simply because I favored both equally in diverse ways – the beige ground experienced a very tea-colored, antique seem, but the white/leaf was incredibly clear searching. Fortunately there was a ideal remedy – Bowood Union in eco-friendly/grey. It has a beige floor which is not AS beige as the other model – so it is critically the perfect medium involving the two. Perplexing, potentially! I felt it was crucial to do my investigation and see all of the shade and fabric options just before selecting, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also preferred to share how substantially I adore my Sarah K. Types bedding! I found it as a result of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even even though figuring out United kingdom sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have generally just been totally enamored with ditsy florals so there was no question in my thoughts that I required this cover and pillow established. It’s so rather and charming. The hues, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a whole size mattress and I’m fairly guaranteed I bought the British isles King sizing. It fits flawlessly and it’s genuinely tender and at ease. (By the way, I definitely need to have to exchange the drum shades – I’m pondering of performing a pleated environmentally friendly cloth!). It is actually weird, I made use of to normally find sleeping under my quilt tremendous awkward and it felt seriously hot and way too weighty with a linen quilt cover on it…but ever since I switched to this a person, I have no troubles and obtain it seriously comfy. Was it the quilt go over all this time that was the concern, not the quilt by itself?! I honestly by no means suspected! Weird. 

I just cannot feel how significantly I enjoy Bowood! It is these types of a great blend of feeling sort of vintage and antique, but also fresh new and energetic. There is almost nothing fusty or fussy about it. It is type of a perfect fabric and I may go ahead and do curtains in it too, because it is just so superior. 

 

A lot more updates that I need to photograph and share – thanks for pursuing!
