Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Issues are truly beginning to decide on up steam in the condominium! I’m usually sharing true-time updates on Instagram but I wished to put up some extra pictures of the new headboard here mainly because I adore it SO substantially. I’m so glad 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 remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they available. I favored it but was never above the moon about it, and soon after a handful of decades it surely experienced a several stains and was in need to have of a makeover. I briefly regarded receiving a distinctive headboard entirely, or a bed (I genuinely preferred a brass bed!), but in the end we made the decision that reupholstering this was the ideal possibility. I’m essentially truly happy we were being capable to reuse something I previously had – and viewing it in this new cloth has designed me realize how significantly I really really like the condition and lines of it. Like, Like! 

We utilized Jen’s upholsterer for this project, and I know I’m a negative blogger for the reason that this would be much far more interesting or useful for men and women if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or far more remarkable if I’d observed it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate adequate (or patient plenty of) to come across a piece like this secondhand! So we employed a qualified and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just breathtaking and seriously tends to make the room. I have always favored Bowood but I have to say, it’s even additional impactful and gorgeous in person. Also required to notice that I utilised Bowood Union, which is the version which is a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Frequent Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a couple colorways. My colorway is inexperienced/gray. I selected this due to the fact there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – inexperienced/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink versions). The eco-friendly/grey experienced a quite beige ground, and the white/leaf had a incredibly white floor. It was difficult to make your mind up mainly because I appreciated equally in distinct ways – the beige floor had a fairly tea-colored, antique search, but the white/leaf was pretty thoroughly clean wanting. Luckily there was a best solution – Bowood Union in environmentally friendly/gray. It has a beige floor that is not AS beige as the other edition – so it’s severely the fantastic medium concerning the two. Bewildering, maybe! I felt it was important to do my investigation and see all of the shade and material possibilities right before picking out, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also required to share how considerably I adore my Sarah K. Models bedding! I located it by (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even while figuring out British isles sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have usually just been entirely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no concern in my brain that I essential this duvet and pillow established. It’s so rather and charming. The colors, the print, the ruffles…just excellent. I have a comprehensive size mattress and I’m rather absolutely sure I acquired the British isles King sizing. It fits perfectly and it’s really delicate and at ease. (By the way, I really need to have to substitute the drum shades – I’m imagining of doing a pleated green fabric!). It’s in fact bizarre, I utilized to always locate sleeping below my duvet tremendous not comfortable and it felt truly incredibly hot and far too significant with a linen quilt cover on it…but at any time considering that I switched to this 1, I have no troubles and locate it definitely cozy. Was it the quilt include all this time that was the problem, not the quilt by itself?! I actually under no circumstances suspected! Strange. 

I just simply cannot believe that how significantly I enjoy Bowood! It’s this kind of a great blend of experience sort of vintage and antique, but also fresh new and energetic. There is nothing at all fusty or fussy about it. It is kind of a ideal fabric and I may possibly go ahead and do curtains in it much too, due to the fact it’s just so superior.
