Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Factors are definitely starting to decide up steam in the condominium! I’m always sharing authentic-time updates on Instagram but I needed to post some far more pictures of the new headboard here since I appreciate it SO a great deal. I’m so happy that Jen and I made a decision on making use of Bowood for this piece. To say it is been remodeled is an understatement. As you might try to remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they available. I liked it but was hardly ever in excess of the moon about it, and immediately after a couple several years it certainly experienced a couple of stains and was in need to have of a makeover. I briefly regarded finding a distinct headboard entirely, or a mattress (I actually needed a brass mattress!), but in the end we resolved that reupholstering this was the most effective option. I’m truly actually glad we were ready to reuse anything I currently experienced – and viewing it in this new fabric has made me notice how a lot I basically appreciate the form and traces of it. Like, Really like! 

We utilized Jen’s upholsterer for this undertaking, and I know I’m a negative blogger simply because this would be substantially much more interesting or instructive for men and women if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or far more interesting if I’d identified it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky ample (or individual sufficient) to find a piece like this secondhand! So we applied a specialist and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just beautiful and severely helps make the space. I’ve always favored Bowood but I have to say, it’s even extra impactful and beautiful in individual. Also needed to note that I made use of Bowood Union, which is the edition that’s a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Typical Bowood is 100% cotton and will come in a several colorways. My colorway is inexperienced/gray. I chose 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 variations). The green/grey experienced a pretty beige floor, and the white/leaf experienced a really white floor. It was tough to decide for the reason that I liked both of those in diverse strategies – the beige floor had a fairly tea-colored, antique search, but the white/leaf was extremely clean wanting. Fortunately there was a fantastic answer – Bowood Union in eco-friendly/grey. It has a beige floor that is not AS beige as the other version – so it’s severely the fantastic medium concerning the two. Baffling, perhaps! I felt it was significant to do my study and see all of the colour and fabric alternatives before picking, so I’m glad I did that. 

I also preferred to share how substantially I appreciate my Sarah K. Patterns bedding! I identified it as a result of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even even though figuring out British isles sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have usually just been fully enamored with ditsy florals so there was no dilemma in my mind that I essential this quilt and pillow established. It is so very and charming. The shades, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a comprehensive dimensions bed and I’m really confident I got the United kingdom King sizing. It fits correctly and it’s actually comfortable and relaxed. (By the way, I really require to exchange the drum shades – I’m imagining of executing a pleated inexperienced cloth!). It’s really strange, I utilised to usually find sleeping less than my quilt super awkward and it felt truly incredibly hot and too weighty with a linen cover address on it…but at any time considering the fact that I switched to this 1, I have no challenges and obtain it seriously comfy. Was it the cover address all this time that was the issue, not the duvet by itself?! I honestly never ever suspected! Strange. 

I just can’t feel how substantially I love Bowood! It’s this sort of a perfect blend of emotion sort of vintage and antique, but also refreshing and lively. There’s almost nothing fusty or fussy about it. It’s sort of a ideal material and I could possibly go forward and do curtains in it far too, simply because it’s just so great. 


A lot additional updates that I want to photograph and share – many thanks for subsequent!
