Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Points are seriously setting up to select up steam in the condominium! I’m always sharing genuine-time updates on Instagram but I desired to submit some much more photos of the new headboard here since I like it SO a great deal. I’m so glad that Jen and I made the decision on employing Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been transformed is an understatement. As you may remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they made available. I appreciated it but was hardly ever about the moon about it, and right after a couple of decades it absolutely had a couple of stains and was in require of a makeover. I briefly regarded having a diverse headboard entirely, or a bed (I seriously required a brass bed!), but in the end we determined that reupholstering this was the best choice. I’m basically definitely happy we were being in a position to reuse anything I currently had – and looking at it in this new material has manufactured me realize how a lot I really adore the condition and traces of it. Like, Appreciate! 

We made use of Jen’s upholsterer for this undertaking, and I know I’m a lousy blogger for the reason that this would be much additional exciting or enlightening for people if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or far more thrilling if I’d uncovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate plenty of (or affected individual enough) to find a piece like this secondhand! So we utilised a skilled and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just amazing and significantly tends to make the place. I have constantly appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it’s even more impactful and stunning in person. Also preferred to take note that I employed Bowood Union, which is the variation which is a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Regular Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a number of colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/grey. I chose 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 green/gray experienced a really beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a very white floor. It was challenging to come to a decision simply because I favored the two in diverse approaches – the beige floor had a quite tea-coloured, antique look, but the white/leaf was very clean hunting. Thankfully there was a best remedy – Bowood Union in environmentally friendly/gray. It has a beige floor that’s not AS beige as the other edition – so it is significantly the fantastic medium among the two. Perplexing, perhaps! I felt it was important to do my research and see all of the color and cloth solutions before deciding upon, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also wanted to share how a great deal I appreciate my Sarah K. Patterns bedding! I found it by way of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even however figuring out United kingdom sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have usually just been fully enamored with ditsy florals so there was no problem in my brain that I essential this duvet and pillow set. It’s so really and charming. The colours, the print, the ruffles…just excellent. I have a total measurement bed and I’m really guaranteed I received the United kingdom King dimension. It fits perfectly and it’s definitely comfortable and comfy. (By the way, I really will need to exchange the drum shades – I’m imagining of doing a pleated inexperienced material!). It is truly bizarre, I made use of to constantly discover sleeping underneath my duvet tremendous uncomfortable and it felt genuinely very hot and also hefty with a linen cover cover on it…but ever since I switched to this a person, I have no troubles and find it actually comfy. Was it the cover go over all this time that was the concern, not the duvet alone?! I actually never ever suspected! Weird. 

I just just can’t think how a great deal I adore Bowood! It is these types of a best mix of emotion form of classic and antique, but also refreshing and lively. There’s practically nothing fusty or fussy about it. It’s variety of a ideal material and I might go in advance and do curtains in it also, simply because it is just so fantastic. 


Plenty more updates that I will need to photograph and share – thanks for following!
