Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Items are truly beginning to choose up steam in the condominium! I’m constantly sharing actual-time updates on Instagram but I desired to put up some much more pics of the new headboard below mainly because I like it SO a lot. I’m so glad that Jen and I made the decision on applying Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been remodeled is an understatement. As you may perhaps try to remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they made available. I appreciated it but was never more than the moon about it, and right after a few decades it certainly experienced a handful of stains and was in will need of a makeover. I briefly viewed as acquiring a distinct headboard entirely, or a bed (I truly preferred a brass mattress!), but in the long run we determined that reupholstering this was the finest choice. I’m truly really glad we were equipped to reuse one thing I presently experienced – and looking at it in this new cloth has produced me know how substantially I really love the shape and lines of it. Like, Really like! 

We applied Jen’s upholsterer for this challenge, and I know I’m a undesirable blogger because this would be a lot additional intriguing or informative for people today if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or far more enjoyable if I’d uncovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate adequate (or affected person plenty of) to find a piece like this secondhand! So we made use of a expert and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just gorgeous and severely would make the space. I’ve always liked Bowood but I have to say, it is even a lot more impactful and beautiful in particular person. Also preferred to take note that I applied Bowood Union, which is the version that is a blend of cotton, nylon and linen. Typical Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a couple colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/grey. I chose this mainly because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – environmentally friendly/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The eco-friendly/grey had a really beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a extremely white floor. It was tough to make your mind up due to the fact I preferred both of those in diverse means – the beige ground experienced a rather tea-colored, antique search, but the white/leaf was pretty clear searching. The good thing is there was a ideal option – Bowood Union in inexperienced/grey. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other model – so it is seriously the perfect medium between the two. Confusing, probably! I felt it was important to do my study and see all of the shade and cloth choices before deciding on, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also desired to share how substantially I enjoy my Sarah K. Designs bedding! I discovered it as a result of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even while figuring out British isles sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve generally just been fully enamored with ditsy florals so there was no dilemma in my intellect that I wanted this quilt and pillow set. It’s so fairly and charming. The colours, the print, the ruffles…just great. I have a entire size bed and I’m really positive I bought the British isles King dimension. It matches beautifully and it’s seriously tender and cozy. (By the way, I seriously need to swap the drum shades – I’m considering of executing a pleated green fabric!). It’s in fact odd, I employed to generally uncover sleeping under my duvet tremendous not comfortable and it felt definitely hot and as well significant with a linen quilt cover on it…but ever because I switched to this a person, I have no challenges and obtain it really comfy. Was it the quilt cover all this time that was the difficulty, not the duvet by itself?! I truthfully in no way suspected! Bizarre. 

I just cannot believe that how a lot I like Bowood! It’s these types of a great mix of sensation sort of classic and antique, but also contemporary and lively. There’s practically nothing fusty or fussy about it. It’s variety of a ideal cloth and I may well go forward and do curtains in it as well, because it is just so very good. 


A lot a lot more updates that I have to have to photograph and share – thanks for next!
