Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Things are seriously commencing to decide on up steam in the condominium! I’m often sharing serious-time updates on Instagram but I wished to publish some extra pictures of the new headboard below simply because I love it SO a great deal. I’m so happy that Jen and I resolved on utilizing 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 supplied. I favored it but was never ever about the moon about it, and right after a couple of decades it definitely had a few stains and was in have to have of a makeover. I briefly viewed as acquiring a diverse headboard completely, or a mattress (I really wanted a brass mattress!), but in the end we resolved that reupholstering this was the greatest selection. I’m truly genuinely glad we had been in a position to reuse some thing I by now experienced – and looking at it in this new fabric has designed me comprehend how substantially I actually really like the condition and traces of it. Like, Enjoy! 

We utilised Jen’s upholsterer for this task, and I know I’m a bad blogger for the reason that this would be substantially far more fascinating or informative for men and women if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or additional exciting if I’d uncovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate adequate (or affected individual sufficient) to come across a piece like this secondhand! So we used a qualified and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just spectacular and seriously can make the room. I’ve often favored Bowood but I have to say, it is even a lot more impactful and beautiful in individual. Also required to note that I applied Bowood Union, which is the model that is a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Normal Bowood is 100% cotton and will come in a couple of colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/grey. I selected this because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – green/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The inexperienced/grey had a quite beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a extremely white floor. It was tough to decide simply because I liked each in distinct ways – the beige ground had a pretty tea-coloured, antique glimpse, but the white/leaf was incredibly thoroughly clean wanting. The good news is there was a great alternative – Bowood Union in green/grey. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other edition – so it’s very seriously the best medium in between the two. Perplexing, perhaps! I felt it was essential to do my research and see all of the colour and cloth options right before choosing, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also needed to share how considerably I like my Sarah K. Models bedding! I found it as a result of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even nevertheless figuring out British isles sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve always just been wholly enamored with ditsy florals so there was no question in my head that I desired this duvet and pillow set. It’s so very and charming. The colours, the print, the ruffles…just perfect. I have a total size bed and I’m really sure I received the British isles King dimensions. It suits properly and it’s definitely tender and snug. (By the way, I definitely require to switch the drum shades – I’m pondering of doing a pleated eco-friendly material!). It’s actually odd, I applied to always uncover sleeping underneath my duvet super not comfortable and it felt truly warm and much too significant with a linen duvet address on it…but ever considering the fact that I switched to this a person, I have no troubles and discover it truly comfortable. Was it the duvet protect all this time that was the issue, not the duvet itself?! I actually never ever suspected! Strange. 

I just can not believe how significantly I love Bowood! It’s this kind of a ideal blend of experience variety of classic and antique, but also refreshing and lively. There is absolutely nothing fusty or fussy about it. It’s sort of a best fabric and I could go forward and do curtains in it way too, because it is just so very good. 


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