Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Issues are actually starting up to decide on up steam in the condominium! I’m generally sharing serious-time updates on Instagram but I desired to publish some a lot more pictures of the new headboard below simply because I appreciate it SO significantly. I’m so happy that Jen and I made a decision on employing Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been transformed is an understatement. As you may well remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they available. I preferred it but was by no means over the moon about it, and soon after a couple of a long time it certainly had a several stains and was in will need of a makeover. I briefly thought of finding a unique headboard entirely, or a mattress (I really wanted a brass mattress!), but in the long run we determined that reupholstering this was the ideal choice. I’m really actually glad we have been capable to reuse a thing I now had – and viewing it in this new fabric has made me realize how much I actually love the shape and strains of it. Like, Appreciate! 

We utilized Jen’s upholsterer for this job, and I know I’m a poor blogger because this would be substantially a lot more appealing or insightful for individuals if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or far more fascinating 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 used a skilled and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just beautiful and critically helps make the space. I have generally liked Bowood but I have to say, it’s even extra impactful and beautiful in man or woman. Also wanted to take note that I applied Bowood Union, which is the variation that’s a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Typical Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a couple colorways. My colorway is eco-friendly/grey. I chose this for the reason that there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – environmentally friendly/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink versions). The inexperienced/gray had a very beige floor, and the white/leaf experienced a really white floor. It was hard to choose mainly because I liked the two in unique approaches – the beige floor had a very tea-colored, antique search, but the white/leaf was incredibly clear seeking. Fortunately there was a great option – Bowood Union in environmentally friendly/grey. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other variation – so it is severely the excellent medium among the two. Bewildering, possibly! I felt it was significant to do my investigation and see all of the colour and material possibilities just before picking out, so I’m glad I did that. 

I also wished to share how significantly I adore my Sarah K. Patterns bedding! I located it via (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even while figuring out United kingdom sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve always just been entirely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no issue in my mind that I required this duvet and pillow set. It is so pretty and charming. The hues, the print, the ruffles…just ideal. I have a complete size mattress and I’m very certain I got the Uk King measurement. It fits completely and it is genuinely delicate and relaxed. (By the way, I really will need to replace the drum shades – I’m pondering of performing a pleated inexperienced fabric!). It’s basically bizarre, I made use of to normally obtain sleeping underneath my quilt tremendous not comfortable and it felt actually warm and much too major with a linen duvet cover on it…but ever since I switched to this one, I have no challenges and locate it genuinely comfortable. Was it the duvet cover all this time that was the issue, not the cover itself?! I honestly never suspected! Weird. 

I just can’t imagine how significantly I appreciate Bowood! It is such a great blend of experience sort of classic and antique, but also contemporary and energetic. There is absolutely nothing fusty or fussy about it. It’s form of a great material and I may possibly go in advance and do curtains in it way too, mainly because it is just so great. 


Heaps a lot more updates that I need to photograph and share – many thanks for subsequent!
