Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding


Things are genuinely setting up to decide on up steam in the condominium! I’m generally sharing real-time updates on Instagram but I wished to post some much more pictures of the new headboard listed here mainly because I appreciate it SO much. I’m so glad that Jen and I determined on employing Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been transformed is an understatement. As you may perhaps don’t forget, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they provided. I preferred it but was under no circumstances in excess of the moon about it, and soon after a few several years it absolutely experienced a number of stains and was in need to have of a makeover. I briefly regarded as having a various headboard altogether, or a mattress (I really desired a brass bed!), but eventually we made a decision that reupholstering this was the ideal option. I’m in fact seriously happy we ended up ready to reuse some thing I already had – and viewing it in this new material has produced me realize how a lot I really adore the shape and lines of it. Like, Appreciate! 

We utilised Jen’s upholsterer for this job, and I know I’m a terrible blogger due to the fact this would be much much more attention-grabbing or instructive for men and women if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or much more remarkable if I’d found it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not blessed adequate (or client ample) to uncover a piece like this secondhand! So we made use of a specialist and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just stunning and severely will make the area. I have constantly favored Bowood but I have to say, it is even much more impactful and lovely in individual. Also required to observe that I applied Bowood Union, which is the variation which is a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Regular Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a couple colorways. My colorway is green/grey. I chose this since there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – inexperienced/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The inexperienced/grey had a really beige ground, and the white/leaf had a very white ground. It was really hard to make your mind up for the reason that I preferred equally in unique ways – the beige floor experienced a really tea-coloured, antique appear, but the white/leaf was extremely thoroughly clean looking. The good news is there was a great answer – Bowood Union in green/gray. It has a beige ground that’s not AS beige as the other version – so it’s seriously the ideal medium concerning the two. Puzzling, maybe! I felt it was significant to do my exploration and see all of the shade and cloth possibilities before deciding upon, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also needed to share how considerably I adore my Sarah K. Types bedding! I found it as a result of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even nevertheless figuring out United kingdom sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have usually just been wholly enamored with ditsy florals so there was no dilemma in my thoughts that I desired this duvet and pillow set. It’s so very and charming. The hues, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a complete measurement bed and I’m very positive I got the British isles King dimensions. It matches properly and it is genuinely comfortable and cozy. (By the way, I truly will need to switch the drum shades – I’m considering of accomplishing a pleated inexperienced cloth!). It is essentially strange, I employed to often uncover sleeping below my duvet super awkward and it felt truly warm and much too large with a linen cover include on it…but at any time given that I switched to this 1, I have no issues and find it definitely cozy. Was it the quilt protect all this time that was the difficulty, not the duvet by itself?! I truthfully by no means suspected! Bizarre. 

I just cannot believe that how much I enjoy Bowood! It’s these types of a fantastic mix of experience type of classic and antique, but also refreshing and energetic. There is nothing fusty or fussy about it. It’s form of a great material and I might go ahead and do curtains in it as well, mainly because it’s just so fantastic.
