Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Things are actually setting up to decide on up steam in the apartment! I’m usually sharing real-time updates on Instagram but I wished to publish some a lot more photos of the new headboard listed here mainly because I enjoy it SO much. I’m so happy that Jen and I made the decision on utilizing Bowood for this piece. To say it is been remodeled is an understatement. As you might keep in mind, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they available. I preferred it but was hardly ever above the moon about it, and following a couple of several years it unquestionably had a several stains and was in need to have of a makeover. I briefly viewed as having a distinct headboard entirely, or a mattress (I seriously preferred a brass mattress!), but eventually we determined that reupholstering this was the greatest solution. I’m really truly glad we have been ready to reuse a thing I previously had – and observing it in this new fabric has produced me comprehend how a lot I actually love the form and traces of it. Like, Adore! 

We used Jen’s upholsterer for this project, and I know I’m a bad blogger simply because this would be significantly much more fascinating or instructive for individuals if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or far more exciting if I’d identified it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not blessed plenty of (or individual more than enough) to uncover a piece like this secondhand! So we used a skilled and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just breathtaking and very seriously helps make the area. I’ve usually appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it’s even a lot more impactful and beautiful in human being. Also preferred to notice that I used Bowood Union, which is the variation which is a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Typical Bowood is 100% cotton and comes in a handful of colorways. My colorway is inexperienced/grey. I chose this for the reason that there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – environmentally friendly/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The eco-friendly/grey experienced a really beige floor, and the white/leaf had a incredibly white ground. It was hard to decide because I liked both equally in different means – the beige ground experienced a quite tea-coloured, antique search, but the white/leaf was very clean up on the lookout. Luckily for us there was a great answer – Bowood Union in inexperienced/gray. It has a beige floor that is not AS beige as the other edition – so it’s seriously the best medium among the two. Perplexing, perhaps! I felt it was crucial to do my investigation and see all of the color and fabric selections just before picking, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also required to share how substantially I really like 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 little bit of a head-scratcher. I have generally just been totally enamored with ditsy florals so there was no question in my brain that I necessary this quilt and pillow set. It’s so rather and charming. The colors, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a entire dimension mattress and I’m rather confident I got the British isles King size. It matches properly and it is definitely tender and at ease. (By the way, I truly will need to switch the drum shades – I’m thinking of performing a pleated inexperienced fabric!). It’s really strange, I made use of to often uncover sleeping less than my duvet super unpleasant and it felt definitely hot and too hefty with a linen duvet go over on it…but at any time given that I switched to this one particular, I have no troubles and come across it actually comfy. Was it the cover go over all this time that was the situation, not the cover by itself?! I actually in no way suspected! Weird. 

I just simply cannot believe that how substantially I love Bowood! It’s these types of a best blend of emotion type of vintage and antique, but also new and energetic. There is nothing at all fusty or fussy about it. It is variety of a fantastic cloth and I may go in advance and do curtains in it too, due to the fact it’s just so superior.
