Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Points are actually starting to decide on up steam in the condominium! I’m generally sharing genuine-time updates on Instagram but I preferred to write-up some far more pics of the new headboard in this article for the reason that I like it SO much. I’m so glad that Jen and I made the decision on working with Bowood for this piece. To say it is been transformed is an understatement. As you may recall, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they offered. I preferred it but was never ever above the moon about it, and following a several yrs it certainly had a several stains and was in have to have of a makeover. I briefly considered having a unique headboard altogether, or a mattress (I actually desired a brass bed!), but ultimately we resolved that reupholstering this was the ideal option. I’m basically definitely glad we have been equipped to reuse anything I presently experienced – and observing it in this new cloth has made me realize how substantially I in fact really like the shape and lines of it. Like, Like! 

We made use of Jen’s upholsterer for this job, and I know I’m a bad blogger due to the fact this would be a lot extra fascinating or useful for individuals if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or more fascinating if I’d discovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate ample (or affected person plenty of) to come across a piece like this secondhand! So we employed a experienced and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just gorgeous and significantly will make the space. I have usually appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it’s even extra impactful and wonderful in person. Also needed to take note that I made use of Bowood Union, which is the variation that is a blend of cotton, nylon and linen. Normal Bowood is 100% cotton and comes in a handful of colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/grey. I selected this since there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – eco-friendly/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink versions). The eco-friendly/gray experienced a extremely beige ground, and the white/leaf had a very white floor. It was difficult to decide because I liked both equally in distinctive techniques – the beige floor had a very tea-colored, antique seem, but the white/leaf was incredibly clean up seeking. Fortunately there was a best option – Bowood Union in inexperienced/gray. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other variation – so it’s severely the perfect medium in between the two. Perplexing, possibly! I felt it was important to do my research and see all of the colour and material possibilities in advance of selecting, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also wished to share how considerably I love my Sarah K. Patterns bedding! I found it by (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even nevertheless figuring out Uk sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have usually just been absolutely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no query in my intellect that I needed this duvet and pillow set. It is so quite and charming. The hues, the print, the ruffles…just perfect. I have a whole dimensions bed and I’m pretty sure I got the United kingdom King size. It suits beautifully and it’s definitely delicate and at ease. (By the way, I really will need to substitute the drum shades – I’m contemplating of undertaking a pleated eco-friendly material!). It is in fact strange, I made use of to constantly discover sleeping under my duvet tremendous awkward and it felt genuinely scorching and too major with a linen cover protect on it…but at any time given that I switched to this one particular, I have no problems and come across it genuinely comfy. Was it the duvet address all this time that was the problem, not the duvet alone?! I truthfully never ever suspected! Weird. 

I just can’t think how a great deal I appreciate Bowood! It is these a fantastic combine of feeling kind of vintage and antique, but also contemporary and energetic. There is very little fusty or fussy about it. It is type of a ideal cloth and I could possibly go ahead and do curtains in it way too, for the reason that it’s just so good. 


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