Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding
Issues are genuinely commencing to decide on up steam in the apartment! I am always sharing serious-time updates on Instagram but I preferred to post some more pictures of the new headboard here for the reason that I love it SO substantially. I’m so glad that Jen and I made a decision on working with Bowood for this piece. To say it really is been reworked is an understatement. As you may possibly keep in mind, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they available. I appreciated it but was in no way in excess of the moon about it, and following a couple years it surely experienced a couple stains and was in will need of a makeover. I briefly viewed as getting a diverse headboard altogether, or a mattress (I truly required a brass mattress!), but eventually we made a decision that reupholstering this was the greatest option. I’m truly genuinely happy we had been capable to reuse anything I presently had – and observing it in this new material has made me notice how significantly I truly adore the form and strains of it. Like, Love!
We used Jen’s upholsterer for this project, and I know I am a negative blogger since this would be a lot far more fascinating or instructive for individuals if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or far more enjoyable if I’d located it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky sufficient (or client adequate) to come across a piece like this secondhand! So we utilized a qualified and I am thrilled with how it turned out. It is really just gorgeous and very seriously makes the home. I’ve generally favored Bowood, but I have to say, it truly is even far more impactful and stunning in individual. Also preferred to notice that I utilised Bowood Union, which is the model that’s a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Standard Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a couple colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/grey. I selected this since there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – green/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The eco-friendly/gray experienced a pretty beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a pretty white floor. It was really hard to come to a decision because I liked both in diverse approaches – the beige ground experienced a pretty tea-coloured, antique appear, but the white/leaf was pretty cleanse hunting. Luckily there was a fantastic alternative – Bowood Union in environmentally friendly/gray. It has a beige floor that’s not AS beige as the other version – so it truly is severely the great medium among the two. Perplexing, maybe! I felt it was essential to do my investigation and see all of the color and cloth selections in advance of choosing, so I’m happy I did that.
I also preferred to share how a lot I love my Sarah K Patterns bedding! I discovered it by (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even while figuring out British isles sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have generally just been completely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no issue in my head that I needed this duvet and pillow set. It’s so pretty and charming. The shades, the print, the ruffles…just ideal. I have a entire measurement bed and I’m fairly confident I bought the Uk King measurement. It matches properly and it is seriously delicate and at ease. (By the way, I genuinely have to have to exchange the drum shades – I am pondering of doing a pleated inexperienced material!). It is really actually odd, I applied to always discover sleeping less than my quilt tremendous uncomfortable and it felt really sizzling and also hefty with a linen cover cover on it…but at any time since I switched to this just one, I have no issues and uncover it seriously comfy. What it the duvet handles all this time that was the situation, not the quilt alone?! I honestly in no way suspected! strange.
I just can not consider how much I appreciate Bowood! It truly is this kind of a perfect combine of emotion sort of classic and antique, but also contemporary and lively. You can find very little fusty or fussy about it. It is really variety of a ideal material and I may well go in advance and do curtains in it much too, for the reason that it can be just so very good.
Loads more updates that I require to photograph and share – thanks for following!
