Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

4 min read

Points are definitely commencing to pick up steam in the apartment! I’m generally sharing genuine-time updates on Instagram but I desired to article some much more photos of the new headboard listed here simply because I like it SO a lot. I’m so happy that Jen and I decided on using Bowood for this piece. To say it is been reworked is an understatement. As you might don’t forget, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they supplied. I liked it but was never ever in excess of the moon about it, and following a several a long time it surely had a few stains and was in require of a makeover. I briefly viewed as acquiring a different headboard altogether, or a mattress (I truly desired a brass bed!), but in the long run we determined that reupholstering this was the best option. I’m truly truly happy we were being capable to reuse one thing I presently experienced – and looking at it in this new cloth has made me notice how a lot I essentially love the form and lines of it. Like, Really like! 

We utilised Jen’s upholsterer for this undertaking, and I know I’m a undesirable blogger for the reason that this would be a lot far more interesting or insightful for folks if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or much more exciting if I’d uncovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate sufficient (or affected person sufficient) to find a piece like this secondhand! So we used a qualified and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just breathtaking and very seriously helps make the space. I have usually liked Bowood but I have to say, it’s even more impactful and beautiful in man or woman. Also required to note that I applied Bowood Union, which is the model that’s a blend of cotton, nylon and linen. Typical Bowood is 100% cotton and comes in a few colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/grey. I selected this for the reason that there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – inexperienced/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The eco-friendly/grey had a pretty beige ground, and the white/leaf had a extremely white floor. It was tough to come to a decision due to the fact I liked both of those in unique means – the beige ground experienced a very tea-coloured, antique appear, but the white/leaf was pretty clean up on the lookout. Thankfully there was a perfect resolution – Bowood Union in environmentally friendly/gray. It has a beige floor which is not AS beige as the other variation – so it is significantly the best medium in between the two. Perplexing, most likely! I felt it was vital to do my analysis and see all of the shade and material choices right before deciding upon, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also preferred to share how significantly I really like my Sarah K. Layouts bedding! I discovered it as a result of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even however figuring out United kingdom sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have often just been wholly enamored with ditsy florals so there was no question in my mind that I necessary this cover and pillow set. It is so quite and charming. The colours, the print, the ruffles…just fantastic. I have a total sizing mattress and I’m very guaranteed I got the Uk King dimensions. It fits flawlessly and it is genuinely soft and relaxed. (By the way, I truly have to have to replace the drum shades – I’m pondering of executing a pleated green fabric!). It’s truly bizarre, I utilized to constantly obtain sleeping beneath my cover tremendous unpleasant and it felt really very hot and much too major with a linen cover go over on it…but ever because I switched to this one, I have no concerns and come across it definitely comfortable. Was it the cover address all this time that was the situation, not the quilt itself?! I honestly hardly ever suspected! Bizarre. 

I just can not believe how a lot I enjoy Bowood! It’s these types of a fantastic combine of feeling variety of classic and antique, but also clean and lively. There’s very little fusty or fussy about it. It’s form of a excellent fabric and I may possibly go forward and do curtains in it as well, mainly because it’s just so superior. 

 

Lots much more updates that I need to have to photograph and share – many thanks for pursuing!
