Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Condominium Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Layouts Bedding

Items are really starting to select up steam in the apartment! I’m constantly sharing real-time updates on Instagram but I wished to submit some extra photos of the new headboard in this article simply because I love it SO a lot. I’m so glad that Jen and I resolved on working with Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been reworked is an understatement. As you may well remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they supplied. I favored it but was under no circumstances above the moon about it, and soon after a handful of many years it definitely had a couple of stains and was in require of a makeover. I briefly thought of acquiring a diverse headboard altogether, or a bed (I genuinely required a brass mattress!), but in the long run we resolved that reupholstering this was the most effective selection. I’m basically genuinely glad we had been ready to reuse something I currently had – and observing it in this new material has designed me comprehend how significantly I actually love the shape and lines of it. Like, Appreciate! 

We applied Jen’s upholsterer for this project, and I know I’m a bad blogger simply because this would be a great deal additional fascinating or educational for people if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or far more thrilling if I’d identified it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not blessed adequate (or affected person enough) to obtain a piece like this secondhand! So we employed a professional and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just amazing and critically will make the area. I have generally appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it’s even a lot more impactful and attractive in particular person. Also required to take note that I employed Bowood Union, which is the edition which is a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Normal Bowood is 100% cotton and comes in a number of colorways. My colorway is inexperienced/gray. 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/gray had a really beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a quite white ground. It was hard to decide because I liked both equally in unique ways – the beige ground experienced a rather tea-coloured, antique glance, but the white/leaf was incredibly clear seeking. The good thing is there was a great alternative – Bowood Union in green/grey. It has a beige ground which is not AS beige as the other edition – so it’s critically the great medium amongst the two. Complicated, potentially! I felt it was essential to do my study and see all of the colour and fabric possibilities before deciding upon, so I’m glad I did that. 

I also needed to share how substantially I appreciate my Sarah K. Models bedding! I located it by way of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even although figuring out Uk sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve constantly just been completely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no dilemma in my thoughts that I desired this duvet and pillow set. It is so quite and charming. The colours, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a full sizing bed and I’m rather confident I bought the British isles King dimensions. It suits properly and it is definitely gentle and cozy. (By the way, I genuinely need to switch the drum shades – I’m imagining of doing a pleated green cloth!). It is basically bizarre, I made use of to generally obtain sleeping beneath my cover super not comfortable and it felt actually incredibly hot and as well large with a linen duvet go over on it…but at any time considering that I switched to this one, I have no challenges and obtain it definitely cozy. Was it the cover include all this time that was the issue, not the duvet by itself?! I honestly by no means suspected! Weird. 

I just can’t consider how a lot I like Bowood! It’s these types of a fantastic combine of sensation sort of vintage and antique, but also fresh and lively. There’s nothing at all fusty or fussy about it. It is form of a perfect material and I might go forward and do curtains in it much too, for the reason that it’s just so good. 


A lot a lot more updates that I want to photograph and share – thanks for pursuing!
