Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Matters are really setting up to select up steam in the apartment! I’m always sharing serious-time updates on Instagram but I wanted to submit some extra pics of the new headboard below due to the fact I like it SO a great deal. I’m so glad that Jen and I determined on using Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been remodeled is an understatement. As you may possibly try to remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they presented. I liked it but was never above the moon about it, and soon after a couple a long time it definitely had a number of stains and was in need of a makeover. I briefly regarded receiving a different headboard altogether, or a bed (I definitely wished a brass bed!), but eventually we made the decision that reupholstering this was the most effective option. I’m essentially truly happy we were being able to reuse a thing I presently had – and seeing it in this new fabric has manufactured me know how significantly I actually enjoy the shape and traces of it. Like, Enjoy! 

We used Jen’s upholsterer for this undertaking, and I know I’m a lousy blogger due to the fact this would be a great deal a lot more attention-grabbing or insightful for individuals if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or additional remarkable if I’d discovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky enough (or patient plenty of) to uncover a piece like this secondhand! So we made use of a experienced and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just spectacular and very seriously would make the place. I’ve usually appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it is even much more impactful and lovely in man or woman. Also wished to be aware that I made use of Bowood Union, which is the edition that is a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Regular Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a couple of colorways. My colorway is green/gray. I selected this because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – eco-friendly/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The green/grey experienced a really beige ground, and the white/leaf had a quite white floor. It was difficult to make your mind up since I liked both of those in unique ways – the beige ground experienced a quite tea-colored, antique glance, but the white/leaf was very clean up hunting. Thankfully there was a ideal solution – Bowood Union in eco-friendly/gray. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other variation – so it’s very seriously the perfect medium among the two. Confusing, maybe! I felt it was significant to do my exploration and see all of the coloration and fabric selections in advance of picking out, so I’m glad I did that. 

I also required to share how significantly I really like my Sarah K. Models bedding! I observed it by means of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even even though figuring out Uk sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve usually just been fully enamored with ditsy florals so there was no dilemma in my mind that I needed this quilt and pillow established. It’s so rather and charming. The hues, the print, the ruffles…just excellent. I have a total dimension bed and I’m quite guaranteed I acquired the British isles King measurement. It matches flawlessly and it’s seriously tender and comfortable. (By the way, I definitely need to have to exchange the drum shades – I’m thinking of executing a pleated eco-friendly material!). It’s truly bizarre, I applied to often come across sleeping less than my cover super unpleasant and it felt definitely warm and much too hefty with a linen cover include on it…but at any time due to the fact I switched to this just one, I have no difficulties and find it actually cozy. Was it the quilt cover all this time that was the situation, not the duvet itself?! I actually never ever suspected! Strange. 

I just just can’t consider how a great deal I appreciate Bowood! It is these kinds of a fantastic mix of feeling type of vintage and antique, but also refreshing and lively. There’s practically nothing fusty or fussy about it. It’s variety of a fantastic cloth and I may well go ahead and do curtains in it also, simply because it’s just so very good. 


Lots far more updates that I have to have to photograph and share – thanks for next!
