Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Things are definitely starting up to select up steam in the apartment! I’m always sharing real-time updates on Instagram but I required to write-up some additional pics of the new headboard in this article simply because I adore it SO significantly. I’m so glad that Jen and I resolved on making use of Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been reworked is an understatement. As you may possibly don’t forget, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they presented. I liked it but was in no way more than the moon about it, and just after a few many years it unquestionably experienced a handful of stains and was in will need of a makeover. I briefly considered having a various headboard completely, or a bed (I genuinely needed a brass bed!), but ultimately we made the decision that reupholstering this was the very best possibility. I’m basically really glad we were able to reuse a thing I now had – and observing it in this new fabric has created me notice how considerably I basically love the shape and lines of it. Like, Really like! 

We applied Jen’s upholsterer for this task, and I know I’m a undesirable blogger since this would be substantially additional attention-grabbing or educational for people if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or more remarkable if I’d observed it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky more than enough (or client plenty of) to come across a piece like this secondhand! So we applied a expert and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just gorgeous and significantly will make the home. I’ve generally appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it’s even a lot more impactful and gorgeous in person. Also wished to note that I used Bowood Union, which is the version that is a blend of cotton, nylon and linen. Frequent Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a number of colorways. My colorway is green/gray. I chose this mainly because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – inexperienced/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink versions). The environmentally friendly/grey experienced a pretty beige ground, and the white/leaf had a really white floor. It was challenging to come to a decision mainly because I favored each in diverse strategies – the beige floor experienced a very tea-coloured, antique look, but the white/leaf was pretty cleanse searching. Luckily for us there was a fantastic option – Bowood Union in inexperienced/gray. It has a beige floor that’s not AS beige as the other variation – so it is seriously the best medium involving the two. Complicated, most likely! I felt it was important to do my investigate and see all of the colour and fabric selections in advance of picking out, so I’m glad I did that. 

I also preferred to share how a great deal I appreciate my Sarah K. Types bedding! I located it by (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even while figuring out United kingdom sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve normally just been entirely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no problem in my head that I essential this duvet and pillow established. It’s so very and charming. The colors, the print, the ruffles…just perfect. I have a complete sizing bed and I’m really sure I bought the British isles King measurement. It fits beautifully and it is genuinely smooth and at ease. (By the way, I genuinely will need to switch the drum shades – I’m contemplating of performing a pleated green material!). It is in fact odd, I utilised to usually uncover sleeping below my quilt tremendous not comfortable and it felt definitely warm and way too significant with a linen cover address on it…but at any time because I switched to this a person, I have no problems and find it seriously cozy. Was it the duvet go over all this time that was the situation, not the duvet by itself?! I honestly under no circumstances suspected! Bizarre. 

I just can’t believe how substantially I appreciate Bowood! It’s this kind of a perfect mix of experience kind of classic and antique, but also clean and lively. There’s almost nothing fusty or fussy about it. It is sort of a great cloth and I could possibly go ahead and do curtains in it also, because it’s just so superior.
