Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Points are definitely setting up to pick up steam in the condominium! I’m generally sharing real-time updates on Instagram but I wanted to put up some much more photos of the new headboard listed here due to the fact I love it SO considerably. I’m so glad that Jen and I resolved on utilizing 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 grey linen that they available. I preferred it but was hardly ever about the moon about it, and soon after a few a long time it absolutely experienced a few stains and was in require of a makeover. I briefly deemed obtaining a diverse headboard completely, or a mattress (I definitely wanted a brass mattress!), but finally we resolved that reupholstering this was the finest possibility. I’m in fact genuinely glad we have been capable to reuse a thing I by now had – and seeing it in this new material has created me know how substantially I actually really like the form and lines of it. Like, Like! 

We used Jen’s upholsterer for this task, and I know I’m a bad blogger since this would be a great deal additional exciting or educational for folks if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or far more fascinating if I’d observed it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate enough (or client enough) to locate a piece like this secondhand! So we utilised a skilled and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just breathtaking and significantly will make the area. I’ve usually favored Bowood but I have to say, it is even much more impactful and wonderful in person. Also required to note that I employed Bowood Union, which is the version that’s a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Frequent Bowood is 100% cotton and will come in a couple of colorways. My colorway is inexperienced/gray. I selected this simply because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – environmentally friendly/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The environmentally friendly/grey experienced a very beige ground, and the white/leaf had a very white ground. It was tough to determine mainly because I appreciated equally in unique approaches – the beige floor experienced a very tea-colored, antique look, but the white/leaf was pretty clear seeking. Luckily for us there was a excellent solution – Bowood Union in environmentally friendly/grey. It has a beige floor that is not AS beige as the other model – so it is critically the great medium between the two. Confusing, perhaps! I felt it was essential to do my research and see all of the shade and cloth alternatives ahead of deciding on, so I’m glad I did that. 

I also wished to share how substantially I adore my Sarah K. Styles bedding! I observed it through (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even however figuring out British isles sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve generally just been fully enamored with ditsy florals so there was no query in my thoughts that I needed this cover and pillow established. It is so really and charming. The shades, the print, the ruffles…just perfect. I have a complete dimension bed and I’m quite absolutely sure I bought the Uk King dimension. It matches flawlessly and it is actually tender and snug. (By the way, I really need to switch the drum shades – I’m pondering of accomplishing a pleated eco-friendly fabric!). It’s essentially unusual, I used to always locate sleeping less than my duvet tremendous uncomfortable and it felt actually warm and much too large with a linen cover include on it…but ever considering the fact that I switched to this a person, I have no difficulties and uncover it genuinely comfy. Was it the cover cover all this time that was the concern, not the cover by itself?! I actually never suspected! Strange. 

I just just can’t believe that how a great deal I like Bowood! It’s these kinds of a best combine of sensation type of vintage and antique, but also clean and lively. There’s almost nothing fusty or fussy about it. It’s form of a perfect material and I could possibly go forward and do curtains in it also, since it is just so good. 


A lot extra updates that I want to photograph and share – many thanks for subsequent!
