Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Items are truly starting off to decide on up steam in the apartment! I’m normally sharing actual-time updates on Instagram but I wished to publish some extra pictures of the new headboard in this article since I enjoy it SO a lot. I’m so glad that Jen and I made a decision on employing Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been remodeled is an understatement. As you might try to remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they supplied. I favored it but was hardly ever above the moon about it, and immediately after a several yrs it unquestionably experienced a few stains and was in have to have of a makeover. I briefly considered getting a unique headboard altogether, or a bed (I actually desired a brass bed!), but in the end we decided that reupholstering this was the very best choice. I’m truly truly happy we had been equipped to reuse something I now experienced – and viewing it in this new fabric has made me comprehend how substantially I in fact really like the shape and lines of it. Like, Enjoy! 

We used Jen’s upholsterer for this undertaking, and I know I’m a poor blogger simply because this would be a great deal much more intriguing or enlightening for individuals if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or more exciting if I’d observed it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky sufficient (or individual enough) to discover a piece like this secondhand! So we made use of a professional and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just breathtaking and significantly tends to make the place. I have constantly appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it is even extra impactful and attractive in man or woman. Also preferred to observe that I made use of Bowood Union, which is the version that is a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Standard Bowood is 100% cotton and will come in a couple colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/grey. I chose this since there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – environmentally friendly/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink versions). The eco-friendly/gray had a pretty beige floor, and the white/leaf had a incredibly white ground. It was difficult to choose for the reason that I preferred each in unique ways – the beige floor experienced a quite tea-colored, antique glimpse, but the white/leaf was very cleanse looking. The good thing is there was a best alternative – Bowood Union in inexperienced/grey. It has a beige ground that’s not AS beige as the other version – so it is seriously the best medium in between the two. Confusing, potentially! I felt it was vital to do my investigation and see all of the coloration and material selections right before picking out, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also preferred to share how much I like my Sarah K. Models bedding! I uncovered it by way of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even though figuring out Uk sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve normally just been fully enamored with ditsy florals so there was no query in my brain that I wanted this quilt and pillow set. It is so quite and charming. The colors, the print, the ruffles…just great. I have a total dimensions bed and I’m really absolutely sure I acquired the Uk King size. It fits beautifully and it is seriously gentle and comfortable. (By the way, I seriously need to have to swap the drum shades – I’m contemplating of executing a pleated eco-friendly material!). It is truly strange, I utilized to generally obtain sleeping beneath my duvet super unpleasant and it felt actually scorching and far too weighty with a linen quilt address on it…but ever because I switched to this one particular, I have no troubles and discover it seriously comfy. Was it the duvet address all this time that was the concern, not the duvet alone?! I honestly hardly ever suspected! Strange. 

I just can’t consider how a lot I adore Bowood! It is these types of a fantastic mix of feeling kind of classic and antique, but also clean and energetic. There’s very little fusty or fussy about it. It is sort of a ideal fabric and I might go forward and do curtains in it also, since it is just so great. 


Loads a lot more updates that I have to have to photograph and share – thanks for subsequent!
