Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding


Points are actually beginning to choose up steam in the condominium! I’m often sharing true-time updates on Instagram but I wanted to put up some much more pics of the new headboard below for the reason that I appreciate it SO significantly. I’m so happy that Jen and I decided on working with Bowood for this piece. To say it is been remodeled is an understatement. As you could try to remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they made available. I favored it but was by no means about the moon about it, and right after a couple of several years it certainly had a several stains and was in require of a makeover. I briefly thought of having a distinct headboard altogether, or a mattress (I actually wished a brass mattress!), but eventually we decided that reupholstering this was the most effective possibility. I’m actually truly happy we were ready to reuse one thing I by now had – and seeing it in this new cloth has designed me realize how significantly I essentially really like the condition and lines of it. Like, Adore! 

We made use of Jen’s upholsterer for this task, and I know I’m a undesirable blogger for the reason that this would be significantly much more exciting or insightful for men and women if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or extra enjoyable if I’d observed it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not blessed enough (or affected person plenty of) to uncover a piece like this secondhand! So we applied a experienced and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just gorgeous and seriously would make the place. I have often appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it is even a lot more impactful and gorgeous in human being. Also wished to notice that I used Bowood Union, which is the edition which is a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Typical Bowood is 100% cotton and comes in a couple colorways. My colorway is green/grey. I selected this since there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – eco-friendly/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The inexperienced/grey had a really beige ground, and the white/leaf had a incredibly white ground. It was tricky to decide simply because I appreciated both in diverse ways – the beige ground had a rather tea-colored, antique glance, but the white/leaf was extremely clean hunting. Thankfully there was a fantastic remedy – Bowood Union in environmentally friendly/grey. It has a beige floor that’s not AS beige as the other variation – so it’s very seriously the ideal medium involving the two. Baffling, perhaps! I felt it was crucial to do my analysis and see all of the color and material options right before picking, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also wanted to share how a lot I enjoy my Sarah K. Styles bedding! I uncovered it via (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even though figuring out Uk sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have normally just been entirely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no dilemma in my head that I necessary this duvet and pillow set. It is so fairly and charming. The shades, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a total size bed and I’m rather confident I acquired the United kingdom King size. It fits correctly and it’s seriously smooth and comfy. (By the way, I genuinely want to swap the drum shades – I’m thinking of undertaking a pleated environmentally friendly cloth!). It is essentially strange, I made use of to normally find sleeping under my cover tremendous not comfortable and it felt definitely scorching and much too significant with a linen cover go over on it…but ever given that I switched to this a person, I have no problems and discover it definitely comfortable. Was it the cover go over all this time that was the challenge, not the duvet itself?! I truthfully never suspected! Strange. 

I just can’t believe that how a lot I adore Bowood! It is these types of a perfect blend of emotion form of classic and antique, but also new and energetic. There’s nothing at all fusty or fussy about it. It’s variety of a great fabric and I could possibly go in advance and do curtains in it also, because it is just so very good. 


Lots more updates that I require to photograph and share – many thanks for subsequent!
