Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding


Things are definitely beginning to decide up steam in the condominium! I’m usually sharing true-time updates on Instagram but I preferred to write-up some much more pictures of the new headboard right here simply because I really like it SO considerably. I’m so glad that Jen and I resolved on using Bowood for this piece. To say it is been reworked is an understatement. As you may well don’t forget, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they supplied. I preferred it but was by no means in excess of the moon about it, and following a couple of many years it certainly had a few stains and was in have to have of a makeover. I briefly considered receiving a distinctive headboard entirely, or a mattress (I really desired a brass mattress!), but in the long run we made the decision that reupholstering this was the greatest alternative. I’m essentially truly happy we ended up able to reuse one thing I now experienced – and seeing it in this new material has created me understand how considerably I actually appreciate the form and lines of it. Like, Adore! 

We utilized Jen’s upholsterer for this project, and I know I’m a undesirable blogger simply because this would be considerably extra interesting or informative for men and women if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or much more remarkable if I’d located it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not blessed plenty of (or patient enough) to locate a piece like this secondhand! So we employed a specialist and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just amazing and critically can make the space. I have usually liked Bowood but I have to say, it’s even far more impactful and wonderful in person. Also wanted to take note that I used Bowood Union, which is the model which is a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Typical Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a number of colorways. My colorway is green/grey. I selected this simply because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – eco-friendly/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink versions). The eco-friendly/gray experienced a very beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a quite white ground. It was tough to determine due to the fact I favored both of those in distinct strategies – the beige ground experienced a rather tea-colored, antique search, but the white/leaf was quite clean up seeking. The good news is there was a best resolution – Bowood Union in environmentally friendly/gray. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other variation – so it’s very seriously the best medium concerning the two. Perplexing, possibly! I felt it was significant to do my investigate and see all of the color and cloth possibilities ahead of deciding upon, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also preferred to share how considerably I enjoy my Sarah K. Patterns bedding! I found it via (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even while figuring out British isles sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve usually just been wholly enamored with ditsy florals so there was no dilemma in my head that I necessary this duvet and pillow set. It’s so fairly and charming. The shades, the print, the ruffles…just ideal. I have a full sizing bed and I’m fairly confident I received the British isles King dimension. It matches perfectly and it’s seriously delicate and relaxed. (By the way, I truly require to substitute the drum shades – I’m contemplating of executing a pleated inexperienced cloth!). It is really weird, I used to usually come across sleeping under my cover tremendous not comfortable and it felt seriously scorching and way too significant with a linen quilt cover on it…but at any time considering that I switched to this 1, I have no difficulties and come across it actually comfortable. Was it the duvet cover all this time that was the situation, not the duvet itself?! I honestly under no circumstances suspected! Bizarre. 

I just just can’t consider how much I appreciate Bowood! It is this kind of a perfect combine of emotion type of vintage and antique, but also new and lively. There is absolutely nothing fusty or fussy about it. It is form of a ideal material and I could go ahead and do curtains in it much too, since it’s just so excellent. 


Heaps more updates that I need to have to photograph and share – many thanks for subsequent!
