Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Things are actually starting off to decide on up steam in the apartment! I’m often sharing serious-time updates on Instagram but I needed to post some far more pics of the new headboard listed here mainly because I adore it SO a lot. I’m so happy that Jen and I made a decision on employing Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been reworked is an understatement. As you may perhaps bear in mind, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they presented. I preferred it but was never ever more than the moon about it, and right after a couple of several years it unquestionably experienced a couple of stains and was in have to have of a makeover. I briefly thought of obtaining a different headboard completely, or a mattress (I truly desired a brass mattress!), but in the end we made the decision that reupholstering this was the greatest choice. I’m in fact truly happy we ended up capable to reuse anything I presently had – and seeing it in this new material has created me notice how a great deal I really enjoy the condition and lines of it. Like, Adore! 

We employed Jen’s upholsterer for this challenge, and I know I’m a negative blogger for the reason that this would be a great deal additional interesting or useful for people today if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or far more interesting if I’d located it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not blessed more than enough (or client sufficient) to find a piece like this secondhand! So we made use of a experienced and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just spectacular and severely tends to make the space. I’ve normally liked Bowood but I have to say, it is even extra impactful and gorgeous in person. Also needed to be aware that I utilized Bowood Union, which is the variation that is a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Common Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a couple of colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/gray. I chose this for the reason that there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – green/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The environmentally friendly/grey experienced a extremely beige floor, and the white/leaf had a incredibly white ground. It was difficult to choose for the reason that I preferred equally in unique ways – the beige floor experienced a fairly tea-colored, antique seem, but the white/leaf was pretty thoroughly clean wanting. The good thing is there was a best solution – Bowood Union in inexperienced/gray. It has a beige ground that’s not AS beige as the other variation – so it’s significantly the great medium concerning the two. Puzzling, possibly! I felt it was essential to do my investigate and see all of the colour and material solutions ahead of selecting, so I’m glad I did that. 

I also preferred to share how much I love my Sarah K. Styles bedding! I found it as a result of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even nevertheless figuring out Uk sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I have generally just been wholly enamored with ditsy florals so there was no query in my head that I desired this quilt and pillow set. It is so rather and charming. The colors, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a whole dimension mattress and I’m quite positive I got the United kingdom King sizing. It matches flawlessly and it’s definitely comfortable and comfy. (By the way, I really require to change the drum shades – I’m thinking of accomplishing a pleated inexperienced fabric!). It is actually bizarre, I applied to normally come across sleeping underneath my quilt super uncomfortable and it felt seriously warm and way too hefty with a linen duvet address on it…but ever given that I switched to this a single, I have no issues and uncover it genuinely cozy. Was it the quilt deal with all this time that was the challenge, not the cover by itself?! I actually never suspected! Weird. 

I just just cannot believe how significantly I adore Bowood! It is this kind of a excellent blend of sensation variety of vintage and antique, but also new and lively. There is very little fusty or fussy about it. It’s sort of a perfect fabric and I may possibly go ahead and do curtains in it too, simply because it is just so very good. 


Loads much more updates that I will need to photograph and share – thanks for next!
