Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Items are genuinely beginning to decide on up steam in the apartment! I’m always sharing true-time updates on Instagram but I wanted to publish some a lot more photos of the new headboard right here because I love it SO significantly. I’m so happy that Jen and I made the decision on applying Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been remodeled is an understatement. As you may possibly try to remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they supplied. I appreciated it but was by no means over the moon about it, and just after a couple of several years it absolutely experienced a couple of stains and was in have to have of a makeover. I briefly regarded having a diverse headboard altogether, or a mattress (I genuinely wished a brass mattress!), but in the long run we decided that reupholstering this was the finest possibility. I’m basically seriously glad we were being ready to reuse something I already experienced – and seeing it in this new fabric has made me understand how significantly I actually love the condition and lines of it. Like, Like! 

We utilised Jen’s upholsterer for this task, and I know I’m a poor blogger mainly because this would be considerably extra fascinating or insightful for people today if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or more interesting if I’d identified it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate more than enough (or patient plenty of) to discover a piece like this secondhand! So we employed a experienced and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just gorgeous and critically tends to make the room. I have always appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it’s even more impactful and lovely in particular person. Also wished to take note that I utilized Bowood Union, which is the variation that is a blend of cotton, nylon and linen. Standard Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a handful of colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/gray. I chose this mainly 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 green/gray had a pretty beige floor, and the white/leaf experienced a extremely white ground. It was difficult to choose mainly because I favored both equally in diverse ways – the beige floor experienced a very tea-coloured, antique seem, but the white/leaf was incredibly clear wanting. The good thing is there was a excellent alternative – Bowood Union in inexperienced/grey. It has a beige floor which is not AS beige as the other variation – so it’s seriously the perfect medium between the two. Complicated, probably! I felt it was essential to do my investigate and see all of the coloration and fabric choices prior to deciding on, so I’m glad I did that. 

I also wanted to share how substantially I love my Sarah K. Models bedding! I identified it by means of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even although figuring out Uk sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I have always just been absolutely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no question in my mind that I needed this duvet and pillow established. It is so quite and charming. The hues, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a complete measurement mattress and I’m quite guaranteed I acquired the United kingdom King size. It fits properly and it is definitely soft and comfy. (By the way, I actually require to replace the drum shades – I’m pondering of accomplishing a pleated green material!). It is actually bizarre, I used to often come across sleeping less than my quilt tremendous unpleasant and it felt truly scorching and also significant with a linen cover deal with on it…but ever given that I switched to this one particular, I have no issues and discover it really comfortable. Was it the cover address all this time that was the problem, not the duvet alone?! I actually never suspected! Strange. 

I just can’t feel how significantly I enjoy Bowood! It’s these kinds of a fantastic combine of emotion sort of classic and antique, but also fresh and energetic. There is absolutely nothing fusty or fussy about it. It’s kind of a best material and I could possibly go forward and do curtains in it too, mainly because it’s just so fantastic. 


Lots a lot more updates that I want to photograph and share – thanks for next!
