Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Christine Lee

Factors are seriously beginning to select up steam in the condominium! I’m always sharing genuine-time updates on Instagram but I preferred to post some far more pics of the new headboard listed here since I love it SO significantly. I’m so happy that Jen and I determined on applying Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been transformed is an understatement. As you could try to remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they presented. I favored it but was by no means over the moon about it, and immediately after a handful of years it absolutely experienced a number of stains and was in need to have of a makeover. I briefly regarded obtaining a different headboard altogether, or a bed (I truly wanted a brass bed!), but in the end we made the decision that reupholstering this was the very best alternative. I’m in fact actually glad we ended up in a position to reuse anything I presently experienced – and seeing it in this new fabric has made me understand how a lot I in fact love the form and strains of it. Like, Really like! 

We utilized Jen’s upholsterer for this job, and I know I’m a terrible blogger since this would be considerably more exciting or informative for folks if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or far more fascinating if I’d found it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not blessed sufficient (or affected individual enough) to locate a piece like this secondhand! So we utilized a qualified and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just breathtaking and very seriously tends to make the space. I’ve usually appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it is even extra impactful and stunning in man or woman. Also wished to be aware that I applied Bowood Union, which is the edition which is a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Normal Bowood is 100% cotton and comes in a number of colorways. My colorway is green/gray. I chose this because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – green/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The inexperienced/grey had a quite beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a quite white ground. It was tough to come to a decision mainly because I preferred both in unique ways – the beige floor had a rather tea-coloured, antique seem, but the white/leaf was quite clean searching. The good news is there was a perfect solution – Bowood Union in inexperienced/gray. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other version – so it’s severely the best medium in between the two. Complicated, perhaps! I felt it was crucial to do my exploration and see all of the shade and fabric solutions before choosing, so I’m glad I did that. 

I also wished to share how significantly I enjoy my Sarah K. Patterns bedding! I located it through (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even although figuring out British isles sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve constantly just been totally enamored with ditsy florals so there was no query in my intellect that I essential this quilt and pillow set. It’s so fairly and charming. The colors, the print, the ruffles…just perfect. I have a full size mattress and I’m pretty confident I bought the Uk King dimensions. It matches properly and it is genuinely delicate and at ease. (By the way, I really require to exchange the drum shades – I’m thinking of accomplishing a pleated green material!). It’s truly strange, I utilized to often obtain sleeping less than my quilt super awkward and it felt definitely very hot and as well weighty with a linen quilt cover on it…but at any time considering the fact that I switched to this one, I have no issues and locate it actually comfy. Was it the duvet protect all this time that was the problem, not the cover itself?! I actually hardly ever suspected! Strange. 

I just just cannot imagine how a lot I really like Bowood! It is these kinds of a perfect mix of sensation variety of classic and antique, but also fresh and energetic. There is very little fusty or fussy about it. It is type of a ideal material and I may possibly go in advance and do curtains in it far too, because it’s just so fantastic. 

 

Tons additional updates that I have to have to photograph and share – thanks for subsequent!
