Matters are really starting up to select up steam in the apartment! I’m always sharing serious-time updates on Instagram but I required to article some extra pictures of the new headboard here simply because I adore it SO considerably. I’m so happy that Jen and I resolved on employing Bowood for this piece. To say it is been remodeled is an understatement. As you may perhaps don’t forget, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they presented. I favored it but was never over the moon about it, and following a couple decades it unquestionably experienced a couple of stains and was in have to have of a makeover. I briefly thought of having a distinct headboard completely, or a mattress (I really needed a brass mattress!), but eventually we determined that reupholstering this was the very best solution. I’m truly seriously happy we had been able to reuse a little something I already had – and seeing it in this new cloth has designed me notice how significantly I basically love the condition and strains of it. Like, Like!
We used Jen’s upholsterer for this undertaking, and I know I’m a poor blogger for the reason that this would be considerably a lot more attention-grabbing or enlightening for folks if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or far more fascinating if I’d uncovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky ample (or affected person enough) to discover a piece like this secondhand! So we utilised a qualified and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just amazing and very seriously helps make the room. I’ve generally favored Bowood but I have to say, it’s even more impactful and wonderful in person. Also wished to take note that I employed Bowood Union, which is the version that’s a blend of cotton, nylon and linen. Normal Bowood is 100% cotton and will come in a number of colorways. My colorway is inexperienced/gray. I chose this for the reason that there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – inexperienced/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The green/grey experienced a quite beige ground, and the white/leaf had a extremely white floor. It was hard to come to a decision since I appreciated both of those in distinctive means – the beige floor had a pretty tea-colored, antique glimpse, but the white/leaf was pretty clean seeking. Fortunately there was a fantastic option – Bowood Union in inexperienced/gray. It has a beige floor that’s not AS beige as the other version – so it is very seriously the excellent medium amongst the two. Confusing, possibly! I felt it was important to do my analysis and see all of the color and fabric alternatives ahead of selecting, so I’m happy I did that.
I also wanted to share how a lot I appreciate my Sarah K. Models bedding! I located it by way of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even while figuring out United kingdom sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have usually just been wholly enamored with ditsy florals so there was no question in my mind that I necessary this cover and pillow set. It is so pretty and charming. The colours, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a full sizing mattress and I’m really positive I got the British isles King dimension. It matches completely and it is genuinely tender and snug. (By the way, I truly need to have to change the drum shades – I’m considering of doing a pleated green fabric!). It is actually bizarre, I utilized to generally discover sleeping under my duvet tremendous unpleasant and it felt definitely hot and too weighty with a linen cover go over on it…but ever given that I switched to this one, I have no issues and discover it actually comfortable. Was it the duvet address all this time that was the situation, not the quilt by itself?! I truthfully never suspected! Strange.
I just just can’t think how a lot I adore Bowood! It’s these a excellent combine of sensation form of vintage and antique, but also refreshing and lively. There’s practically nothing fusty or fussy about it. It’s sort of a ideal material and I may well go ahead and do curtains in it too, due to the fact it’s just so fantastic.
Plenty far more updates that I have to have to photograph and share – thanks for adhering to!
