Points are genuinely beginning to select up steam in the apartment! I’m normally sharing true-time updates on Instagram but I wanted to write-up some additional pictures of the new headboard here because I really like it SO a great deal. I’m so glad that Jen and I decided on utilizing Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been remodeled is an understatement. As you might bear in mind, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they offered. I preferred it but was never above the moon about it, and immediately after a number of decades it undoubtedly had a few stains and was in want of a makeover. I briefly regarded receiving a various headboard entirely, or a mattress (I actually desired a brass bed!), but in the long run we made a decision that reupholstering this was the finest possibility. I’m in fact truly glad we were being able to reuse one thing I currently had – and looking at it in this new material has manufactured me notice how considerably I actually enjoy the form and lines of it. Like, Adore!
We utilised Jen’s upholsterer for this task, and I know I’m a bad blogger since this would be substantially a lot more fascinating or useful for persons if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or a lot more enjoyable if I’d identified it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky ample (or client ample) to come across a piece like this secondhand! So we made use of a professional and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just amazing and seriously would make the area. I have constantly favored Bowood but I have to say, it’s even much more impactful and lovely in individual. Also wanted to observe that I utilized Bowood Union, which is the variation which is a blend of cotton, nylon and linen. Frequent Bowood is 100% cotton and will come in a couple of colorways. My colorway is inexperienced/gray. I selected this for the reason that there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – inexperienced/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink versions). The eco-friendly/gray had a really beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a really white floor. It was tricky to decide since I favored the two in different ways – the beige ground experienced a pretty tea-colored, antique look, but the white/leaf was pretty cleanse looking. Luckily for us there was a ideal answer – Bowood Union in eco-friendly/gray. It has a beige floor that is not AS beige as the other version – so it’s critically the fantastic medium among the two. Bewildering, potentially! I felt it was vital to do my analysis and see all of the shade and material possibilities just before picking, so I’m happy I did that.
I also desired to share how a lot I adore my Sarah K. Models bedding! I observed it by (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even nevertheless figuring out British isles sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I have constantly just been completely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no dilemma in my intellect that I required this cover and pillow set. It’s so rather and charming. The shades, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a total size bed and I’m pretty certain I acquired the United kingdom King dimensions. It matches perfectly and it is really gentle and snug. (By the way, I truly will need to substitute the drum shades – I’m wondering of carrying out a pleated eco-friendly material!). It’s essentially unusual, I used to normally find sleeping beneath my quilt super unpleasant and it felt really hot and way too weighty with a linen duvet include on it…but at any time considering the fact that I switched to this 1, I have no concerns and discover it really cozy. Was it the duvet protect all this time that was the challenge, not the duvet itself?! I truthfully under no circumstances suspected! Strange.
I just cannot feel how a great deal I adore Bowood! It is this sort of a fantastic combine of sensation type of vintage and antique, but also clean and energetic. There’s very little fusty or fussy about it. It is form of a best cloth and I may possibly go forward and do curtains in it way too, because it is just so fantastic.
A lot a lot more updates that I will need to photograph and share – many thanks for pursuing!
