Things are really setting up to select up steam in the apartment! I’m always sharing genuine-time updates on Instagram but I wished to publish some a lot more pics of the new headboard listed here due to the fact I enjoy it SO considerably. I’m so happy that Jen and I made a decision on making use of Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been transformed is an understatement. As you might bear in mind, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they available. I favored it but was by no means over the moon about it, and right after a couple decades it unquestionably experienced a couple stains and was in require of a makeover. I briefly regarded as getting a distinctive headboard entirely, or a bed (I truly required a brass bed!), but finally we resolved that reupholstering this was the very best possibility. I’m really really glad we had been ready to reuse a thing I already experienced – and seeing it in this new material has designed me realize how substantially I really really like the form and traces of it. Like, Enjoy!
We utilised Jen’s upholsterer for this undertaking, and I know I’m a undesirable blogger simply because this would be a great deal a lot more appealing or informative for people today if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or additional exciting if I’d found it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky adequate (or individual enough) to uncover a piece like this secondhand! So we applied a expert and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just stunning and critically helps make the place. I have generally preferred Bowood but I have to say, it is even additional impactful and lovely in person. Also required to be aware that I applied Bowood Union, which is the model that’s a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Regular Bowood is 100% cotton and will come in a number of colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/grey. I selected this since there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – environmentally friendly/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink versions). The environmentally friendly/grey experienced a quite beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a very white ground. It was difficult to make a decision for the reason that I liked both of those in different means – the beige ground experienced a fairly tea-colored, antique search, but the white/leaf was really clean up looking. The good news is there was a great option – Bowood Union in eco-friendly/gray. It has a beige floor that’s not AS beige as the other edition – so it is severely the great medium amongst the two. Baffling, most likely! I felt it was significant to do my study and see all of the colour and material selections right before picking out, so I’m happy I did that.
I also desired to share how substantially I appreciate my Sarah K. Designs bedding! I uncovered it by way of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even though figuring out United kingdom sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve constantly just been completely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no query in my intellect that I wanted this cover and pillow established. It is so pretty and charming. The shades, the print, the ruffles…just great. I have a comprehensive measurement mattress and I’m fairly positive I received the Uk King measurement. It fits flawlessly and it is genuinely delicate and comfortable. (By the way, I really require to exchange the drum shades – I’m thinking of executing a pleated eco-friendly fabric!). It’s actually weird, I applied to normally uncover sleeping less than my quilt tremendous uncomfortable and it felt truly hot and as well heavy with a linen quilt deal with on it…but at any time due to the fact I switched to this one particular, I have no issues and locate it really cozy. Was it the duvet protect all this time that was the issue, not the duvet alone?! I truthfully under no circumstances suspected! Strange.
I just can’t feel how considerably I adore Bowood! It is these kinds of a excellent combine of feeling type of classic and antique, but also refreshing and energetic. There’s nothing at all fusty or fussy about it. It’s variety of a fantastic material and I may possibly go ahead and do curtains in it as well, mainly because it is just so excellent.
Heaps extra updates that I have to have to photograph and share – thanks for following!
