Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding


Issues are really setting up to decide up steam in the apartment! I’m normally sharing serious-time updates on Instagram but I desired to publish some extra photos of the new headboard right here for the reason that I really like it SO substantially. 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 may recall, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they made available. I favored it but was hardly ever around the moon about it, and just after a number of yrs it undoubtedly experienced a number of stains and was in will need of a makeover. I briefly deemed obtaining a different headboard entirely, or a mattress (I really required a brass mattress!), but in the end we determined that reupholstering this was the very best possibility. I’m basically genuinely happy we had been equipped to reuse something I by now had – and seeing it in this new material has built me notice how significantly I essentially enjoy the form and traces of it. Like, Love! 

We made use of Jen’s upholsterer for this project, and I know I’m a terrible blogger for the reason that this would be much more intriguing or informative for men and women if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or far more interesting if I’d found it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate ample (or affected person ample) to uncover a piece like this secondhand! So we made use of a qualified and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just stunning and seriously would make the home. I’ve normally appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it is even a lot more impactful and attractive in human being. Also desired to notice that I utilized Bowood Union, which is the edition that is a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Typical Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a few colorways. My colorway is eco-friendly/grey. I selected this because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – inexperienced/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink versions). The green/grey experienced a pretty beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a extremely white floor. It was tricky to make a decision for the reason that I liked both of those in distinctive means – the beige ground had a really tea-colored, antique appear, but the white/leaf was very clean searching. The good news is there was a excellent option – Bowood Union in green/gray. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other model – so it’s seriously the best medium amongst the two. Baffling, possibly! I felt it was crucial to do my exploration and see all of the shade and cloth possibilities prior to deciding on, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also needed to share how a lot I love my Sarah K. Models bedding! I located it by means of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even although figuring out United kingdom sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve usually just been wholly enamored with ditsy florals so there was no issue in my intellect that I essential this quilt and pillow established. It is so pretty and charming. The shades, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a entire size mattress and I’m quite absolutely sure I received the British isles King measurement. It fits completely and it is really soft and comfortable. (By the way, I really need to have to exchange the drum shades – I’m thinking of carrying out a pleated eco-friendly cloth!). It is essentially weird, I employed to always obtain sleeping beneath my duvet super not comfortable and it felt definitely scorching and much too large with a linen duvet protect on it…but at any time since I switched to this one particular, I have no troubles and obtain it actually comfy. Was it the duvet protect all this time that was the problem, not the quilt by itself?! I actually never suspected! Strange. 

I just cannot imagine how substantially I appreciate Bowood! It’s these a best mix of sensation form of vintage and antique, but also contemporary and lively. There is very little fusty or fussy about it. It’s sort of a fantastic cloth and I may go in advance and do curtains in it too, simply because it is just so superior. 


Loads far more updates that I have to have to photograph and share – many thanks for next!
