Items are genuinely beginning to pick up steam in the apartment! I’m often sharing authentic-time updates on Instagram but I wanted to put up some extra pics of the new headboard right here because I adore it SO considerably. I’m so glad that Jen and I decided on working with Bowood for this piece. To say it is been reworked is an understatement. As you may well recall, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they available. I favored it but was never above the moon about it, and after a handful of many years it absolutely experienced a few stains and was in will need of a makeover. I briefly regarded getting a distinctive headboard altogether, or a bed (I really preferred a brass bed!), but in the end we resolved that reupholstering this was the very best option. I’m essentially really happy we ended up in a position to reuse something I now experienced – and viewing it in this new fabric has manufactured me notice how a lot I actually enjoy the shape and lines of it. Like, Like!
We used Jen’s upholsterer for this job, and I know I’m a bad blogger because this would be a lot more fascinating or instructive for folks if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or much more interesting if I’d discovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not blessed sufficient (or patient enough) to come across a piece like this secondhand! So we used a experienced and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just stunning and severely will make the home. I have normally preferred Bowood but I have to say, it’s even a lot more impactful and stunning in particular person. Also wanted to observe that I utilized Bowood Union, which is the version which is a blend of cotton, nylon and linen. Common Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a handful of colorways. My colorway is green/grey. I chose this due to the fact there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – environmentally friendly/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink versions). The eco-friendly/gray experienced a extremely beige ground, and the white/leaf had a very white floor. It was difficult to make a decision mainly because I appreciated both in diverse methods – the beige ground experienced a fairly tea-colored, antique glance, but the white/leaf was quite cleanse on the lookout. The good thing is there was a excellent remedy – Bowood Union in environmentally friendly/gray. It has a beige floor which is not AS beige as the other edition – so it is very seriously the excellent medium amongst the two. Puzzling, maybe! I felt it was critical to do my study and see all of the shade and material options just before picking out, so I’m happy I did that.
I also wished to share how a great deal I like my Sarah K. Styles bedding! I found it by (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even however figuring out Uk sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve normally just been wholly enamored with ditsy florals so there was no query in my thoughts that I wanted this duvet and pillow set. It’s so rather and charming. The hues, the print, the ruffles…just excellent. I have a entire measurement mattress and I’m quite certain I got the Uk King size. It matches correctly and it’s definitely soft and comfy. (By the way, I definitely want to exchange the drum shades – I’m pondering of executing a pleated inexperienced fabric!). It’s basically bizarre, I employed to always discover sleeping below my quilt super awkward and it felt seriously scorching and way too significant with a linen duvet deal with on it…but ever since I switched to this a single, I have no issues and discover it really comfortable. Was it the cover protect all this time that was the problem, not the quilt itself?! I actually never suspected! Weird.
I just simply cannot feel how substantially I like Bowood! It’s these types of a ideal mix of feeling form of vintage and antique, but also new and energetic. There’s nothing fusty or fussy about it. It is variety of a best cloth and I could go forward and do curtains in it much too, for the reason that it’s just so fantastic.
A lot additional updates that I need to photograph and share – many thanks for following!
