Matters are actually starting off to decide on up steam in the apartment! I’m normally sharing genuine-time updates on Instagram but I desired to put up some more photos of the new headboard listed here simply because I like it SO much. I’m so happy that Jen and I resolved on employing Bowood for this piece. To say it is been reworked is an understatement. As you may perhaps recall, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they made available. I preferred it but was never over the moon about it, and following a few many years it certainly had a several stains and was in require of a makeover. I briefly regarded obtaining a distinctive headboard altogether, or a bed (I really preferred a brass bed!), but in the long run we made the decision that reupholstering this was the very best choice. I’m really genuinely glad we have been capable to reuse anything I currently had – and viewing it in this new material has built me know how a great deal I actually enjoy the shape and traces of it. Like, Love!
We employed Jen’s upholsterer for this challenge, and I know I’m a terrible blogger since this would be a great deal far more interesting or educational for men and women if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or more fascinating if I’d uncovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky adequate (or patient plenty of) to come across a piece like this secondhand! So we used a skilled and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just breathtaking and critically can make the room. I’ve often preferred Bowood but I have to say, it’s even a lot more impactful and attractive in person. Also required to observe that I utilised Bowood Union, which is the version that is a blend of cotton, nylon and linen. Normal Bowood is 100% cotton and comes in a number of colorways. My colorway is eco-friendly/gray. I chose this since there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – green/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink versions). The environmentally friendly/grey experienced a extremely beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a quite white floor. It was really hard to decide because I favored equally in diverse approaches – the beige floor had a pretty tea-coloured, antique search, but the white/leaf was quite cleanse wanting. The good news is there was a fantastic remedy – Bowood Union in inexperienced/grey. It has a beige floor which is not AS beige as the other version – so it’s significantly the excellent medium concerning the two. Bewildering, most likely! I felt it was important to do my analysis and see all of the color and material alternatives right before deciding on, so I’m glad I did that.
I also needed to share how much I appreciate my Sarah K. Types bedding! I found it through (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even even though figuring out United kingdom sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve often just been totally enamored with ditsy florals so there was no issue in my mind that I required this duvet and pillow set. It’s so quite and charming. The shades, the print, the ruffles…just excellent. I have a whole dimension mattress and I’m quite positive I acquired the United kingdom King sizing. It fits properly and it is truly tender and at ease. (By the way, I seriously want to substitute the drum shades – I’m pondering of doing a pleated green material!). It is actually bizarre, I employed to often find sleeping under my quilt super unpleasant and it felt truly very hot and far too large with a linen cover protect on it…but at any time considering the fact that I switched to this one particular, I have no challenges and uncover it truly comfortable. Was it the duvet address all this time that was the problem, not the quilt itself?! I actually never ever suspected! Weird.
I just can not believe that how a lot I appreciate Bowood! It is this sort of a excellent mix of feeling type of classic and antique, but also clean and lively. There is absolutely nothing fusty or fussy about it. It is variety of a fantastic cloth and I could go forward and do curtains in it much too, due to the fact it’s just so fantastic.
Heaps far more updates that I need to have to photograph and share – thanks for next!
