Issues are definitely commencing to pick up steam in the apartment! I’m always sharing true-time updates on Instagram but I wanted to put up some more photos of the new headboard in this article since I appreciate it SO a great deal. I’m so happy that Jen and I resolved on utilizing Bowood for this piece. To say it is been transformed is an understatement. As you may possibly recall, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they made available. I appreciated it but was never ever more than the moon about it, and following a several decades it certainly had a couple of stains and was in have to have of a makeover. I briefly thought of obtaining a various headboard entirely, or a bed (I seriously preferred a brass mattress!), but finally we made the decision that reupholstering this was the best alternative. I’m really truly happy we were being capable to reuse something I by now experienced – and seeing it in this new material has designed me understand how significantly I in fact appreciate the shape and lines of it. Like, Like!
We used Jen’s upholsterer for this task, and I know I’m a bad blogger for the reason that this would be substantially much more fascinating or useful for persons if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or more thrilling if I’d discovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky adequate (or client ample) to discover a piece like this secondhand! So we employed a experienced and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just breathtaking and significantly would make the space. I’ve normally liked Bowood but I have to say, it’s even far more impactful and lovely in individual. Also preferred to note that I made use of Bowood Union, which is the model which is a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Frequent Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a number of colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/grey. I chose this since there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – inexperienced/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The eco-friendly/gray experienced a extremely beige floor, and the white/leaf experienced a pretty white ground. It was hard to determine since I liked the two in diverse ways – the beige floor had a fairly tea-colored, antique search, but the white/leaf was incredibly cleanse hunting. Luckily for us there was a ideal answer – Bowood Union in green/gray. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other variation – so it’s severely the great medium involving the two. Perplexing, possibly! I felt it was essential to do my exploration and see all of the color and cloth solutions in advance of selecting, so I’m glad I did that.
I also wanted to share how significantly I appreciate my Sarah K. Layouts bedding! I observed it as a result of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even though figuring out United kingdom sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve constantly just been wholly enamored with ditsy florals so there was no problem in my head that I required this quilt and pillow set. It’s so fairly and charming. The colors, the print, the ruffles…just great. I have a complete measurement bed and I’m pretty certain I obtained the United kingdom King dimension. It fits beautifully and it’s truly soft and at ease. (By the way, I actually want to change the drum shades – I’m contemplating of executing a pleated green material!). It is in fact strange, I applied to always obtain sleeping less than my cover super not comfortable and it felt really hot and way too large with a linen quilt protect on it…but ever due to the fact I switched to this a person, I have no challenges and uncover it actually comfortable. Was it the cover go over all this time that was the issue, not the duvet alone?! I truthfully hardly ever suspected! Strange.
I just can’t believe that how significantly I like Bowood! It’s such a perfect mix of experience variety of vintage and antique, but also new and energetic. There’s practically nothing fusty or fussy about it. It is sort of a excellent fabric and I may well go ahead and do curtains in it too, since it is just so fantastic.
Lots extra updates that I require to photograph and share – thanks for pursuing!
