Factors are really setting up to choose up steam in the apartment! I’m generally sharing authentic-time updates on Instagram but I required to publish some extra pics of the new headboard listed here because I really like it SO a lot. I’m so happy that Jen and I decided on working with Bowood for this piece. To say it is been reworked is an understatement. As you may possibly recall, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they available. I preferred it but was in no way more than the moon about it, and after a several decades it unquestionably experienced a few stains and was in require of a makeover. I briefly regarded as getting a unique headboard completely, or a bed (I genuinely wished a brass mattress!), but ultimately we made a decision that reupholstering this was the finest selection. I’m basically truly glad we have been able to reuse something I previously experienced – and seeing it in this new cloth has manufactured me recognize how a lot I basically like the condition and lines of it. Like, Enjoy!
We employed Jen’s upholsterer for this undertaking, and I know I’m a terrible blogger due to the fact this would be much much more intriguing or insightful for individuals if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or much more enjoyable if I’d observed it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate plenty of (or client sufficient) to obtain a piece like this secondhand! So we utilized a specialist and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just spectacular and very seriously makes the home. I have normally appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it’s even extra impactful and lovely in individual. Also preferred to note that I made use of Bowood Union, which is the version that’s a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Common Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a handful of colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/grey. I selected this since there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – eco-friendly/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The inexperienced/gray experienced a quite beige ground, and the white/leaf had a very white ground. It was challenging to make a decision for the reason that I liked the two in distinctive techniques – the beige floor had a really tea-colored, antique glimpse, but the white/leaf was very clean up on the lookout. The good news is there was a ideal alternative – Bowood Union in inexperienced/grey. It has a beige floor that is not AS beige as the other variation – so it is severely the ideal medium amongst the two. Perplexing, most likely! I felt it was crucial to do my investigate and see all of the coloration and cloth solutions in advance of deciding on, so I’m glad I did that.
I also wished to share how considerably I love my Sarah K. Models bedding! I observed it via (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even although figuring out British isles sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve usually just been entirely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no dilemma in my mind that I essential this cover and pillow established. It’s so pretty and charming. The hues, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a complete measurement mattress and I’m fairly positive I received the Uk King size. It suits perfectly and it is definitely smooth and at ease. (By the way, I genuinely want to exchange the drum shades – I’m wondering of undertaking a pleated environmentally friendly cloth!). It is essentially strange, I made use of to always uncover sleeping under my cover super unpleasant and it felt really hot and as well large with a linen quilt go over on it…but at any time because I switched to this a single, I have no issues and locate it really comfy. Was it the quilt address all this time that was the issue, not the quilt itself?! I honestly by no means suspected! Strange.
I just simply cannot imagine how substantially I appreciate Bowood! It’s these kinds of a excellent combine of experience variety of classic and antique, but also contemporary and lively. There’s very little fusty or fussy about it. It is type of a great fabric and I might go in advance and do curtains in it also, since it’s just so fantastic.
Lots extra updates that I need to photograph and share – many thanks for pursuing!
