Items are genuinely starting to select up steam in the apartment! I’m usually sharing true-time updates on Instagram but I preferred to publish some additional photos of the new headboard right here simply because I like it SO a great deal. I’m so happy that Jen and I resolved on using Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been reworked is an understatement. As you may possibly remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they provided. I preferred it but was by no means over the moon about it, and just after a number of yrs it definitely experienced a couple of stains and was in want of a makeover. I briefly considered obtaining a various headboard completely, or a bed (I really wanted a brass bed!), but finally we decided that reupholstering this was the greatest option. I’m basically definitely happy we had been equipped to reuse some thing I previously experienced – and looking at it in this new cloth has designed me recognize how a lot I basically adore the form and lines of it. Like, Really like!
We applied Jen’s upholsterer for this venture, and I know I’m a lousy blogger simply because this would be significantly more attention-grabbing or insightful for people today if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or more thrilling if I’d identified it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate ample (or affected individual ample) to come across a piece like this secondhand! So we utilised a skilled and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just spectacular and very seriously tends to make the room. I’ve constantly liked Bowood but I have to say, it’s even more impactful and wonderful in person. Also needed to note that I employed Bowood Union, which is the edition that’s a blend of cotton, nylon and linen. Frequent Bowood is 100% cotton and arrives in a couple of colorways. My colorway is eco-friendly/grey. I selected this mainly because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – environmentally friendly/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The eco-friendly/gray experienced a quite beige floor, and the white/leaf had a really white floor. It was really hard to make a decision since I appreciated each in diverse methods – the beige ground had a rather tea-colored, antique seem, but the white/leaf was really cleanse looking. The good thing is there was a great resolution – Bowood Union in environmentally friendly/grey. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other version – so it is severely the ideal medium among the two. Baffling, probably! I felt it was important to do my investigate and see all of the colour and material solutions right before selecting, so I’m happy I did that.
I also wanted to share how much I like my Sarah K. Models bedding! I located it as a result of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even however figuring out United kingdom sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I have usually just been fully enamored with ditsy florals so there was no issue in my head that I necessary this duvet and pillow established. It is so pretty and charming. The hues, the print, the ruffles…just fantastic. I have a comprehensive dimensions mattress and I’m quite certain I got the United kingdom King size. It suits beautifully and it is seriously delicate and at ease. (By the way, I actually need to have to swap the drum shades – I’m contemplating of doing a pleated green material!). It is actually weird, I made use of to normally discover sleeping underneath my quilt tremendous awkward and it felt definitely hot and also large with a linen cover include on it…but at any time considering the fact that I switched to this just one, I have no troubles and locate it definitely comfortable. Was it the duvet include all this time that was the difficulty, not the quilt itself?! I truthfully by no means suspected! Weird.
I just just can’t consider how substantially I really like Bowood! It is these types of a best combine of experience sort of classic and antique, but also new and energetic. There is nothing at all fusty or fussy about it. It’s sort of a best cloth and I may possibly go in advance and do curtains in it too, since it is just so fantastic.
Tons far more updates that I require to photograph and share – thanks for next!
