Items are definitely beginning to choose up steam in the condominium! I’m usually sharing genuine-time updates on Instagram but I required to article some much more photos of the new headboard below simply because I like it SO significantly. I’m so glad that Jen and I decided on employing Bowood for this piece. To say it is been remodeled is an understatement. As you may perhaps try to remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they provided. I liked it but was hardly ever above the moon about it, and following a handful of several years it definitely experienced a couple stains and was in require of a makeover. I briefly considered obtaining a unique headboard entirely, or a mattress (I genuinely desired a brass bed!), but finally we resolved that reupholstering this was the ideal option. I’m actually actually glad we were able to reuse something I previously had – and observing it in this new fabric has produced me realize how substantially I in fact appreciate the condition and strains of it. Like, Appreciate!
We made use of Jen’s upholsterer for this task, and I know I’m a terrible blogger simply because this would be a lot much more attention-grabbing or instructive for people if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or far more interesting if I’d uncovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky more than enough (or patient ample) to find a piece like this secondhand! So we applied a specialist and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just spectacular and seriously would make the home. I have always appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it is even extra impactful and lovely in human being. Also needed to observe that I used Bowood Union, which is the variation which is a mix 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 simply 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 green/gray experienced a quite beige floor, and the white/leaf had a pretty white floor. It was difficult to make your mind up mainly because I liked each in various means – the beige ground experienced a quite tea-coloured, antique glance, but the white/leaf was extremely thoroughly clean looking. Luckily for us there was a best answer – Bowood Union in eco-friendly/grey. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other edition – so it’s seriously the best medium among the two. Bewildering, perhaps! I felt it was crucial to do my investigate and see all of the coloration and cloth choices before choosing, so I’m glad I did that.
I also wanted to share how a lot I appreciate my Sarah K. Designs bedding! I uncovered it via (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even while figuring out British isles sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve constantly just been entirely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no issue in my mind that I required this quilt and pillow established. It is so fairly and charming. The colors, the print, the ruffles…just great. I have a full size bed and I’m pretty positive I got the British isles King dimension. It fits flawlessly and it’s seriously soft and snug. (By the way, I seriously require to exchange the drum shades – I’m pondering of accomplishing a pleated inexperienced material!). It is truly odd, I utilised to normally discover sleeping less than my cover tremendous not comfortable and it felt actually sizzling and also hefty with a linen quilt deal with on it…but ever due to the fact I switched to this a person, I have no problems and uncover it actually comfy. Was it the cover deal with all this time that was the situation, not the quilt alone?! I actually by no means suspected! Strange.
I just just cannot believe that how considerably I enjoy Bowood! It’s these a fantastic combine of feeling variety of vintage and antique, but also fresh and energetic. There’s almost nothing fusty or fussy about it. It is kind of a fantastic material and I may go forward and do curtains in it as well, due to the fact it’s just so good.
Plenty far more updates that I need to photograph and share – thanks for subsequent!
