Things are actually setting up to decide up steam in the condominium! I’m generally sharing serious-time updates on Instagram but I needed to put up some additional photos of the new headboard in this article because I adore it SO substantially. I’m so happy that Jen and I made a decision on making use of Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been reworked is an understatement. As you could bear in mind, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they made available. I favored it but was in no way in excess of the moon about it, and after a couple decades it definitely experienced a couple stains and was in need of a makeover. I briefly thought of getting a various headboard altogether, or a mattress (I seriously needed a brass bed!), but eventually we resolved that reupholstering this was the finest alternative. I’m basically truly glad we have been capable to reuse a thing I presently experienced – and seeing it in this new fabric has built me know how a great deal I actually adore the form and lines of it. Like, Really like!
We applied Jen’s upholsterer for this undertaking, and I know I’m a negative blogger because this would be substantially additional interesting or useful for persons if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or extra thrilling if I’d discovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate enough (or patient plenty of) to obtain a piece like this secondhand! So we employed a skilled and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just stunning and severely can make the home. I have usually appreciated Bowood but I have to say, it’s even additional impactful and lovely in human being. Also needed to note that I applied Bowood Union, which is the variation that is a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Common Bowood is 100% cotton and comes in a number of colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/gray. I chose this for the reason that there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – eco-friendly/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The environmentally friendly/grey experienced a really beige ground, and the white/leaf had a quite white ground. It was tricky to determine because I preferred both of those in diverse approaches – the beige floor had a fairly tea-colored, antique search, but the white/leaf was extremely thoroughly clean hunting. The good news is there was a great answer – Bowood Union in inexperienced/gray. It has a beige ground that is not AS beige as the other edition – so it’s seriously the great medium in between the two. Confusing, probably! I felt it was critical to do my research and see all of the shade and material possibilities ahead of picking, so I’m glad I did that.
I also preferred to share how a lot I really like my Sarah K. Models bedding! I observed it by (who else?) Louise Roe, and just had to have it – even nevertheless figuring out United kingdom sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have generally just been totally enamored with ditsy florals so there was no problem in my brain that I desired this quilt and pillow established. It’s so pretty and charming. The colours, the print, the ruffles…just fantastic. I have a comprehensive size bed and I’m quite positive I bought the Uk King dimensions. It matches flawlessly and it is definitely smooth and cozy. (By the way, I genuinely want to replace the drum shades – I’m contemplating of carrying out a pleated environmentally friendly cloth!). It is truly strange, I employed to often discover sleeping underneath my cover tremendous not comfortable and it felt definitely incredibly hot and much too heavy with a linen duvet deal with on it…but ever considering the fact that I switched to this 1, I have no difficulties and come across it truly comfortable. Was it the quilt go over all this time that was the problem, not the cover alone?! I honestly by no means suspected! Strange.
I just cannot believe how a lot I adore Bowood! It’s these kinds of a perfect blend of sensation sort of classic and antique, but also refreshing and lively. There’s absolutely nothing fusty or fussy about it. It’s type of a perfect material and I could go forward and do curtains in it too, simply because it is just so superior.
Tons a lot more updates that I will need to photograph and share – thanks for pursuing!
