Matters are genuinely commencing to decide on up steam in the condominium! I’m constantly sharing true-time updates on Instagram but I wished to put up some additional pictures of the new headboard right here because I appreciate it SO significantly. I’m so happy that Jen and I resolved on utilizing Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been reworked is an understatement. As you could try to remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they supplied. I appreciated it but was in no way in excess of the moon about it, and following a few yrs it definitely had a few stains and was in need to have of a makeover. I briefly regarded having a various headboard completely, or a mattress (I really required a brass bed!), but ultimately we resolved that reupholstering this was the ideal selection. I’m truly really glad we ended up able to reuse anything I by now experienced – and seeing it in this new material has built me comprehend how a lot I essentially appreciate the condition and strains of it. Like, Really like!
We applied Jen’s upholsterer for this task, and I know I’m a bad blogger for the reason that this would be a lot more exciting or enlightening for people if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or a lot more enjoyable if I’d discovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate plenty of (or affected individual enough) to locate a piece like this secondhand! So we employed a skilled and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just stunning and critically makes the place. I’ve constantly favored Bowood but I have to say, it is even more impactful and wonderful in man or woman. Also wanted to take note that I utilized Bowood Union, which is the edition which is a combine of cotton, nylon and linen. Regular Bowood is 100% cotton and will come in a number of colorways. My colorway is environmentally friendly/grey. I chose this simply because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – inexperienced/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The environmentally friendly/grey experienced a incredibly beige ground, and the white/leaf had a very white ground. It was hard to come to a decision simply because I favored each in distinct ways – the beige floor experienced a fairly tea-coloured, antique search, but the white/leaf was very clean on the lookout. Luckily for us there was a ideal resolution – Bowood Union in environmentally friendly/gray. It has a beige ground which is not AS beige as the other edition – so it’s critically the excellent medium concerning the two. Puzzling, possibly! I felt it was important to do my investigation and see all of the color and cloth solutions ahead of selecting, so I’m glad I did that.
I also needed to share how considerably I adore my Sarah K. Types bedding! I identified it by way of (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 constantly just been completely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no dilemma in my brain that I essential this cover and pillow established. It is so pretty and charming. The shades, the print, the ruffles…just excellent. I have a comprehensive measurement bed and I’m very absolutely sure I acquired the British isles King dimension. It fits completely and it is seriously delicate and cozy. (By the way, I actually will need to substitute the drum shades – I’m imagining of accomplishing a pleated environmentally friendly material!). It’s really weird, I made use of to normally locate sleeping below my duvet tremendous awkward and it felt really warm and as well major with a linen duvet address on it…but ever considering the fact that I switched to this one particular, I have no problems and come across it seriously comfy. Was it the duvet deal with all this time that was the situation, not the quilt alone?! I honestly hardly ever suspected! Strange.
I just just can’t believe that how considerably I really like Bowood! It’s these a excellent mix of sensation form of vintage and antique, but also contemporary and energetic. There is absolutely nothing fusty or fussy about it. It is variety of a great material and I may possibly go in advance and do curtains in it too, because it’s just so superior.
Lots more updates that I will need to photograph and share – thanks for following!
