Factors are actually commencing to decide up steam in the condominium! I’m constantly sharing authentic-time updates on Instagram but I desired to publish some far more photos of the new headboard right here because I really like it SO a lot. I’m so happy that Jen and I made the decision on applying Bowood for this piece. To say it’s been remodeled is an understatement. As you may keep in mind, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they provided. I appreciated it but was never over the moon about it, and after a several several years it undoubtedly had a several stains and was in need to have of a makeover. I briefly regarded as getting a distinctive headboard entirely, or a mattress (I genuinely wished a brass mattress!), but finally we determined that reupholstering this was the very best possibility. I’m truly truly glad we ended up capable to reuse a little something I now had – and seeing it in this new cloth has produced me understand how much I really love the condition and traces of it. Like, Adore!
We used Jen’s upholsterer for this project, and I know I’m a poor blogger mainly because this would be much extra attention-grabbing or educational for men and women if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or additional fascinating if I’d discovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not lucky plenty of (or affected person adequate) to discover a piece like this secondhand! So we employed a professional and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just stunning and significantly would make the home. I have often favored Bowood but I have to say, it is even additional impactful and stunning in person. Also needed to take note that I employed Bowood Union, which is the edition which is a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Common Bowood is 100% cotton and will come in a couple of colorways. My colorway is inexperienced/grey. I chose this for the reason that there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – green/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The environmentally friendly/grey had a really beige ground, and the white/leaf had a pretty white floor. It was tricky to choose because I favored each in unique approaches – the beige floor had a very tea-coloured, antique seem, but the white/leaf was quite clear hunting. Thankfully there was a ideal resolution – Bowood Union in inexperienced/grey. It has a beige ground which is not AS beige as the other model – so it is critically the great medium amongst the two. Baffling, possibly! I felt it was significant to do my analysis and see all of the colour and material possibilities ahead of selecting, so I’m happy I did that.
I also needed to share how significantly I really like my Sarah K. Patterns bedding! I discovered it through (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even though figuring out Uk sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve normally just been wholly enamored with ditsy florals so there was no concern in my head that I required this duvet and pillow set. It is so quite and charming. The hues, the print, the ruffles…just best. I have a whole sizing mattress and I’m very certain I acquired the Uk King measurement. It matches correctly and it is really smooth and cozy. (By the way, I really require to substitute the drum shades – I’m pondering of doing a pleated eco-friendly fabric!). It’s really unusual, I applied to usually obtain sleeping below my cover super unpleasant and it felt seriously hot and far too significant with a linen quilt include on it…but ever considering the fact that I switched to this one, I have no problems and uncover it actually cozy. Was it the cover include all this time that was the issue, not the duvet itself?! I actually under no circumstances suspected! Strange.
I just cannot imagine how significantly I really like Bowood! It’s this sort of a great combine of sensation variety of classic and antique, but also fresh and lively. There is practically nothing fusty or fussy about it. It is sort of a great cloth and I might go in advance and do curtains in it way too, since it’s just so excellent.
Lots extra updates that I will need to photograph and share – many thanks for following!
