Factors are seriously starting to pick up steam in the condominium! I’m normally sharing authentic-time updates on Instagram but I needed to write-up some a lot more pics of the new headboard right here simply because I really like it SO a lot. 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 might keep in mind, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a grey linen that they available. I liked it but was by no means in excess of the moon about it, and just after a couple decades it unquestionably experienced a handful of stains and was in need to have of a makeover. I briefly regarded finding a unique headboard altogether, or a bed (I really desired a brass mattress!), but in the end we determined that reupholstering this was the very best choice. I’m essentially seriously glad we had been able to reuse a little something I previously experienced – and seeing it in this new fabric has designed me recognize how a lot I essentially adore the shape and strains of it. Like, 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 great deal far more appealing or useful for people today if I had like, DIY’ed it! Or a lot more interesting if I’d uncovered it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not blessed adequate (or individual ample) to uncover a piece like this secondhand! So we made use of a expert and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It is just breathtaking and severely helps make the home. I have normally liked Bowood but I have to say, it’s even far more impactful and lovely in particular person. Also needed to be aware that I utilized Bowood Union, which is the version which is a mix of cotton, nylon and linen. Normal Bowood is 100% cotton and comes in a few colorways. My colorway is green/grey. I chose this because there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – eco-friendly/gray, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The eco-friendly/grey experienced a very beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a extremely white floor. It was challenging to come to a decision since I preferred both of those in distinct techniques – the beige ground experienced a pretty tea-colored, antique glimpse, but the white/leaf was very clean up looking. Luckily for us there was a best alternative – Bowood Union in green/grey. It has a beige floor that’s not AS beige as the other edition – so it’s significantly the ideal medium amongst the two. Complicated, probably! I felt it was crucial to do my investigation and see all of the coloration and cloth options ahead of deciding upon, so I’m happy I did that. 

I also needed to share how a lot I like my Sarah K. Models bedding! I observed it by (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even while figuring out United kingdom sizing was a bit of a head-scratcher. I have usually just been fully enamored with ditsy florals so there was no question in my brain that I necessary this duvet and pillow established. It’s so rather and charming. The shades, the print, the ruffles…just fantastic. I have a whole dimension mattress and I’m really certain I acquired the United kingdom King size. It matches properly and it is genuinely tender and comfortable. (By the way, I seriously want to exchange the drum shades – I’m contemplating of doing a pleated environmentally friendly material!). It is in fact unusual, I made use of to constantly discover sleeping under my duvet tremendous awkward and it felt seriously scorching and far too hefty with a linen duvet deal with on it…but ever since I switched to this 1, I have no problems and discover it definitely comfortable. Was it the cover cover all this time that was the issue, not the cover alone?! I honestly by no means suspected! Bizarre. 

I just just cannot feel how a lot I appreciate Bowood! It is this kind of a great mix of feeling kind of vintage and antique, but also new and lively. There is almost nothing fusty or fussy about it. It is form of a fantastic material and I may go forward and do curtains in it too, simply because it’s just so good. 


A lot extra updates that I will need to photograph and share – thanks for following!
