Apartment Updates: Bowood Headboard and Sarah K Designs Bedding

Rick Magliano

Issues are truly setting up to select up steam in the apartment! I’m constantly sharing serious-time updates on Instagram but I required to put up some a lot more photos of the new headboard below for the reason that I enjoy it SO much. I’m so glad that Jen and I made a decision on employing Bowood for this piece. To say it is been reworked is an understatement. As you may remember, the headboard is the Pondicherry from Serena and Lily, in a gray linen that they provided. I liked it but was under no circumstances about the moon about it, and following a several a long time it surely had a few stains and was in want of a makeover. I briefly considered finding a various headboard entirely, or a mattress (I truly wished a brass mattress!), but ultimately we decided that reupholstering this was the finest selection. I’m actually actually happy we were being equipped to reuse some thing I now had – and looking at it in this new fabric has manufactured me realize how a great deal I in fact adore the shape and traces of it. Like, Like! 

We employed Jen’s upholsterer for this project, and I know I’m a lousy blogger mainly because this would be significantly more exciting or insightful for men and women if I experienced like, DIY’ed it! Or more enjoyable if I’d found it secondhand or what have you. Alas, I am not a DIYer and I am not fortunate plenty of (or individual adequate) to obtain a piece like this secondhand! So we made use of a experienced and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. It’s just breathtaking and severely helps make the home. I have always favored Bowood but I have to say, it’s even far more impactful and attractive in human being. Also desired to observe that I made use of Bowood Union, which is the model that is a blend of cotton, nylon and linen. Regular Bowood is 100% cotton and comes in a several colorways. My colorway is inexperienced/grey. I chose this since there are two neutral colorways of the 100% cotton Bowood – green/grey, or white/leaf (there are also blue and pink variations). The inexperienced/gray had a extremely beige ground, and the white/leaf experienced a extremely white ground. It was hard to make a decision because I appreciated both of those in different means – the beige floor experienced a pretty tea-colored, antique seem, but the white/leaf was very clear looking. Luckily for us there was a excellent resolution – Bowood Union in green/gray. It has a beige ground that’s not AS beige as the other variation – so it is severely the great medium involving the two. Baffling, most likely! I felt it was critical to do my research and see all of the coloration and fabric alternatives ahead of choosing, so I’m glad I did that. 

I also required to share how much I appreciate my Sarah K. Types bedding! I discovered it by means of (who else?) Louise Roe, and just experienced to have it – even though figuring out British isles sizing was a little bit of a head-scratcher. I’ve usually just been completely enamored with ditsy florals so there was no concern in my intellect that I wanted this quilt and pillow set. It’s so rather and charming. The colors, the print, the ruffles…just fantastic. I have a whole sizing bed and I’m fairly sure I got the United kingdom King dimension. It suits properly and it is actually smooth and at ease. (By the way, I truly will need to change the drum shades – I’m thinking of performing a pleated inexperienced material!). It’s in fact weird, I made use of to constantly obtain sleeping below my cover super not comfortable and it felt actually scorching and far too major with a linen quilt go over on it…but ever considering the fact that I switched to this a person, I have no issues and uncover it really comfy. Was it the duvet cover all this time that was the problem, not the quilt alone?! I truthfully never ever suspected! Strange. 

I just just can’t think how much I adore Bowood! It’s such a excellent mix of feeling variety of classic and antique, but also clean and energetic. There is very little fusty or fussy about it. It is variety of a great material and I may possibly go ahead and do curtains in it as well, for the reason that it’s just so good. 


A lot additional updates that I need to have to photograph and share – many thanks for following!
