Rachel Castle's Most Colourful Range To Date!

Shopping

Rachel Castle of Castle might just be the most featured person in The Design Files history…  so we naturally couldn’t miss sharing her latest bedding range. 

The talented designer has gone out with this new ‘Little Garden’ print, which showcases her most colourful artwork yet, printed onto an array of gorgeous bedding products.  One of everything, please!

While it seems like many of us are still easing into the 2020, Rachel Castle has already produced a new bedding range, and it’s available to pre-order now! 

As is always the case with Castle products, the ‘Little Garden’ bedding range began as an artwork. ‘I’d just finished a load of little paintings with watercolour, acrylic and gouache, with some pencil and pastel combined, and they were so pretty with all the different textures,’ says Rachel. Ordinarily this artwork would be reduced down to seven or eight colours before being printed onto products, but in this instance, Rachel wanted the entire palette of the original work to be represented. ‘This time we printed them all, and we are thrilled with the outcome.’ 

A soft wash cotton has been used to accommodate the collection’s new printing technique, with tie ends added to all the quilts. The intensity of the floral back is paired with a new creamy spot linen, because, as Rachel says, ‘we just couldn’t do a range without a spot!’ 

Items in this range were shot in the Byron Shire at Riverhawk Ranch, the creative family home of the Amos family. (You can see our feature on that very home here!). 

The Little Garden bedding range by Castle and Things is available to pre-order now. Complementary cushions, sweaters and artworks will be released in the coming months.
