CASTLE: Colourful Home Accessories

I'm so excited to press Publish on this blog post I could squeal! Sometimes I happen upon a brand that just resonates so well with my aesthetic; the graphic and colourful simplicity of Castle's home accessories is one such example. Founded in 2008 by Rachel Castle, the brand began by offering a capsule range of bedlinen originally made for friends and family. Castle soon garnered commercial interest (rightly so!) and now offers a range of colourful and often handcrafted and printed pieces for the home. As I clicked madly through the products on Rachel's site, I kept recognising UK props and products used to style her lifestyle images. All become clear when I discovered that she used to live over here in the UK working for The Conran Shop! I recognised the artworks as there is one hanging above the bed in Mr Jason Grant's Sydney home - I'm so pleased to discover the origin! Personally I'm crushing on the 'do the cha cha' artwork and the spotty bedlinen. How about you, folks?

  1. I have BIG love for Castle too! We have a couple of their yellow pompom cushions, and I want to add some bed linen too. Also craving their diamond artwork and round velvet cushions - divine. xxx

  12. Is there anything I don't love about Castle and Things! I bought my husband one of Rachel's prints for Christmas, but of course just had to slip a cushion or two in for myself! It's an ongoing obsession really.

  29. Love the bold colours. Really breathes vibe into the room, and definately going to invest in some of those bright seat cushions. I have white walls and something has been missing for a while, and I think that's it.
