As obsessed as I am with home textiles, there is one thing that does irritate me about the UK high street.
And that is the lack of stylish bedlinen for kids. I wrote about it here – and recent searching for my own children’s rooms led to buying adult single duvets.
What I would specifically like are mismatched sheets – simple designs, in great colours with brilliant printed, fitted sheets that could be mixed and matched. In my head I know exactly how I’d do it and I reckon I’d make a fortune – I’m still waiting for that call!
In the meantime, I’ve found two Australian brands (both of whom ship internationally) that I’ve become slightly obsessed with.
I Love Linen, founded by ‘chief linen lover’ Lauren has an almost 20k strong Instagram following thanks to gorgeous images of her products like these.
And Rachel Castle has spent the past twenty years as a homeware designer in Australia and the UK, but now calls Sydney home where she creates beautiful textiles at Castle and Things.
On her bio, Rachel says “We love spots and fluro and grey and yellow and love hearts and flowers and paint and felt and everything that POPS around in our studio. If it’s fun we love it.”
She could actually be describing me – and they’re exactly the kind of pieces I want to be able to buy here (without a huge shipping cost!).
Do you love them too? Where do you think does great bedding for children? Let me know.
