Daunted by decorating your kids bedroom? We provide some tips.

Setting up or decorating a kids bedroom & choosing bedding for a teenager, baby or anyone in your home can be a little daunting; sometimes a whole lot daunting! Whilst having the idea to set up a new bedroom is exciting, it can be surrounded with some anxiety – where do I start? how will I cope? what if I don’t know what to do? what if I get the colours wrong? where do I find nice 100% cotton bedding ? Be assured, you will cope, you will find out what to do, & of course, Patersonrose has beautiful 100% cotton sheeting & duvet covers for big people & young children’s bedrooms!!! Boys bedrooms & girls rooms. Yay.
Everyone deserves to sleep in natural cotton that breathes. Even better to find a duvet pattern that works in your home & won’t break the bank. Patersonrose! You will be blinded by mix & match options. If you have children who share a bedroom or 2 beds in the same room, perhaps choose different duvet covers sets but use the same sheeting design. Or keep your duvet design the same & swap out sheeting and pillowcases.
An example is our Navy sheeting that works well with kids duvet covers – wonderful if you have girls & guys in the same room! or want to keep the kids sheeting all one pattern, giving each child their own duvet ‘look’.
Now you have discovered Patersonrose, your bedroom creation can begin. But be careful!! Patersonrose bedding can become quite addictive😜. It’s super lovely to touch & quite delish to sleep in.

Boys navy & grey duvet / quilt cover

Hot OFF the production press & created with lots of passion with copious customer contribution via facebook, popups, emails & phone calls, retailer suggestions & full PR team critiquing, we are very proud to introduce our NEW Leon Collection 2018.  A rich deep navy blue, metallic grey, charcoal & a nod of red, this quilt cover screams modern, simple, easy & smashingly good looking!!!

We wanted to respond to you, our PR customers, requests, while injecting into our collections a boys design that spans across many ages, is modern, yet also classic. What we did NOT want was tizzy, delicate, multicoloured. Oh no!! You, our customer wanted bold & blocky. And so, we have created Leon!!

It’s so often hard to find nice boys bedding which is also 100% beautiful cotton, is available up to queen bedding size & is a nice ‘boyish’ design – not too young, yet not adult.  Our Leon Collection of bedding is this & more; it’s easy – easy to match the the storm grey sheeting & gunpowder grey rug, easy to dress with cushions for big boys, or transition to a smaller boys bedroom. Boom for boys bedding!

Wills Star bedding continues to be our #1 selling collection for young boys. This design spans ages, time, & cultures with so many delightfully classic elements but has the added advantage of having a large number of fun accessories to match & mould into each & every home. Like any PR linen collection, start with the quilt cover / doona, add a comforter & the pieces you love as you can, to create a super cool & fun boys bedroom.

Traditionally Wills Star tends to soft blues, so we love this brighter combination, for rooms wanting a mid blue, slightly bolder palette.

Harry, dream big, tin

It’s all about the fashion & what’s hot for boys rooms in 2016. Being a pioneer of kids bedroom fashion, Patersonrose introduced the Harry Collection to meet customers requests for black & white. Simple, timeless, appealing to boys ( & girls ) of all ages, Harry linen has the extreme versatility of fitting into any room, with boundless colour combo’s.

Harry encompasses a big white print of crosses & blocks ( or pluses & minuses ) on a dark charcoal background. One very handsome design!! Team this duvet cover / doona with Storm grey or Tom grey & white sheeting & you have created a stunning boys room.

The ‘Look’ can easily be transformed by adding orange, yellow or silver with our NEW cushions, a rug or graphic pillowcases. Be brave & add colour; or stay fashionably black, white & grey. The choice is totally yours!

Countless Combinations

4 Designs - Victoria, Tom, Nautical, Zoe

At Patersonrose, we love that we cross the boundaries of classic design ( that will sit in any bedroom & remain timeless ) to full on fashion ( where the bedlinen is a modern statement ), whilst we remain true to our philosophy that ‘there are NO rules’. We love it when our customers mix classic with fashion to create their own ‘look’ & we celebrate all of you who do this. We know it is often a step out of your comfort zone & a stretch of design, colour & theme imagination to do this.  And the thing is, there is no right or wrong combos, it’s all about bed setting & room that you love!!

Above, we show you some classics: Victoria duvet cover/doona ( top left ) & Nautical ( bottom left ) but edged with red.  For more of a contemporary look, we show you Tom quilt cover / doona ( top right ) with the cobalt blue sheeting & gunpowder grey rug for boys; Zoe ( bottom right ) for girls, intermixing aqua pink & red.

Follow your heart with your colour choices. If you have any queries of with what you are wanting to try, do feel free to contact us to help.

Terrific Tom

Tom - w light grey wall (Copy)

We often get disgruntled Mothers who finally find Patersonrose linen & get so excited to discover some linen options for boys. Linen that is not for adults, is not too tizzy, is edgy & un-themed ( no dinosaur or car prints ) & can be accessorized to suit a boys latest craze & passion. A firm PR motto has always been … ‘BOYS NEED LINEN TOO!!”

Tom : This is classic PR design for boys, with strong geometric blocks of blues, greys & green for the quilt cover, sheeting of grey & white stripes & so many gallant accessories to create the age & colours you require. We love the Tom collections versatility & the un-restrictive colour palette. Go bananas with the fab range of cushions we offer, complete with a rug & fun piece of wall art & you have a room any boy will keep tidy … yeah rite :) !

Reach for the Stars

Very few linen companies can boast linen designs which have the stamina & customer interest to survive years!!!

Patersonrose can, with our Wills Star collection.  Wills Star is a balance of classic & modern, fun & cheery, character but not too ‘themey’, combining a flavour of blues, red & white with block colour of red & navy in the comforter option ( Mariner ) & sheeting.  Fabulous!!!

It appeals to a wide range of ages cots; little boys for their first bed, loaded up with truck & star cushions, a bunting & a star rug, to middle aged boys with pin boards & more of a nautical look, with anchor & boat cushions.

Make your boys Wills Star room marvellous, fun place to be!!!

Themed Series Introduction – Part 3. 1,2,3 ….

It’s always fun having some theming in your child’s room that also has an element of education, as well as being colourful & fun.  Theming by numbers ( 1,2,3 ) provides a series of wall art / canvases, cushions, a rug & bunting that will keep a child pondering over for hours & hours ( when they are awake, of course ). A wonderful way to add an element of theme in your boys room!

Word From the Workshop – Mariner

Mariner Blurb

Each linen collection has it’s very own beginning, it’s own inspiration, it’s own design brief. Sally Paterson, Patersonrose’s Creative Director, tells the Mariner story.

Hundreds of different stripe patterns were designed until the final “Mariner” quilt print stripe was decided upon. Stripes are not as easy as they appear, in fact, quite the contrary. Stripes can be done in so many ways. Who would have believed you have to design so many different stripe patterns all to create just one print!! Our panel of judges voted for the Mariner we now have.

I love stripes as they have so many mix & match options – mix with tartans, spots or checks, changing the whole room appearance.

My son Sam has the Mariner linen on his bed, piled high with a mass of cushions & pillows. However he makes his bed, it always looks stylish, boyish & inviting.

Mariner certainly has been a Patersonrose winning boys design.

Pick ‘n mix – Seriously Sammy

Jk & H in stripy sam

It’s about cute boys rooms that can have theme added or just be down-right cool! Let”s hear it for the Stripy Sam collection. Todays selected combo has a red edge –

From our Design Room:
Stripy Sam has always been about boys & about classic good fun! You can’t go wrong with red, white & blues for boys. But we don’t want anything boring; we want boys to love their rooms, their space, their place & to have something that will last them a duration of their childhood”

Let’s celebrate a linen design that has stood the test of time for 6 years!! Yes a 6 brave years.

Through Australian recessions, Christchurch earthquakes, Tsunamis, Royal visits, annual visits from Santa & much more, Stripy Sam linen has been a favourite in so many countries, age groups & lifestyles of boys bedrooms.

Classic in design with red, white & blues for stripes, Stripy Sam has had the odd face-lift; a comforter change; a few cushions added with each re-run. But onwards he has charged.

Who-else, other than Patersonrose, allows you to quietly build on your bedroom collection, adding & changing pieces as your boy grows?? In this world of commercialism, of constant sales, & changes – how refreshing.

A Nursery – some handy hints to setting up

Wills Star-cot closeup

Wills Star linen & bunting with tow truck, cross & starry night cushions

What fun!! You are going to have a new member of your family arrive soon & it is such an exciting time setting up a special room for them. Boy or girl ? or you don’t know yet?

Setting up a nursery can be daunting, but it doesn”t have to be.

From our perspective, we suggest the following simple guidelines :

  • Set a budget; that you are 100% comfortable with. Then stick to this!!! Be realistic – if this is your last planned baby, don’t go over the top; if it is your first, you may have some big purchases to invest in – bassinets, a cot, changing table & much more.
  • If you know boy or girl, you may which to direct your colour flavour to suit this. Or remain more gender neutral if the baby”s sex is unknown, but this doesn’t have to mean beige or creams. There are lots of lovely blues & greens that can suit both girls & boys.
  • Once a colour palette has been selected, as ALWAYS we suggest selecting your linen first. There are zillions of paint options but only a handful of linen options that are available in cot size & there will be fewer you actually like. So hunt out your comforter & sheeting then charge forth with the rest of the room as this will also determine your rooms key colour.
  • Tip : A baby won”t need a big pillow – they need to lie flat, but an empty pillowcase under baby”s head is a good option for catching baby’s dribble & spills & much easier to wash than changing the full bed
  • Don’t go overboard with theme as your newborn baby’s becomes a toddler very quickly & theme preferences change just as quickly. Bring in theme with cost effective items that are affordable to change easily – a bunting, wall decal, cushions.
  • Once you have the key elements installed, pause. Stand back & look at the room. Does it need a rug? Or a canvas for the wall? Is there somewhere for you to sit to feed baby at night? Is there a softer night light & somewhere to dispose of dirty nappies? Click here to see the best travel systems.
  • Complete these last few tasks & voila! You have a super special room for your new wee person. Now relax & enjoy :)
