A very loud, roaring ‘thank you’ to ALL of you who picked up kids clothing, tidied toys, cleared floors, revamped & re-decorated rooms, ‘clicked’ & then took the time ( something very precious to us all ) to email us your bedroom photo entries. There were so many amazing Mums who did this! Many inspired, motivated & amazed us!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We wish we could award each & every one of you a prize!!
It was certainly a very difficult task to select the winners amongst so many gorgeous bedrooms featuring PR linen & products. After many days of deliberation between our 3 judges, consensus was finally made. We loved the high standard of room decoration & attention to detail – there are some very lucky children with very special bedrooms & spaces. Well done all of you. You blew us away!!! Our overall winning rooms were selected for their attention to detail & expression, which can sometimes be the simple things.
So without further ado, our winning room was awarded to Victoria Park, with her daughters room decked out in Lou Lou linen ( shown below ). Congratulation to Victoria, who wins a $500 PR Voucher.
Heather Hoy with her grand daughters room, featuring Evie linen & Krysta Ardern’s room using Tom linen were our 2nd & 3rd place winners, each winning an annual subscription to Your Home & Garden.
4th & 5th where so difficult to select as so many of you entered gorgeous pics & your kids rooms were just a delight. Our next winners are Melanie Old, featuring Lou Lou & Rosie O’Sullivan with Stripy Sam.
But we couldn’t help ourselves!. The standard was so high & the judging so close that we have also awarded another prize. Our additional winner was Kelly Greer, with her Wills Star room. Congratulations to all of our winners & thank you to everyone who entered. Stay posted for further comps & offers ….& room pics of all our winners.
Victoria Parks daughters room with Lou Lou duvet & comforter & groovy grape rug
Victoria said : “I have photographed my daughter’s airy room and would like to enter this into your competition. We have used your beautiful and bright Lou Lou set. Her favourite colour is purple, so we’ve placed a heavier accent on this, for a stunning look. Thank you for the gorgeous products!’
The judges said: ‘We loved the use of colour in this room, with everything working so well. The hero feature for us was certainly the Lou Lou duvet cover & Lou Lou comforter. We liked the colourful play with cushions & all features being bolted together with the groovy grape rug. Then master finishing touches of the drawer colours & art piece.
The room had lovely balance from wall to floor of colour & mixed patterns. There was certainly a great use of PR products without crowding; and good use of the anchoring colour, purple, without being overly strong. A very bright, breezy & comfortable interior. Well done‘

Kate Harper – with Hannahs Room: Olivia linen
Jenny Pollard daughter, Laurens room, featuring Lou Lou quilt cover & the Lucy stripe rug
Maree McNally with James room; Wills Star linen
Sarah Delaney; Tom linen
Mandy Butler with Charlottes room; Lou Lou linen
Alice Oswald with Sams room; LOL linen
Kate Harper : This is Hannah Harper’s bedroom aged 6. Hannah loves the pink & flowers in her room. The storage bag is the best for her to hide in but also to take all her soft toys around in. She also loves the teal stripes with flowers on her bed of Patersonrose.
Jenny Pollard : This is Lauren’s room, she has almost every Lou Lou item available. She loves her new Lucy stripe rug which arrived last week the most.
Maree McNally : This is my son James’ room. He loves his Will’s Star duvet, Mariner rug and the cushions! We have the Will’s Star spot top sheet on at the moment with the cobalt blue fitted sheet. The room is still a bit of a work in progress as need to get a few more pictures on the walls!
Sarah Delaney : My son’s bedroom, featuring ‘Tom‘.
Mandy Butler : I just have got a lovely headboard and gorgeous ‘ Lou Lou‘ bedding from Patersonrose.
Alice Oswald : We have a few items from you but as he is still only 3 weeks old he is still in his bassinet but we are using the duvet cover on his cot. We designed around the colors that were in the duvet which we think looks pretty cool.
Thank you again to all of you who sent us your pics.
Firstly – we were blown away with the number & calibre of entries!! Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who entered our ‘Show us your Room’ Competition.
Our 2 overall winners rooms were selected for their attention to detail, which can sometimes be the simple things. Congratulations to Megan Pope with Coopers room & Charolette Carroll with Paris’s room, featuring LOL collection.
5 6 winners ( we had to award an extra winner ) were Maree McNally, Jenny Pollard, Kate Harper, Mandy Butler, Alice Oswald & Sarah Delaney. Congratulations to all of our winners & thank you to everyone else who entered. Stay posted for further comps & offers ….
Megan Popes winning entry, with Coopers room featuring Hugos Herd linen
“This is a photo of my son Coopers bedroom. We purchased the Hugo’s Herd range as we wanted something bright that could be gender neutral as we didn’t know the sex of Cooper until he was born and as there is pink included if we had a girl we could throw more pink around. We also purchased a double duvet and sheet to make curtains to match and we also use a quilted pillow case on his change table as a cover. We even colour matched the letter blocks on his duchess. We have our fingers and toes crossed (as we would love a rug in orange lol)”
Charolette Carrols winning entry, with Paris’s room featuring LOL linen
Charolette said …
“Paris (11 1/2 years) from Christchurch, chose her duvet from your collection when the time came to update her bedroom. She fell in love with the turquoise, so we went with the LOL collection!! Mum loved the silver in the striped cushions with the silver circle, so we were stoked to come across the “Silver Bling Cushion” at the end of last year – it was a MUST HAVE to add to her Paterson Rose bed! Asking Paris what she loves most about her bedroom, she replied “MY bed, I loooove my cushions”!!! Pictured is Paris reading on her bed! ”
Stay posted, as we will show you the other winning room photos later in the month.
We asked you all to clear the floors, dust the drawers, pull up the duvet & ‘Hit us with your Best Shot’…. & hit us, you did! We were overwhelmed with the loads of entries that we received – a HUGE ‘thank you’ to all of you who made a super duper effort snapping & sending us your pics. We wish we could give you all a prize. But select we must! Our 2015 ‘Hit us with your best shot’ winners are …
Overall Winner was – Kate Simmonds, who wins a $200 PR Voucher.
‘Logan loves his Patersonrose linen in his cot and on his big boys bed’
The judges said: ‘We loved the balance of the room, showing a hint of Mariner quilt cover on the bed & spot quilt cover on the cot, featured with the red coverlet + red & white blanket. The room had a nice balance of colour; red white & blue, without being strongly one colour. It looks very cozy & comfortable.‘
Runner Ups are –
1. Andrea Eyre who wins a $50 PR Voucher
‘Alex loves her new room, it is such a beautiful place to go to sleep at night and play during the day’
The judges said : ‘ Gosh, most of this room has been splashed in Patersonrose but in ways we didn’t expect. We loved the surprise of the Millie square cushions on the box seat & the ping of green of the toy shelf with the Emma linen. Feminine, pretty & practical‘
2. Pip Todhunter who wins a $50 PR Voucher
‘Quite a collection of different styles of Patersonrose’
The judges said :’Patersonrose is all about mix & match & no rules … & this rooms really has gone ‘all out’. And it works! Millie quilt covers with Emma spot sheeting on one bed & Millie check sheeting on the other. The hot pink & white curtains & bunting adds some brightness with the white furniture. What girl isn’t going to love this room!’.
Congratulations to our 3 winners & thank you again to all who entered. Make sure you check out all our entries on our pinterest customer board – you are sure to be inspired. We also feature more entries on our BLOG later in the month.
In January, we called upon all budding artists & interior designers to create a linen design they would love to have on their bed, then design a rug, cushion & canvas / wall art to match. Entries flooded in with some totally amazing creations & others more ‘interesting’. The overall standard was high, making it very hard to decide on only 1 winner. So we didn’t!! We awarded 1 overall winner PLUS an additional 5 runner-up prizes of $10 PR Vouchers. Well done to you all!
The overall winning entry was awarded to Georgette Herkt ( entry below ), for her ‘Starry Nocturnal Magic’ who has won a $150 PR voucher. We also awarded an additional 5 entries a $10 PR voucher each for their fab efforts; Lucy Murray, Cara Donaldson, Isobel McLauchlan, Ashley Marfell & Harriet McLauchlan.
Thank you to all of you who entered ( & the Mums & Dads who emailed & posted entries ). Sorry we couldn’t award all of you a prize.
From Georgette … ‘The animals are all nocturnal and they are brave at night time which would help kids to not be scared of the dark.”
