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‘
With great pleasure, we present the rooms awarded 2nd place in our ‘Show us your Room’ photo competition 2017. These rooms were selected for their use of colour, some creative license, a dash of design flair & fab presentation, all creating delightful bedroom spaces. Congratulations!
Rachael Twigg –
The Judges said …”This girls room is very complete. We loved the use of the colour aqua to link the wall, bed & window dressing, yet the room is not overwhlemed by aqua; there is also good use of other colour elements such as red. The lines are simple, not congested & there is lovely use of accessories – the wall book cube, ‘dream’ & the red heart. Nice layering with the cushions. What girl, big or small, wouldn’t love to sleep in this room!”
Kathryn Taylor – Christchurch: This is my 3 year olds ‘big girls room.’ It was her birthday present that she upgraded to a big bed and a new colour scheme. She adores it and I love how funky and bright the Patersonrose linen makes it! The curtains are her old cot sheets and stitched down the sides of plain lavender ones.
Kathryn Taylors Big Girls room : Lou Lou quilt cover & Lou Lou comforter, bunting & assorted girls cushions.The judges said …” There is a wonderful use of innovation in this girls bedroom. Fantastic use of PR girls Lou Lou bedding, intertwined with the same fabrics to make curtains & also the word ‘free’ Clever!! We really like the use of a colour from wall to bed to curtain trims, & again, this colour use is not overpowering; rather it’s leveled with the stronger colours in the Lou Lou linen. A very smart girls room. Well done“
Kate Simmonds, Christchurch- “Hi Patersonrose team, Logan loves his Patersonrose linen in his cot and on his big boys bed (all ready for when he moves out of his cot). Mummy loves the quality and designs, plus choice of colours too. We’ve used PR linen on both his cot and the bed. Logan’s very talented Uncle Guy Ellis (aka DCYPHR) was over from Los Angeles (where he now lives) doing some murals and art works for the Spectrum Street Art Festival here in Christchurch, and kindly spray painted the very cool Space mural to go with Logan’s PR Mariner bedding. Logan’s arty big sister Sophie and his Daddy did the other spaceship picture for him. We love the PR Pacific stamp cushion too.”
“Just a quick email to say a BIG thank you for the most beautiful products and amazing service I have recently received via your on-line shop. I have purchased several items before but decided to try your on line shop and wasn’t surprised how amazing it was!!!!!!! Your products are divine – as per usual!!!!! so THANK YOU“
From Louise S, Chch.

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.

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.
Kate Harper, Blenheim : “Hannah loves the pink & flowers in her room. The storage bag is the best thing 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. Thank you”
Andrea Eyre : “Alex’s room is almost complete… Still a few things to do with the fabric but almost there now. You can’t see the feature wall to the left painted in ballerina by resene, the wooden shadow box is painted in resene paint too.
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: ‘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.‘

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!

What girl isn’t going to love this room!’.

From Victoria B : “I love Lucy, it is so versatile ! We have picked out the greens & pinks at the moment but as my wee one grows & her tastes change we can update our colours. It is also a great one to mix with different fabrics.“
