It is with a heavy heart that we are closing the doors of our beautiful Christchurch store on Harewood Rd, after nearly 4 years of providing Kids interiors, linen & gifts to Christchurch. We invite you to pull up a chair & turn your volume up, as we share the journey of Patersonrose Chch with you …. Don’t fret – Patersonrose continues & will be available at Ballantynes Chch & at retailers throughout NZ, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, MEast & online.
Out of the Cot in Adelaide, Australia, have been a Patersonrose stockist for donkeys years, carrying every design & every accessory we ever create ( love that ). And they have a zillion lovely customers who repeatedly buy Patersonrose ( love that too )! We get the lo-down from Emma on their beautiful store …
Which designs are working well for you? We are currently crushing on Charlotte. With its gorgeous mix of Aqua, Pink, Red & Apple Green we’re finding Charlotte is starting to give Lou Lou a run for her money for the Tween Girl market. We think the gorgeous cushions are the what make this design so very appealing. The combination of the pink velvet flower & ballerina cushion are simply too hard to resist.
Any fav mix & match combos? We are loving Stripy Sam & Wills Spot! The red, white & blue combo is given a new twist with the introduction of Wills Spot. A fresh & light look for a bunk is Stripy Sam Doona with Wills spot sheeting on the bottom bunk & then the reverse on the top. If you then add Mariner Comforters & Starry Starry Night cushions the look is complete
What are your customers looking for when doing up their children’s rooms? Inspiration! We are constantly being asked what we use in my children’s rooms and for any hots styling tips. My number one styling tip – choose your 3 base colours are work from there. It is amazing how almost any item with any theme can work in a space as long as the base colour tones are complementary. My other tip to match a couple of items perfectly to give the look continuity. This is one (of the many reasons) I love Patersonrose! You can have your base linen, lampshade & tab top curtains and then blend everything else from there – there is so many product lines to choose from, I often find myself spoilt for choice.
What’s your best selling PR accessory? RUGS! The range of Patersonrose rugs is quite simply awesome! The large block colour rectangle designs are heavy, durable & very easy to clean (an absolute must for a children’s bed or playroom). Also with the choice of colours available in the round shaggy’s – there is a rug to suit almost any look!
Favourite design & why ? I love Tom. The combo of blue & grey with just a pop of green is stunning & works equally well for a 5 or 15 yr old. The only difficulty I’m having is decoding if I prefer the Grey Stripe or Cobalt Blue sheeting!
What else is big at OOTC at the mo? Our own design furniture at OOTC its like a match made in heaven with Patersonrose linen. Our simple timeless white furniture and our new amazing Australian Oak range is the perfect base to have the Patersonrose linen just pop with colour. We love the Ashton Bed, with Tom linen combined with Al & Em pin boards you can complete the perfect boys bedroom look.
Coming into spring, what’s a “must buy” at OOTC? If you haven’t invested in a good quality quilt it is time to do so. Our range of cotton & corn (yes corn!) quilts are light, warm, machine washable, hypo allergenic & just perfect for these cold winter nights.
On a personal note, what’s your current fav meal ? My favourite winter meal at the moment is Asian Roast Chicken. It’s a different take on a traditional roast chicken with the stuffing consisting of tamarind and Asian spices and then reducing the stock & mixing with coconut milk to produce a coconut milk gravy. This is then served with Rice & Steamed Greens. Served with a glass of Pinot Grigio – perfect!
Bon appetite !!! Make sure you visit their delightful store or shop on-line at OOTC
