2021 winners ‘Show us Your Room’ Photo Competition

Ta-da!!!  Our winners are in! We have been blown away, yet again, with the # & caliber of entries for our infamous ‘Show us Your Room’ comp.  We had a record number of entries ( may be due to the $1700 of prizes to be won?? ). Thank you to all you amazing Patersonrose Mums ( & Dads ? ) who picked up kids clothing, tidied toys, cleared floors, spruced, revamped & re-decorated rooms, ‘clicked’ & then emailed us your bedroom photo entries.  Thanks so much!  As per usual, we wish we could award each & every one of you a prize!! You all deserve one ( especially for being such avid Patersonrose fans ).

There was much deliberation, debate, discussion, teeth clenching & some very loud voices, as the judges waded through the entries, selected their favs, then tried to bribe, coerce & tackle the other judges into agreeing with their selections – well perhaps not quite so physically, but there was considerable debate as it is not easy selecting only 1 overall winner & 6 others to be awarded prizes and not award everyone a prize!! There certainly are some very lucky children with clever Mums & Dads putting in huge efforts decorating beds, walls, floors, drawers & much more.

So without further ado, we announce our 2021 photo competition winners.

1st place was awarded to Georgie Walker. Georgie entered 2 rooms that had even votes for 1st place, so 1st equal; Emmas room with Lucy Stripe & Millie girls duvet covers & bedding; & Archie and Jontys room with Nautical & Wills Spot kids bedding. Congratulation to Georgie, who wins a $500 PR Voucher.

Christine Rankin with her sons Michael & Thomas’s shared room, featuring Mariner & Stripy Sam boys bed linen & Leonore  Mcilraith with Annabels room using Emma & Wills Star duvet covers were our 2nd & 3rd place winners, each winning a Silk Sensation underlay, valued at over $350 each ( these Silk Sensation underlays are amazing & such an incredibly good investment ).

4th place goes to Emma Bridgehouse with Eleanors room, using a Lou Lou girls duvet cover.

5th & 6th are always tricky to chose.  With so many entries, it is hard to get agreement. Our next winners are Liz Drennan for Zoes room, featuring Lucy linen & Jane Conway with Mariner, who each won a $100 New World Voucher.

7th place this year went to Pip Todhunter for Honors Lily bedroom, who receives a magazine subscription.

But we couldn’t help ourselves!. The standard was so high & the judging so close that we have also awarded another prize. Our extra winner was Rachel Lyon, with her room with a Lucy girls duvet cover.

Congratulations to all of our winners & thank you to everyone who entered. Stay posted as we soon feature the winning rooms; plus further comps & offers coming soon.

Mix and match bedding – we have it covered!

Mix and match bedding – we have it covered!

Are you a spotty kinda person with your bedding? Or are stripes, checks, florals or abstract more your thing? What’s your fav bed linen pattern collab? We are crazy about duvet cover and sheeting pattern-fusing in bedrooms, putting different designs together to create effortless style! Be brave. If you are unsure if your combo works, team it up & see what you think. If you like a particular duvet cover with the sheet set and pillowcases you choose, go for it!! And be sure to change out the designs & colours every now & then to transform your interior.

We are crazy about the Greta check duvet cover set blended with Annabels blush spots sheets. Checks & spots; aqua & blush. Stunning!! If you get stuck, or pattern mixing just is not your thing, flick us a message or email info@patersonrose.com and ask. We can help you narrow down your 100% cotton duvet cover, sheeting, pillowcase & cushion options. Too easy 😄


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

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.
Look-out for Leon!

Look-out for Leon!

Can you hear the colour! This is simplicity & stunning-ness at it’s best for boys bedrooms. Red, white & blue ❤️ with the striking addition of grey to add some oomph 💪 in big brush-stroke stripes.The Leon duvet collection is a nicely nautical duvet cover in a modern mature way, looking sleek in a teenage boys room; just as stunning in a small boys room & fitting anywhere in-between. Bloody brilliant!

Accessorise your boys room with 100% cotton sheeting, a few different pillowcases, some cushions, wall art & furniture to add themes, passions or crazes your boy is currently into. It doesn’t get much better than Leon!

The Leon duvet cover set is made from 100% natural cotton with loads of 100% cotton sheeting options. Single, king single & queen beds.

Celebrating PR Retailers – Luxury Linen

Celebrating PR Retailers – Luxury Linen

We love our super duper special retailers – our business just wouldn’t be the same without them. They obviously sell Patersonrose products 😄 ( thats super important & keeps us alive ) but it’s more than that!  They help us create our bedding designs & products, from the very birth of each collection, telling us what they like ( & what they don’t like – just as important ), what they are searching for & ways we can all improve together.
This month we celebrate Luxury Linen, a very strong NZ online store that contributes loads to PR. Let us introduce you to Debbie ( pictured with her beloved cat ), the brains & beauty   behind Luxury Linen

“The business idea for Luxury Linen came about soon after moving to NZ from the UK in 2004. Looking for modern duvet covers for myself, I found it difficult to find in retail shops. There seemed to be a gap in the market for luxury, styles to brighten up bedrooms so it felt like the perfect opportunity to combine this with my university knowledge of business and economics after having just graduated from university.

Luxury Linen recognises that there is a high demand to keep interiors up to date and on trend while at the same time offering comfortable bedding so that you have a great night sleep. We love the Paterson Rose brand especially as its made from natural cotton and available in so many beautiful designs that can easily be accessorized to create the bedroom you love! Our favourite design is Poppy with its delicious duck egg blue, dusky pink, white and navy colours”.

3 cheers for Luxury Linen.  We can’t wait for LL to share with you our 2021 collections – stay posted!

Duvets for Tricky Teenagers.

Duvets for Tricky Teenagers.

Teenagers!! Often it all gets a bit tricky finding bedding for the young man or lady in your home, as they don’t want frilly florals, vibrant colours or often, don’t want busy prints either. And adult linen often doesn’t make the cut.
Here’s a  knock-out teenage designs that we have created. The Jemima duvet cover / doona. Timeless, spanning across all ages, the Jemima collection is fun & funky!
Even better – all of our bedding is beautiful 100% natural cotton.

Plus check out our other designs for guys and girls – loads of options for young adults and old kids 😆.

Leading Interior Fashion Colour Announced.

Leading Interior Fashion Colour Announced.

Fashion colour ‘call out’ for girls – 2020. The results are in! Woop woop! It’s all about Aqua. Soft tones of aqua teamed with silver & mint. So let’s get rolling with our new collection – Jess!!! A duvet cover set & sheeting collection of fresh and fun aqua and white stripes. And don’t be shy to add in other colours with Aqua. Aqua loves colour collab! It’s as easy as throwing on some Annabel rose sheeting, our Greta deep green & blush pillowcases & a silver bling cushion. Or go yellow with our fun Pineapple cushion. Any way – you will end up with very cool kids room bedroom decor. Nice work!

Glamorous Greta

Glamorous Greta

WOW! Elevate your girls bedroom space with simple & glamorous Greta. This is effortless style at it’s best; checks of smokey pine green with beautiful blush. And so versatile! When we talk about having lots of options to dec out your room, we really do mean it! Match & mix between Jess aqua stripe sheeting or Annabel rose spots ( in pic ) fitted sheet and pillowcase to create a combo that you love best!! Or, accessorise with charcoal for a more sophisticated ‘older girls’ look.

There are NO rules with your bedroom decor! Happy combo-ing

The Prettiest, Starriest Pink

The Prettiest, Starriest Pink

What is more beautiful for a girls first ‘BIG’ bed than a good dollop of the prettiest, lolliest, starriest pink!! It really is better than toasted marshmallows! We really should all celebrate pink!! Your girl is only small for such a short time & will move through her pink stage quicker than a wink or a blink! If you are a mother doing her utmost to avoid pink, then let it go! Our ‘prettier than pink’ fav collection is currently the Rosa duvet cover and sheet set. Mix this stunning Rosa candy pink & star duvet / doona cover with Silver Star and bling accessories. Pink really is the colour of harmony & happiness.Celebrate pink!!

Such Fun – Mix & Match Ashley Bedlinen

Such Fun – Mix & Match Ashley Bedlinen

At PR, we really love, love, love being able to change out & mix up designs with bits & pieces from other PR styles & collections. What fun! It’s amazing how you can completely change a room with switching out pillowcases, changing an accessory or adding a rug & create a fresh new look – such fun & so easy!!.

The very fun pastel spotted Ashley duvet cover / doona ( now on sale ) looks graceful & gorgeous with Jess sheeting, the fuchsia or candy pink floor rug & Make Today cushion.

But anything goes! There are No rules with PR combos. Be brave & bold & go with the colours you love best!

How to Choose the Combo!

How to Choose the Combo!

Decor alert! Needing help or ideas deciding which sheeting to put with your selected duvet cover? Or can’t quite choose a combination?
Our infamous PR rule is that there are no rules!! Whatever you like the best is A-OK! But sometimes it can be a little nail-biting for some of us making that final choice of which duvet & sheeting set to purchase.
At PR, we are fully obsessed ( nothing slight about it 😆 ) with creating new designs that really can be mixed & matched with collections old & new. We want to give you options to change your decor by simply adding pillowcases, getting alternative sheeting that tones or getting a new duvet that works with your current sheeting & accessories. And we love that!!! Your options are boundless. Go with one set within a collection and then add bits and bobs as you can – extra sheeting and pillowcases from different collections, so that every time you change a bed, you create a new fresh decor that looks amazing!

Here, we show how the Poppy duvet cover sits perfectly with Annabel, Belle, Hannah & Navy stripe.  You can mix any of these together between sheeting & pillowcases.Happy match & mixing 😊

Creating a Delightful Room for Younger Girls

Creating a Delightful Room for Younger Girls

Can’t quite work out what to do in your girls room for her 1st big bed?
Or trying to decorate a room using pink? Then look no further. We have loads of girls rooms solutions!

Anything is possible with a little pink. A lot of pink works well too 😆.
Either way, pink is the colour of youth, joy, pretty things and happiness.
Embrace pink!  Your wee girl won’t be ‘wee’ for very long & before you know it she will be requesting colours you may not like quite as much as she does.

For a delightful girls room, try putting together the Rosa duvet / doona with Almond pink sheeting & a Fuchsia or Candy Pink shaggy rug. Or create a combo of your choice using the Rosa candy pink & star duvet cover. There are NO rules!! And have fun.

Can’t wait to see you there. Please do spread the word to family, friends & colleagues. Thank you. See you soon!!!

Our 2nd place ‘Photo Comp’ winners are …

With great pleasure, we present the rooms awarded 2nd & 3rd place in our ‘Show us your Room’ photo competition 2019. 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!

Heather Hoy – ‘My granddaughter loves to visit and often takes a book and just falls asleep in her special room. She loves it because it’s beautiful.’

Evie duvet cover & pillowcases, LOL comforter, Cushions : Silver Chevron & Yeah Rite

The Judges said …” What girl, big or small, wouldn’t love to sleep in this room. Oh so cosy! This room is very complete. The owner has made great use of everything PR, successfully combining several collections very nicely; there is also lovely use of both aqua & silver elements linking all the linen & accessories really well. The lines are simple, not congested & there is nice use ( without overuse ) of accessories. Overall, a truly delightful room.


Krysta Ardern – ‘We entered a couple of years ago with my then two-year-old’s room featuring some of your beautiful cot linen and accessories. This is his big boy room.  Our family loves to read and my four year old adores story time and chilling alone in his room with his books and audio books. Dr Seuss is a bit of a fave of mine (and my son is enjoying his work now too!), so we included the bright truffula trees and quote from ‘Horton hears a Who’. I designed his room so that Isaac can relax with a good book, or have hush hour in his snuggly bed with an audio book playing.

The ‘Tom’ range fitted so well with the bright aesthetic of the Truffula trees, and I love the classic grey and white stripe that ties the whole story together from the sheeting to the cushions and lamp shade.

We now have a six-month-old baby girl who already has a few PR pieces in her room. I look forward to designing her room with your beautiful products when she is a bit older!’

Tom duvet cover & sheeting, 1,2,3 floor rug & cushions.

The judges said …” There is a wonderful story with this boys bedroom. We enjoyed understanding the concept of the wall decals, making this a special space for both sleeping & also reading. Clever!!  We really like the mix of a colour with the Tom duvet covers, books shelves & floor rug, & again, the colour use is not overpowering; rather it’s levelled by the block colours in the Tom linen. A very smart boys room. Well done

Our 2019 “Show us your Room’ Photo Comp winners are …

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

Patersonrose’s 16 journey – a snapshot through the years

We are buzzing with birthday bash as we celebrate our ‘Sweet 16’ birthday & an amazing adventure designing 100% cotton linen & interiors for kids rooms around NZ, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong & UAE.  Not bad for a little old NZ company.
Most importantly, we couldn’t have done it without you, so thanks!  To celebrate, we have created a video with a few of our highlights & memories. Loads of designs, products, customers & popping up fun.

Park up with a coffee or vino, crank up the volume & sing loudly!!!

There are a few people who we couldn’t find photos of  ( so sorry) who have been such an intricate part of the pathway – Kath, Clare, Rach M & Rach J, Jude H & Jude M. & of course Sally who has been the main inspiration. And Karen (we know how you love your photo taken) who has been part of PR for over 9 years. Plus there are so many of you Popup helpers  (thank you)  & others who have swopped in along the way. Thank you all for being part of the PR trek.

Please join us ...


And be the 1st to know about new products arriving, when we have our seriously super crazy SALES, a competition is on & other good stuff. We promise we won't email you too often... just when there's something exciting to tell you.
