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!!

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

FINAL DAY Sat 30th December 2019
Can’t wait to see you there. Please do spread the word to family, friends & colleagues. Thank you. See you soon!!!
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.’
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“
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 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‘
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.

Happy snapping !!
There are very few retailers that are the whole package – provide an amazingly beautiful store & show room for our linen & interiors, who have believed in PR 110% of the way, who are happy to provide some gentle guidance ( sometimes tear-jerkingly honestly ) if we swerve in the wrong direction but just as happy to pat us on the back when we do something well. And not everyone has a great ear (& eye) & is a kind sounding board like the team at OOTC, Adelaide, Australia. Hence they are the 1st to be spot-lighted for our 16th birthday.
PLUS, they have a brilliant birthday offer for Australian customers, with 30% OFF ALL PR until Fri 21st June 2019
We reflect on Out of the Cot from 2014 & catch up with them today on what they are currently enjoying. We get the lo-down from Emma on their beautiful store …
What is your fav PR design today & why? I currently love Archie! With our eldest having just turned 11 (seriously when did I get old enough to have an 11 yr old) Archie is just perfect. Archie is that perfect mix of modern & grown up yet still fun and the soft charcoal colour palate is simply stunning.
What is your current fav meal ? My brother is a chef & fisherman on the Tuna boats & I have to say high quality Tuna Sashimi is always a favourite…but I recently had a seared Tuna Poke Bowl and oh my goodness, Yum!
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.
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!
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!
Thank you Emma & Ash, Lyndel & Stefan xx
