Reach for the Stars

Wills Star Bed Shot (Copy)

Very few linen companies can boast linen designs which have the stamina & customer interest to survive years!!!

Patersonrose can, with our Wills Star collection.  Wills Star is a balance of classic & modern, fun & cheery, character but not too ‘themey’, combining a flavour of blues, red & white with block colour of red & navy in the comforter option ( Mariner ) & sheeting.  Fabulous!!!

It appeals to a wide range of ages cots; little boys for their first bed, loaded up with truck & star cushions, a bunting & a star rug, to middle aged boys with pin boards & more of a nautical look, with anchor & boat cushions.

Make your boys Wills Star room marvellous, fun place to be!!!

Rugging up

Rainbow of Rugs2 (Copy)

Needing to take the chill off cool floor boards or tiles? Or wanting little feet to land on something warm on cool mornings as they spring out of bed. Or just to add a ‘bang’ of colour & softness to a bedroom, play area or study?

Rugs tick all of these boxes plus do a whole lot more, while also linking a room together, bringing in the pattern of the linen & colours from the walls.

Rugs add a splosh of colour to jazz up any area in your home. There are not many other items that you can add to your kids bedroom, play area or study that will have the colour impact a rug makes.  By adding a block of solid colour or a pattern, rugs soften a room from harsh floors, provide a comfy area for kids to sit or play, add warmth & bring the room ‘together’ as they fuse the rooms décor & wall colour. One thing left – choosing among rug sizes.

Choose from a Patersonrose round shaggy rug ( 1.2m diameter ), a larger rectangular rug ( 1.2 x 1.7m) or if your space is smaller, then choose from our fun themed 1 x 1.5m rugs. Go block colour in green, pink, blues, red or purple, or use the pattern of a shortpile rug to lift & jazz up the area you are decorating. Whatever you select, a quality Patersonrose acrylic rug will last a long time.

The Do’s & Don’ts of decorating your child’s bedroom.

169 (Copy)

Do : make a budget that you are comfortable with & can meet.

Don’t : compromise on linen quality – your child spends over 50% of their day in their bed & do a huge amount of their growing & recovery while asleep. Cotton bedding is a very good investment you won’t regret.

Do : base your room interiors around a colour you & your child both like.

Don’t : succumb to paying for licensed designs or themes that your child will outgrow quickly.

Do: theme your child’s room with their latest craze with easy-to-change accessories – cushions, wall decals, art, toys. These are an affordable way to add themed, which you can easily & cost-effectively update.

Don’t : expect your child’s room to remain the same for your child’s entire childhood. Be prepared to make adjustments with theme, colour & practical aspects such as including a desk & storage as you child needs change.

Do : put effort into making your children’s room a special place – a room that they will enjoy, be comfortable & relaxed & most importantly, it will make you smile!

Alex’s beautiful room

Alex’s beautiful room

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.

Delightful Emma

014 (Copy)

If there was ever a linen collection that we would hang our hat on, it would be our Emma design. Pinks, white & apple green, spots, stripes & check, Emma can be paired with so many print & colour combos. Titivate to adjust & grow with your girl; as her whims change; as fashion & colour preferences change. We love this look – Emma bedding with the butterfly rug;  pink velvet, circular & In the Garden cushions & pink pig ( courteous of the AFD store ).

Comfy Comforters – wonderful winter warmth

girls comforters

Now that days are getting shorted & nights cooler, it’s time to add some fun, colourful & winter-warming comforters to your bedrooms. We LOVE our comforters (or coverlets to some). They are all 100% cotton with 100% cotton fill, divinely quilt stitched, they look great,  while adding warmth. Plus comforters are easily washed – just throw them in the washing machine. Too easy!

Patersonrose comforters add extra weight for warmth over winter while being a lovely addition on beds over a sheet during summer months. Design options for girls & boys; select one to match a Patersonrose duvet cover & create a whole story for your child’s, or choose one that you like the colour & fabric of, which matches your current bedroom linen.

Quote – Extravagent Purple

“When I am an old woman I shall wear purple, With a red hat which doesn’t go and doesn’t suit me, And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves, And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter”

They add to the hints of red already in the room.  Also I have the Georgia comforter.  Really pleased with and content in my room. Many thanks.”

Linen suitable for a Princess

It has all got a bit EPIC here as the media ripple of Prince Harry being presented with the Patersonrose gift in Christchurch, NZ by the lovely Millie Dobson, screens around the world.  And what better gift for our Princess Charlotte than the NZ designed Patersonrose Charlotte linen (so aptly named; we must have known). Especially epic when it was personally collected by the handsome Prince Harry himself :)

Lucy linen for girls rooms is a mine-field of delectable colours, but for today, let’s get green with envy!

Quilt cover / duvet : Lucy
Cushions : elephant, ballerina & lucy round ruffle
Rug : Apple green
Lampshade : Lucy spot

Lucy is a bit of a chameleon of colour & can be transformed with so many options. By selecting green, Lucy has a real sprig of fresh apple green which understatedly pops this linen design.

From our Design Room : “Lucy is all about energy, joy, happiness & zest for life. The colour options are endless. Be calm & collected by using block colours, or inter-mingle prints & patterns to be courageous & colourful.”

Embracing Pink

Millie - Grouped (Copy)

Some of us totally love pink, some of us spend a life-time battling it. But our little girls are only small for such a short time that we should embrace pink things & prettiness while we can. Millie linen is funky flowers, pinks & white, soft spots & classic checks.
