  2. This sounds like an amazing prize and something I would love to win!! I'm currently pregnant with #2 - we need to transform a very boring study into a beautiful, fun kids room and I have no idea where to start! Belinda's help would be fabulous. Great competition idea. Thanks!

    im desperate for some help with my daughters room! we've recently had our third baby and now have two girls that need to share a room, i need some help to work out how to make the room cool and funky for a 6 year old but also suitable for a newborn. my 6 year olds room was never really decorated after moving a few years ago and i have no idea how to decorate so bub can be in there with her without it being too baby-ish. please help me!

  4. My boys room badly needs a makeover! It's a big room, but with limited wall space due to a wall length window and 2 double doors, I am stumped as to what to do with it! I have ideas but I can never put them into practice and they never come together how I expect they will.

  5. I would love to win this for my daughters, I have a 8 month old and a 3 year old and to brighten up there room with these unique pieces would be fantastic :) I haven't been able to find anything like this for them, I know they would love it if they did win and enjoy looking and playing with all those funky things. :)

  6. The dulcet tones of my baby’s cries
    Is the background music for this poem
    In between nappies, feeds, shushing and patting,
    I’ve no time for nursery design in my home!

    To design my son’s room
    Your talents, Belinda, we need
    We spend a lot of time in there
    My gorgeous bubba and I while we feed

    His name is Oscar Paul
    He’s second to none
    A beautiful room he deserves
    One that is cheerful and fun!!

    1. Hi Amanda, we've decided we need to give away two prizes as it was such a hard choice. You are one of our winners! Please email us your email address on and Belinda will be in touch. Congratulations!

  7. My little boy's room needs a makeover oozing 'big boy' cool to match his mischievous, cheeky, dinosaur obsessed personality as he transitions from baby to toddler.

  8. I have a spirited 6 year old daughter who is in desperate need for a room to suit her personality but also give her space to relax and be calm when her spirit gets her into trouble.

  9. I am 47 with my first bub.. A foster bub that happened overnight literally... It was a mad dash to borrow and buy the necessities... Thank goodness for wonderful work mates! ..... He is the biggest blessing that has ever happened to our lives.. But after trying so long to have a baby of my own.. And knowing back then exactly what I wanted for a nursery... I find now I am out of touch with what is available and I am having such a dilemma in choosing... I need help... I just want to give him the best start possible... I also know we may not have him forever... So would like a nursery that suits him ... But that will also work for another bub that may be a girl..down the track... He still sleeps in our room... Love Petite Vintage Style and would be truly blessed to win this amazing prize.. Thankyou for the opportunity... PS I do think The above entry by Amanda Hardy is extremely creative and wish I had her talent in creative writing....
