Lily Nadorf, a 10-year-old pupil at Prestbury St Mary’s C of E Junior School, won the housebuilder’s competition to design a bedroom at their Prestbury Chase development.

Her buccaneering bedroom features a pirate ship shaped bed with a skull and crossbones flag, treasure chest drawers, a desert island scene painted on the wall and gold doubloons spread throughout the room. 

Carrie Edwards, from leading design consultancy Claude Hooper, was responsible for turning Lily’s design into reality.

She said: “It was an absolute pleasure recreating Lily’s imaginative design in the showhome at Prestbury Chase. Her drawings really capture the excitement and adventure of the popular pirate stories we all remember from childhood.

“The level of detail and hard work that went into her design was outstanding, from the treasure map themed duvet covers to the small pirate figures. I’m sure the room will be very popular with young children who dream of sailing on the high seas.”

Lily’s design saw off close competition from runners-up Holly Kear (10), Jasmine Richards (10), Eleanor Quick (10) and Immy Edds (10), who all received gift vouchers from the developer in recognition of their efforts.

Paula Gwilliam, Senior Sales Manager for Bloor Homes Western, said: “We were extremely impressed with the creativity on show from all the children who entered the competition, but Lily’s pirate-themed entry was the one which really stood out. “Her eye-catching design really stirs the imagination, and looks absolutely superb in our new showhome.”
