OK at the risk of seriously testing TDF's bandwidth this week, we have another STELLAR giveaway for you!  When first approached by Cool Galah (who you might also notice are one of our brand new advertisers this month) I was SO impressed with their unique range of towels.   It's so rare to see  towels designed with bold prints and pattern - something Missoni have had the monopoly on for far too long!

Cool Galah is a dynamic little company producing a range of graphic printed towels in this beautiful restrained colour palette.  The business was launched in 2008 by Dutch-born, US-based Katarina Bijlsma, and Melbourne-based Anna Lofts.  Katarina designs the range, whilst Anna takes care of the business end, distributing the range nationally through her existing company, Linen & Moore.  Katarina works on the range from San Francisco, where she has been living since 2002 with her Australian husband, architectural photographer Tim Griffith.

Katarina had kindly offered a super generous giveaway for you guys today!  One lucky ready will be able to choose a full set of towels in any of Cool Galah's designs.  The winner will receive two bath towels, two hand towels, face towels and a bath mat in any design of their choosing!*  How's that for an instant bathroom makeover?

To enter :

- please visit the Cool Galah catalogue and select your favourite design.
- pop back here and leave a comment today letting us know which towel range tickles your fancy!

The winner will be selected at random and contacted by email tomorrow.  Big thanks to Cool Galah for this beautiful prize.  How could you possibly choose a favourite?  For me it's a toss-up - Herringbone Zig-Zag or that incredible White Jacquard with black binding!  STUNNING!

Cool Galah towels can be purchased online here.

*Update - Thanks so much for all your comments and enthusiasm!  A winner has been drawn today - Comment #92 was the lucky number - Congratulations Emma!

* please note, all ranges include a bathmat option, except the 'Circle' design.  If the winner chooses this design, you'll just have to pick a complementary bathmat! :)
