IN THE NAVY 💙...


Navy Geometric and Firefish Moodboard including Jennifer Manners rug




After six months at home it was a bitter sweet moment seeing the kids return to school. Back at the studio Suze and I can’t help but talk about them constantly, looking forward to the moment at the end of the day when we see their happy smiley faces again.

With hours to play with, and in-between laughter (and a few tears) we have been feverishly plotting collaborations, a new fabric collection and exciting products for our Porcupine Pop-Up.

On that note, if you are a lover of the Instagram, it’s worth following us on @porcupinepopup to be the first in-the-know when we release a new product out to the market. More about that below.








MOODY BLUE MOODBOARDS

Blue, especially navy, is a safe colour for me. Over and over again it delivers and faultlessly proves to hugely versatile and consequently timeless. It can be easily paired with brighter colours like red, orange, pink, yellow and even green. Don’t believe the saying ‘blue and green should never be seen’… it’s a myth.



Here are some of our favourite blues, currently in stock in our studio. Each pattern displaying their own beat, whether it be floral, geometric or rhythmic.


When working with navy I find it’s always rewarding to introduce flashes of bright colours. Examples of our studio creations below include hand painted curtain poles, a raspberry red contrasting trim on a headboard, red lampshades and a funky African Wax drum stool.


Eden Navy Floral Fabric for Curtains and Upholstery


So many of you have gone wild over this bold colourful fabric aptly named EDEN. For us this is truly an unspoilt paradise of a design. A perfect marriage of florals and geometrics. Suze walked into the studio today embracing an occasional chair. It’s in dire need of a make-over and we may just pretty it up with this exquisite Eden.


PORCUPINE POP-UP


It’s started. Follow us on Instagram @PorcupinePopUp


Every Friday we will post three new products from our studio. Fun, colourful, decorative, statement pieces for the home. But you will have to be quick on your toes as each handcrafted creation will be a one off or part of a limited edition. Once they are gone… they are gone!


In the meantime here are a few lines from one of Suze’s favourite songs…
