Honey Bee Day!

So Saturday was World Honey Bee Day and I have always loved honeycomb in every sense of the world...flavour, pattern, scent...everything! I've always loved bees too and one day want to keep bees in my garden! So to celebrate my love for honeycomb and all things bees I have found some images of honeycomb used within interiors to give you some inspiration. So here we go...

Natural Materials

Honeycomb, beehives and honey are all natural things, the shapes and patterns that are created in nature I find beautiful. There is a somewhat calming feeling to the flow of the pattern and that seems in grow with I see it in natural materials like bamboo or timber. I absolutely love this image of the wooden bar, it is so tactile and raw and the natural material adds texture to the space.

Plants

This mix of timber seating, stone pathways and plants in a honeycomb pattern create a playful pavilion with a natural feel. Using the honeycomb pattern is a creative way to separate the plant beds and pathways creating a colour contrast and designated garden sections.

Furniture

These chairs are a great and creative way of using the honeycomb pattern. These chairs honestly don't look overly comfortable but they are brilliant design non the less. They are great statement chairs to create intrigue and a focal point, a fab piece of furniture.

Structure

This honeycomb type structure creates a beautiful cover and shelter from the sun. It casts organic shadows and has an etherial quality thats really quite magical. Creating a mini canopy such as this will really add a creative touch to any outdoor space.

So there you have it, a little celebration of Honey Bee Day! I hope I have shown you how honeycomb can be used in different elements of interiors and given you some inspiration to explore the natural elements to create your spaces.

In case you have missed my blabbing on about it, I've been nominated for an Amara Interior Bog Award for a second year running and I still can't quite believe it! If you have already voted for me...thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you again...and for those of you who haven't just follow this link and cast your vote! Until next time...
