Rock The Honeycomb Treatment

Back to School with Organized Style

If you’re sick and tired of seeing chevron, polka dots, and stripes, why not try a honeycomb pattern?! The honeycomb pattern is basically a cluster of hexagons all connected together. If you’re attracted to organized shapes and patterns, we would highly suggest this design for your wall space. This wall treatment can be completely personalized with colors and technique. There are a number of ways that you can mix it up and make the design unique while still keeping the honeycomb theme. No matter what you choose, your honeycomb design will be entirely your own and help your personality stand out in your space.



To begin this project, you will need to take a trip to your local hardware store or Home Depot and purchase wood pieces. This wood will need to be cut into pieces that form a hexagonal shape. You can choose to paint the wood either before or after they are cut. You have to make sure that your cuts are precise and consistent, because all of the pieces need to be the same length and thickness. Once all of your cuts are complete, they should look like little arrows on both sides. Each side of the wood piece should come to a point. Once you have concluded that all of the pieces are done correctly, you can start their placement! Place the pieces onto the wall, and connect them into a honeycomb shape. Tape the hexagon onto the wall to make sure all of the pieces are leveled and your placement is correct. Once this is done, you use a nail gun to secure the wood to your wall. Putting one nail in the center of each piece should do the trick. Then just continue to use your painter’s tape and build off from the hexagon you just built. Now comes the fun part! You can choose to paint the inside of your hexagons or just paint the wood pieces. Whatever you choose, you can make the design all your own with just a bit of color!

Day 1: Honeycomb

Now that all the candy is gone and the witches have finished their brew, it is time for November, time to say Thank You!!!

This is the month everyone sits and thinks of all they have to be thankful for. Since this is a blog about design and fashion, we thought we’d give you a daily design element we are thankful for through out the month of November.

Our first daily dose of design features a pattern derived from nature and emerging as a re-newed trend and focal design element.

Honeycomb is a mass of geometric cells built in bee nests to store honey. The motif of hexagonal shapes come together like puzzle pieces which makes it a fabulous option for repeating patterns or pulling apart into single geometric shapes.

We love how versatile this pattern is – from elaborate decorative ceiling trim to a small detail on a decorative pillow, the honeycomb pattern is the perfect mix of art and nature. As you can see in the pictures below, you can implement this geometric pattern in any type of space.

The use of the honeycomb pattern in the left picture creates a visual interest on the ceiling and draws the eye up, while the bathroom on the right shows how creating a simple, repetitive pattern on the floor can make the space feel larger. Both are great ways to add visual interest to a narrow space.

Wall coverings are another way to tie in this geometric pattern. Like this vintage gold leafed David Hicks wallpaper. Gorgeous!

This kitchen uses the honeycomb pattern on the feature wall. Paired with the metallic shimmer of the tiles, a fabulous focal wall is created.

As we all know, trends are constantly changing and evolving – the honeycomb pattern is no different. So, if you are looking to keep up, but not be tied down, then accessories are the way to go! Below are a some fun accent pieces that can take a room from drab to fab in a snap!

Above are some DIY honeycomb shelves that work great for wall art or an unconventional way to display your favorite novels. A funky vase, mirror or lamp with some geometric detailing are other simple ways to bring in the honeycomb pattern. Always keep in mind that throw pillows are a fun way to bring in a bold pattern with little commitment.

As you can see, the honeycomb pattern has given us plenty to be thankful for. Weather you are re-designing an entire room or just looking to add a “sting” of drama to existing decor, this geometric design is a great way to go.

So, as this first day of November comes to an end, we leave you with the buzz-ness.

Until tomorrow my friends, stay “buzzy”!!
