Interior Design Trends 2015: Honeycomb

While last year was all about Chevron and herringbone patterns, this year we're seeing a rise in honeycomb or hexagonal patterns. From floors to walls in rugs, tiles or multifaceted vases honeycomb shapes have hit the shelves big time. Most commonly we are seeing this pattern in bathrooms and kitchens as a new tiling option to the classic square or rectangular tile and I'm absolutely loving it. One of my favourite aspects of using hexagons or a honeycomb pattern is that it can create a look that is elegant and sophisticated or young, fun and playful. It is a classic shape like the square - so is less likely to date as quickly as some other trends we have seen - but it still stands on it's own as a beautiful alternative. Below are a few of my favourite uses for hexagonal patterns and objects...  

Create a modern, Scandinavian inspired feature in the bathroom, by pairing the simplest of white honeycomb tiles with light timbers... 

Bring elegance into the kitchen with a Carrara Marble honeycomb splashback...

Add just a touch of this trend to your home with multifaceted vases or boxes like these ones below...
