Round-up: Honeycomb Decor & Bee-Inspired Design

Round-up: Honeycomb Decor & Bee-Inspired Design

Bee culture is not new to the South — it was around long before the Secret Life of Bees and Ulee's Gold. Lately, the hobby has been taken up by some who believe that harvesting their own honey helps build immunity to local allergens and there is even a beekeeping society in Atlanta that occasionally hold workshops at the Botanical Gardens. Luckily, those of us who fear getting stung or don't have the time to tend a hive can delight in honeycomb-inspired decor. Check out our roundup of bee-inspired design and inspiration after the jump…
