Trendspotting: Honeycomb for the Home

Trendspotting: Honeycomb for the Home

It's another win for the bees. In addition to their main career pollinating our fruits and veggies, they've also found the time to dabble in hive architecture. By creating the graphic, cool honeycomb structure, they've inspired some pretty rad home decor.

I especially love hexagonal honeycomb because it feels organic but is also repetitive, so it's perfect for adding geometric interest to decor or textiles. Dare I say, this pattern is the bee's knees.
