What do Sarah Burton, Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Diane von Furstenberg, West Elm, and Target have in common? No, it’s not another one of Target’s groovy design collaborations (but now that I mention it…c’mon DVF, take your wrap dresses to Target, puh-lease!). High-brow designers, as well as designers for the masses, have all gone the way of the honeycomb pattern this season. If you are geometrically-minded, a fan of bold graphics, or love old school bathroom tile, no doubt you are well acquainted with the renaissance of hexagonal patterns this year.
The beauty of the hexagon, or honeycomb, shape is that it looks good standing alone, in symmetrical arrangements, and asymmetrical arrangements (my personal favorite). Depending on your budget or level of commitment, you can splurge on some Ann Sacks floor and wall tiles, or you can accessorize with a Jonathan Adler throw pillow–just the right balance of geometric structure and colorful whimsy. Style your tables with lamps from Target’s collaboration with Threshold, or even bring the hive into your bathroom with hexagonal, homemade soaps from an Etsy vendor!
