2016 Year in Review

2016 Year in Review

2016 has been a busy year for Honey Interior Design. With a mixture of domestic and commercial work – we’ve tackled schools, pubs, office spaces, a dentisit surgery and an opticians – as well as bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchens and lounges! In addition, we moved into the new Honey HQ in Folkestone in October. It’s been a great year – and as we continue to go from strength to strength we are thankful for everything we have achieved and looking forward to the year ahead. One of the quickest, and cheapest, ways to update a space is through colour and we’ve transformed dozens of spaces through colour and design consultancy. A coat of paint (or two!) can really make a difference to how a room looks and feels. I love the colour training that I continue to deliver in conjunction with Dulux – changing the way people understand and use colour in their homes and businesses! It really is more than just a tin of paint. I’m really excited about the new Dulux Heritage range and the Dulux 2017 colour of the year Denim Drift. You can read more about the predicted trends for 2017 here  https://www.dulux.co.uk/en/articles/colour-futures-2017 Everyone loves a before & after – so I also include two of my favourites from the year – where the transformation has been amazing – I hope you’ll agree. As for what 2017 holds for Honey Interior Design? More colour and more design. We are looking forward to working in several schools in Kent – creating spaces that support learning and inspire creativity for pupils and teachers alike! There are also some...

Grand Designs Live 2015

My top picks from Grand Designs Live 2015 show at ExCel London. These first two images are from Jam Jar Lights. Handmade and custom made lights that will add an industrial / warehouse vibe to any space. I also loved the wooden lighting from Macmaster – so beautifully crafted and a feature with or without the lights on!       My recent move to Kent has got me inspired by all things coastal! It’s great to reflect a sense of the location you’re in without it becoming clichéd. The rope on these lights from Culinary Concepts has a nautical feel. There is no getting away from the sea in this amazing unique furniture from Tristan Cockerill.   Wall art was another area that caught my eye at this years Grand Designs. Art is always a great way to express your personality – never miss an opportunity to use the vertical space in any room you are decorating! I liked the Comic Art Pieces for their fun and splash of colour. Life In Squares is a great way of displaying some of the digital photography that we all have, on so many devices (!), these days. Don’t let it sit on your phone or computer – share the happy memories! Lastly, I was blown away by the work of the talented Alex from Lucas Antics. If you need some wild wallpaper or even the exterior of your house painted – she is your girl!     The trek from Kent to ExCel London was definitely worth it for some interior design...
