Yes, geometrics are everywhere are the moment. But I see hexagon pattern as a classic, not just a fad that we’ll all get sick of. And, of course, hexagon pattern is nothing new (think bee-hives!); I love traditional terracotta tiles just as much as punchy hexagon rugs and wallpaper – and maybe more, when I see examples as beautiful as this:
Don’t hexagons work well as flooring? These tiles (above) are like an up-scaled version of old-fashioned small hexagon tiles (see the floor in the lonny pic at the top of this post?). It’s a modern design but the rest of the bathroom is so classic, like the subtly striped walls. I LOVE the mirrored cupboards and the way the tiles continue into the shower recess.
I never get sick of David Hicks’ hexagon wallpaper for Cole & Son (above).
Again, stripes work well in the upholstery here (above) with the hexagon-patterned rug to make the overall look more classic. Or rather, an otherwise classic-style room is made fun and modern through the addition of the rug!
Some hexagon patterns from my fabric samples (above in a terrible and slightly blurry pic, sorry). These are the ‘neutrals’ but they come in lots of colourways – I haven’t had an opportunity to use the white and silver pattern yet, but I want to!
I saw this amazing hexagon-filled stairwell in one of my new design books – Jonathan Adler’s ‘Happy Chic Colors’. Love the colours and it does make a very narrow stairwell interesting!
