Hexagons in Design

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer

2015 was a year where modern minimalism met rustic traditional.  Break the new year in with fresh inspiration by varying your designs slightly; explore new color palettes, re-discover shapes, and allow yourself the freedom to create.  Today I’m going to share inspiration featuring hexagons in design!

Hexagons naturally work well in mosaics and when placing tile!  The six-sided shape easily fits together to create a seamless traditional pattern for your bathroom floor or an intricate hardwood floor pattern.  The hardwood flooring shown below features a beautiful hexagon pattern which is both eye-catching and timeless.

Screen Dividers & Wall Accents

Traditionally, we think of blinds, screen dividers and wall accents in a vertical movement.  Switch things up by opting for a sweeter “honeycomb” effect with hexagons!

Hardwood Flooring Styles

If you are looking to remodel your house for the better consider a hardwood floor renovation!  Hardwood floors increase your home’s property value while giving your interior a timeless update.  There are so many hardwood flooring styles, it’s best to review them before your renovation begins.

Hardwood Flooring Styles

When you’re sorting through hardwood flooring samples, remember that your floor’s appearance depends on the material it has been milled from.

Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring Cami Weinstein


Things to consider when shopping for hardwood floors are the hardness of the wood, how the wood reacts to humidity, the wood grain pattern, plank width, how easy the wood is to install, and whether it will stand up to your lifestyle.

Reclaimed Hardwood Flooring

Reclaimed hardwood flooring is both eco-friendly and trendy right now.  The rustic appeal and sentimental value from reclaimed flooring gives the room a personality all its own.  Reclaimed hardwood flooring is often salvaged from barns, wine barrels and warehouses.

Pine Hardwood Flooring

For the Elegant Connecticut Interior

Connecticut Interior Designer Cami Weinstein

Connecticut homes often feature classic architectural elements.  Give your room a fresh update by keeping the color palette simple.  To veer away from the classic black and white palette, consider deep, smokey charcoal hues and elegant creams.

Consider updating your interior’s paint to make your mantle pop!

For the Contemporary Den

If your fireplace is located in a smaller room of your house (or you have various fireplaces and one happens to be in a smaller room), consider re-vamping the interior into a cozy, contemporary den!  This fireplace is the perfect focal point, and the mantle is ideal for sculptures or personal touches, such as family photographs.

Consider Adding:  Barcart & Accessories

For the Eclectic Lifestyle

Consider adding a luxurious patterned rug!
