I'm so shocked that it's almost March. Where on earth did the time go? Anyway, I'm here with an update with what I've been up to lately and more importantly, what's coming up in the next few months.
In January, I went to London for the day to attend Top Drawer. I was on a mission to find new suppliers, do a spot of trend research and attend a few talks at Paperfest.
During a Q&A session, the team from The Little Paperie made a very interesting comment about buying what sells. They tend to buy according to their brand colours and that seems to work very well. It was a real lightbulb moment for me, as I'd been contemplating how far to branch out in terms of our aesthetic.
Honey Bee Home is well known for its black, white and gold aesthetic and to be honest, that is what does well. So, I'll be using those colours as a point of reference for a lot of what is to come.
I'm also very excited to tell you that I did manage to find a brand new supplier for an exciting new collection. I'll hopefully be able to announce that in a few weeks' time. Clue: make some room on your desk!
In the meantime, there are lots of new beautiful home accessories headed to the website. If anyone else is loving the tropical theme lately, you're going to adore the new tealight holders that are coming.
We're also branching out just a little with...furniture! Nothing too big or bulky for now, but there are some gorgeous little side tables on their way! I'm having to resist the temptation to keep them for myself.

Speak soon and as always, love from this beehive to yours!
