This month, we have been super inspired by the colours spotted on Pinterest as we start to plan our next collection. With the new year approaching, there is an increased fascination with springtime colours paired with longstanding neutrals.
A colour palette that has been on our minds recently and will most likely be the next subject of our Hot Hue series are the shades between coral and pastel pink. So soft and gorgeous!
Here are our favourite pins from our Pinterest boards this month that have been inspiring our work. Click directly on the images to go straight to the pins and their source!
Min: I would love for this to be my future living room. I adore the printed tiles and window so so so much 😀
Min: Minimalist. Clean lines. Colours. What’s there not to like about this Esther Steward painting? The colour combination is bold yet soothing. I can’t wait to incorporate these colours into our future work!
This is insane, we can’t believe that it is the end of October! Where has time gone?
Our Pinterest boards were a little cold and neglected this month as we had very little time to leisurely browse through Pinterest 😦 However, we did find pins that have inspired our work and we would like to share them with you.

Min: One of our commissioned pieces this month featured the hydrangea flowers heavily. I was looking through Pinterest for inspiration pictures when I found this beauty. Oh, how I wish for a hydrangea garden!
Min: I would love for this to be my wedding cake as I love the woodlands and it fits into my barn theme. The big brown bear looks so crossed, I just want to give him a hug!
Oh boy, it is time again for our monthly round-up of our favourite pins!
August really flew by and we were not on Pinterest as often as we would liked. Nevertheless, we still have pins that we are pretty obsessed and inspired with, and these are the ones we are going to share with you today.
Warning: I am pretty obsessed with food this month. Actually, I am always obsessed with food! 🙂
Min: My kind of colours. Would love for my future home to have this exact colour palette. This is seriously for future reference!
Min: Vegetable stir-fry with carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, red onions and shitake mushrooms… perfect for our vegetarian lunch! I think I could actually have this everyday with rice!
It was kind of strange when we compared our favourite pins of July, as both of us seemed to have a really different (unconscious) colour theme that we were drawn to. Most of Jia’s pins leaned towards brighter warmer tones, while I favoured pictures with mainly earthly tones.
Min: So I made a pact with my body: to love it and treat it with upmost respect by feeding it with good and healthy food. My lunch is provided for daily in school, but I still feel that I’m not giving my body the ‘goodness’ it deserves. Till… I chanced on this noodle recipe! I absolutely love this and have tried it for a week! I do urge everyone to give this a go 🙂
Min: Jia and I have been scouring flea markets for cool vintage items and we recently found an original antique His Master’s Voice (HMV) gramophone! So thrilled. This pin reminds me that I can do with more vinyls at home!
Whoop, June has gone by so quickly that it is now time for a round-up of our favourite pins this month on our honey&gazelle account.
Summer is clearly on our minds. Although we live in perpetual summer, there is always something special about June. School is out, vacation plans are made and accomplished, while everyone feels the need to eat ice cream.
Here are our favourite pins in June.
Jia: This looks so good and refreshing when the weather is 33 degrees celsius outside! Loving the turquoise waters.
What’s not to love? Beautiful pictures to store without the tiresome job of actual media clipping.
A little backstory – Jia was in Marketing and PR/Communications for all of her corporate work-life. When she started working years ago, she grew to dread the daily media coverage clipping responsibility that all newbies were thrown to do. It was really fun for a while (reading during working hours? sweet!), but quickly became boring and life-sucking. It actually put her off leisurely reading print media for a really long time!
But we digress – back to Pinterest. Pinterest gave us a chance to be reminded of our design school days when mood boards were commonplace and a total necessity. The honey&gazelle account is now our lovely place where inspiration grows, and we thought it would be fun to share some of our favourite pins every month with you.
