Honeycomb Gives Back

Honeycomb Gives Back is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit registered in the State of California.

This initiative began in 2019 when owner and principal designer of Honeycomb Home Design, Ariana Lovato, designed and coordinated a full room makeover for her client’s son with cerebral palsy. (Check out the reveal photos here). 

Through donated labor and design and community and industry-raised funds, Honeycomb Gives Back was able to give a local family bedroom makeovers for their children. Through new furniture, window treatments, and personal touches Luke and Grace had a whole new space to call their own!

Overwhelmed with the support, Honeycomb has decided to continue the Gives Back initiative for additional local families. In 2023 Honeycomb Gives Back is collaborating with industry volunteers to give the Perez family bedroom makeovers for their daughters.

Honeycomb Gives Back met the Perez Family through Jack’s Helping Hand, a local non-profit that provides assistance to families with special needs and cancer. The design team at Honeycomb is so excited to start collaborating and bring the Perez family’s vision to life!

Perez Family Story


In 2019 Cassy suffered a stroke in 2019 and was diagnosed with an incurable brain disease called Moyamoya. Gabby was a full-time student at the time, and her husband was the only one working. This was a tough time for their family, and Sergio had to miss work to be by their side for appointments, surgeries, and hospital stays.

The lack of income caused their bills to add up, and they struggled financially. During Cassy’s one-month hospital stay, they met many people going through the same situation, and that’s when a friend mentioned Jack’s Helping Hand to Gabby.

She began the process of being part of this organization. They supported the Perez family during these difficult times and assisted with much of the financial burden of an unexpected illness.

For Gabby’s senior year of college, she completed her internship at Jack’s Helping Hand. After Gabby graduated, she spent several years volunteering with the organization, and now she is an interpreter to support Spanish-speaking families.

She is very grateful not only to receive support and assistance from Jack’s Helping Hand and Honeycomb Gives Back, but also to be able to help others in need through her own work.

Honeycomb had the privilege of visiting the Perez family at their home and getting to know their daughters, Cassy and Zuhaily.

Certified Living in Place Professional Services

Certified Living in Place Professional Services

CLIPP™ C00739


Owner and Principal Designer, Ariana Lovato, is a Certified Living in Place Professional, as of December, 2020. This certification is awarded by The Living in Place Institute.

The Living in Place Institute creates a worldwide network of professionals working together to make all homes healthy, safe, comfortable, for everyone through professional education and awareness events.

Earning this certification was very important to her because Living in Place goes beyond universal design or aging in place.

Through this certification, she has learned the importance of designing a home in a way that will only enhance the end user’s functionality of any given space.

From knowing the different types of lighting needed for those from ages 20-60, to knowing different types of materials that are best for those with various disabilities, and in general, how to make a space easy and comfortable to use.

With more and more people choosing to stay in their homes longer, the importance of designing homes in a safe, stylish and functional way is bigger now than ever before!

What does this mean for you?

As a CLIPP™ graduate, Ariana Lovato can provide you with an assessment for your home. This assessment will help you determine ways to update your home to make it safer for you. There are certain things you can do now, 6 months from now, or way in the future, and all of this is prepared for you in a report after our meeting.

The in-home assessment usually takes about 90 minutes to complete. The fee for the assessment is $500.

Contact us today to set up an appointment for your in-home assessment and make your home a safer place.


Interior Design Consultation

Interior Design Consultation


Our Interior Design Consultation is the way we start every project at HHD.

It’s our way of getting to know you and your space. It’s also our way of determining how we can best help you design your dream hive.

What you can expect during our Interior Design Consultation:


We start with a tour of your entire home and discuss the needs and goals for each room. You can expect recommendations for improving each area as we walk through as it’s very much a working design brainstorm. (DISCLAIMER: We do not bring our magic wand and can’t fix everything in one visit, let alone on the fly!)
During the tour, we will also be identifying the areas of your home that you want to address first (The priority areas). We will then sit down to formulate a plan for improving the priority areas. It’s recommended that you take notes as we’ll be discussing lots of things during this 60 minute session.

Some of the areas that are typically covered during the consultation are:

· Laying out a road map for your new construction or remodel project and the necessary steps to take
· Help with defining a comfortable budget
· Material suggestions
· Help determine the process for remodeling or new construction.

We also recommend making a list of questions and/or areas of concern and have those ready for our meeting. If you have any inspiration images, feel free to share those with us too!
Please note that the consultation does not include any physical design work such as re-arranging furniture, floor plans or styling etc.

The consultation fee is $250 and is due at the time of booking your appointment. This is credited to your design proposal should we move forward into full service design. After this meeting, we will email you the design fee proposal and get our process started!

The introductory phone call is required to book your Interior Design Consultation.


Kitchen and Bath Design

Kitchens and Baths are our jam.


Those spaces really are the workhorses of your home. They get the most wear and tear, and have to be super functional since you are using them several times a day.

Being that they are so important and all the parts involved are critical, they are also usually the most expensive parts of your home to remodel.

Remodeling + Expensive = can be a scary combination…But you’ve come to the right place.

We’ve spent countless hours learning, studying, implementing, managing and overseeing many kitchen and bath remodeling projects.

We’ve continued our education in Kitchen and Bath design specifically, because there are so many details and codes to understand when designing these spaces. In addition to our formal design education, we have also earned a cabinetry specialist certification and an associate Kitchen and Bath Designer certification by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA).

In other words, we’ve put the time in and are fully prepared to create a functional, beautiful, cohesive space for you and your family.

In addition to providing design services, we are also excited to show you our two cabinetry lines! We are dealers for two amazing vendors, Dura Supreme Cabinetry and Nickels Cabinetry. They are both great products that are sustainably made, durable, beautiful, and made in North America (Dura Supreme is out of Minnesota and Nickels is based out of Vancouver, BC.) We have two beautiful displays in our office, so come on by!

If you use our cabinetry for your project, we will help manage and oversee our role as the cabinetry supplier on your project. We would be working closely with your contractor for this process.

We also credit $1500 design fee towards the purchase of cabinetry! Woohoo!

 

 

Here are our offerings within Kitchen and Bath Design:

1 – Interior Design Consultation: Like all of our services, we start with an Interior Design Consultation, which is where we meet you at your home, get a sense for your space and what you’re looking for.  After this meeting, we will send you a proposal for our design time based on the scope of your project. Once that is signed and a deposit is collected, we move to step 2.

1a – Kitchen and Bath Design Checklist: We get down to the nitty gritty about your preferences, what you are looking to store, how you use your space, appliances, plumbing fixtures, family size, budget, material preferences etc.  The questionnaire is very specific to your project.

1b – Kitchen and Bath Budget Worksheet: The B word is not super fun, BUT we’ll make it fun! In order for us to do the best job possible, we need to be on the same page regarding the budget. We’ll review our worksheet with you as part of the consultation process.

2 – Inspiration Analysis: Let’s review those Pinterest boards and Houzz links! Not super tech-y? Cutouts from magazines are totally fine. This is really a chance for us to see what you love and how we can bring that to life given your space.

3 – Site Measure and Verification:  We bring out the big guns (AKA our laser measuring tapes) and get to work.  We may also need to meet with a contractor or structural engineer during this time in case we are moving walls and need to verify anything load bearing.

4 – Design Phase: Once we have our measurements and we have our parameters, we can get to work!

5 – Design Meeting: Once we are complete with our design drawings, we will schedule a meeting to review. Our design drawings include a 2D plan and layout, elevations with key notes, and 3 high resolution renderings. A 360 degree Virtual Reality Rendering is available at an additional cost.

6 – Design Samples: Depending on the scope of work, we will bring applicable samples to our design meeting. These may include: countertop samples, cabinetry, cabinetry hardware, finish samples etc.

6a – We will also select paint, window treatments, bath hardware, plumbing fixtures, and lighting if all applicable.

7 – Revisions and Final Package: Once we have made any changes and documented your selections, we bundle it all up for you and place it into a Dropbox folder for easy access for you and your Contractor.

8 – Cabinetry: If you are using our cabinetry lines, we will help manage the procurement and installation of our cabinetry. You’ll be working closely with our cabinetry specialist to ensure a smooth process!

9 – Design Check In: Once you are in the process of remodeling or building and come across any questions, ask us! If you would like to have us involved during construction, you can purchase 5 or 10 hour time blocks to do so.

Kitchen and Bath design services start at $3000 and vary depending on your needs.

Contact us today to schedule a complimentary phone consultation!

The best money spent was hiring Honeycomb. The kitchen and bath remodel exceeded our expectations. Her input, patience and knowledge were truly invaluable.
