Design fueled by destination
SmithHönig is a wanderlust -inspired home décor brand founded by award-winning interior designer Kellie Smith and visual artist Melanie Hönig.
A joyful celebration of colors, cultures, and pattern, created by us for you and your home. Plus vintage and ethnic textiles and objects collected as we travel. We hope our passion for global exploration and style will inspire yours.
We’re always adding new items to our shop (since we’re always stamping our passports), so check back often for our latest creations.
Known as the “Color Whisperer,” SmithHönig co-founder Kellie Smith loves to break all the design rules (and society’s too). Her work has been featured in books including Rizzoli’s “Decorate Fearlessly” by Susanna Salk and Sandow Media’s “Best of Office” and “Best of Residential.” Her work as a contract carpet designer and colorist has made a splash in office buildings, hotel chains and commercial establishments around the world. You can also find her signature paint line, Velvet Finishes by Kellie Smith, in the craft rooms of DIY-ers around the country.
A trained visual artist and photographer with a travel obsession, SmithHönig co-founder Melanie Hönig spends up to four months a year exploring the globe and capturing images that can be turned into one-of-a-kind patterns for SmithHönig. Her travels have taken her into some unique places, to say the least. She’s attended dinner parties inside China’s Forbidden City, taught workshops in Crimean Tatar villages and served as an impromptu “lady in waiting” for Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. No big deal.
