This week promises to be nice and relaxing after a big baby shower weekend, and we plan to spend some time in the sun. It may not officially be Summer quite yet, but with the highs being in the nineties here in Los Angeles, it sure does feel like it! In our Pining for Pinterest posts, we prepare our readers for the upcoming season with interior shots alongside decor and event details in a fresh, new color story and overall look. Please enjoy as we take you through our Summer inspiration in our own distinct styles.

Tami’s Pins: Summer seems to be the season of love (aka everyone gets married in the Summer), and this inspiration would be perfect for a casual daytime wedding. Its soft blush, white, and pale green tones keep the overall Shabby Chic look fresh and sweet and comfortable for an at home event.

This vintage dresser is gorgeous with its ornate hardware and soft mint green tone.

 I love how this vintage armoir was converted into a bar cabinet!

The intricate wall moldings and beautiful ruffled bedding makes this room extra elegant and girly.

This gorgeous white peacock would be the perfect thing to greet all of the wedding guests.
Delicate glass and antique mirror vases show off these simple blooms with class.
I love the lace detail on this bridal bouquet. Why not finish it off with a vintage brooch?
These champagne cocktails in their slim glasses are the perfect way to toast to Bride and Groom.

 

A casual wedding calls for casual fare, and these mini shrimp and pesto pizzas with goat cheese are just elegant enough.
Lauren’s Pins: Seeing as I’m getting so close to meeting my little girl, I can’t help but be drawn to feminine details leading into Summer, and I’m loving this interesting color combination of bubble gum pink, chartreuse, and pops of cherry. I am picturing a backyard birthday brunch (maybe just for the girls). 

The shape of this bed canopy and the over-sized daybed beneath it are way too cool!

I am loving the Art Deco inspired chairs and light fixture in this photo.

It takes guts to have a pink sofa in your living room, but this one is done just right!

This bar cart is ready to be wheeled outside for the party guests (complete with pink libations and antique decanters).

The black candle holders add a necessary edge to this otherwise girly tablescape.

How amazing are these vintage inspired floral envelope liners?

Pink Shirley Temples are never complete without a cherry on top. 

oooh la la! what a cake!

This perfect layered cake is quite the finishing touch.

 
We look forward to all of the Summer events that we have coming up and even possibly using some of this inspiration in our planning. We would love to work with you in creating the right look this Summer tying in the inspiration of your event with the essence of your home decor. Contact us at sidebyside.design@yahoo.com for more information.
