We are so excited to once again share our monthly inspiration with all of you! Each month, we look forward to getting the chance to sit down and really think about what’s inspiring us, make predictions for the month ahead, and reflect on the past month. As usual, we have each selected a photo that represents our overall inspiration and have paired it with two interior shots and two events that coordinate with its color scheme and overall concept. In addition, we have provided you with our designer tips to keep you on trend for the month ahead.

Tami’s inspired: Right now, I’m just holding on to the last little bits of Summer! Did you know, that before Lauren convinced me to join her in the design world, I was an elementary school teacher? I have never for one day regret my decision, but there are a few things that will always stay with me … A love for new school supplies, working with children (maybe that’s why Bar / Bat Mitzvah planning and birthday parties are a specialty of mine), and the feeling that Summer should be a time for taking a break. This month, I will cherish my time with my girls in the sun as we head off on our annual Palm Springs getaway, and when we return it will be time to get ready for Joie’s second year of preschool. Can’t wait!

What’s my designer tip this month? Summer vibes are still in style! I love me some tie dye, and am dying for the opportunity to incorporate it into some end of Summer party decor. What else do I love from these #inspo photos? Lots of pink pillows, sweet treats in the cutest shapes and colors, and I seriously want to find this exact backpack for my little girl! Anyone know where I can find it?

Lauren’s inspired: I agree with Tami. How on Earth is this Summer almost over? It’s so crazy! My girls start school in a little over a week, and I feel like Summer just started. Maybe that’s because I have just been working so hard since we got back from our trip in June, but we have one more weekend getaway … So you better believe this photo of the girl “relaxing” will be me! 

What’s my designer tip this month? Take time to create beauty in your chaos! Even though I have been busier than busy this past month, I have been doing a lot of shopping for pieces for clients and have picked up a few for myself along the way as well. Just these few new pieces have helped certain spaces in my house feel finished, and as I walk through these spaces it gives me so much joy. You can do the same. I promise, it will help give you peace even on your most crazy days! 

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to an exciting month including a little getaway for both of our families to Palm Springs and ramping up towards our big Bat Mitzvah event! We are working on some great remodels right now, and are excited to share some sneak peeks into their progress! We’ve been really busy getting back into events and with all of the interior projects we have right now too. We are going to work to do better posting on IG and IG stories @sidebysidedesign so that you guys can see all that we have been working on and will post each project as it finishes here as well. If you haven’t already checked out our “in a BOX” line (a custom gifting experience) … You should! Don’t forget to visit us for our next Get Inspired post on September 3rd for all new looks and inspiration! Have a great weekend from Side by Side!
