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: Boho vibes seem to be taking over all of my event designs right now, and I can’t say I am mad about it! I truly am a boho girl at heart! I am finding so much inspiration in mixing textures of fresh Spring florals with tall strands of pampas and monochromatic soft tones. Whether its a styled shoot, an intimate dinner tablescape, a first birthday party, or a big blow out mitzvah I am planning (and I am working on all of these things right now), you will be sure to see hints of boho wherever I go! 

What’s my designer tip this month? Bring on the boho! It’s a mood! You can include subtle hints by creating a soft atmosphere with hints of bohemian textures (pampas, rattan, crystals) here and there. OR you can go boho big like this pampas grass photo backdrop and over the top geode macarons. 

Lauren’s inspired: What’s inspiring me this month? This awesome guy! This picture sums him up pretty well. He’s strong yet nurturing and the absolute best dad! He’s also turning forty this month giving us lots of reason to celebrate which he totally deserves.This year (as I’m sure for most has been a struggle), but it has also brought us so much closer, given us perspective into each other’s daily routines, and pushed us to be a stronger team.This month is for you, Scott! I know this isn’t exactly how you pictured celebrating this big milestone, but I plan to still make this birthday special.

What’s my designer tip this month? Look on the bright side! Although this pandemic is still not over, it sure is feeling like the days are getting a little bit brighter. Try to let the light in and come from a positive POV. I believe there is good that can come from a year like this if we let it. How’s that for a “designer” tip (wink)?
