We are so excited to once again share our monthly Get Inspired post! 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, this month 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: This month for me is like the excitement you get when you first buy a new pair of favorite jeans. I am excited for many firsts … my first time celebrating Phil’s birthday with him, my first time apartment hunting with an S.O. (yikes), my nephew’s first birthday party, and more. In addition, I am helping prep for a jean inspired event. Think denim and diapers. Hopefully I don’t get “worn out” with the amount of excitement that’s going on. We shall see!

What’s my designer tip this month? Keep up with all the newest styles! Mixing patterns in different shades of blue will change up your home decor for the end of Summer, and adding in unexpected fabrics (such as denim) and different textures gives new depth to your event.

Lauren’s inspired: I am really excited about a new collaboration we have been working on here at Side by Side Design. With the help of our favorite florist, Kayla of House of Magnolias, we are now offering a new service: home floral and plant installations. In fact, I can’t wait to work with Kayla on some plants for my own place. I just love the new trend of including lots and lots of greenery into your home.

What’s my designer tip this month? Bring the outdoors in! One large plant can really make a difference in a room. It adds warmth and gives it some life. Don’t forget to add greenery to your event space as well. Sometimes this can look just as beautiful as a bouquet of flowers.

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to an exciting month including an official collaboration with our favorite florist, lots of home cooking, and all new looks at some newly remodeled spaces. Don’t forget to check out our next Get Inspired post on September 4th for all new looks and inspiration!
