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: Today (and probably all month long) I am #FlashbackFriday all the way! I can’t stop wishing I was still in last weekend’s peaceful Palm Springs bliss. What a much needed vacay! Every year, as you may recall, our family takes a trip to the dessert. I have always loved this location and look forward to spending the end of my Summer there with my parents, siblings, and all my nieces and nephews. Although Palm Springs over time has become a more glamorous destination, I like to keep it cool … In the pool that is! 

What’s my designer tip this month? Throw yourself an end of Summer soiree! Whether you like to relax poolside or eat your dinner al fresco, do it in style! Bring a bit of color into your space, a floating swan into your pool, or a bunch of bougainvillea into an otherwise simple event decor. Throw a pattern in here and there. You won’t regret it!

Lauren’s inspired: How did this Summer go by so quickly? I can’t believe it’s almost over! Scott and I have planned a couple of quick family staycations to make it last just a little bit longer. A week ago we were hanging pool-side in Palm Springs (as Tami mentioned) with my family, and in just another week we will be hanging out in San Diego with his … You don’t have to go far to have fun!

What’s my designer tip this month? You don’t have to stay in a hotel to enjoy that type of living! Keeping your space minimalist, classy, and overly polished will give you that feeling all year round. When entertaining this season, throw in a few seaside items to put you in that mood as well. 

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to an exciting month including a possible reunion of one of our favorite clubs, tons of inspiration, and more updates on gorgeous interior spaces in the works! Don’t forget to check out our next Get Inspired post on September 1st for all new looks and inspiration!
