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: Man, I need a vacation! Between being pregnant (Spoiler alert … If you didn’t read Wednesday’s post), work, and the day to day with my one year old, I am a bit exhausted! Our annual family trip to Palm Springs cannot come fast enough! I really just need a few days away to be poolside and just chill! Can’t wait to see my cute girl playing with her cousins in her new floppy hat and sunnies (If she’ll keep them on her face.) in just a few short weeks. Palm Springs here we come!

What’s my designer tip this month? Chill out! If on vacation, bring a little of home with you … A soft throw for your borrowed bed or a favorite beach towel! Staying somewhere where you can do dinners in? It would be so much fun to set up a special space to eat your meal with fresh local flowers, a cute striped runner, and candles galore! I added this cookie pic because I couldn’t resist … and I may know of someone who can make them custom if you’re interested. Hit me up!

Lauren’s inspired: A blank canvas! Crisp, white paint! Sometimes we all need a fresh start. A clean piece of paper to jot down new ideas. I am out doing my first official consultation today, will be starting a brand new project next week, and I am so excited for that refreshing feeling I get when I start something new.

What’s my designer tip this month? Don’t let anyone tell you that white is not a color! My kids don’t like it when I tell them that white is my favorite color, so to them it is “purple”, but to me white is the color that makes me most happy! It’s crisp, it’s clean, and it makes any room look brighter and lighter. Try it out in your home, and you’ll see!

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to an exciting month including all the details from a fun fortieth birthday celebration, finished spaces from our Modern With Antiques client’s home … FINALLY!, a bit of much needed vacay, and more!
