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: It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and this #inspo is giving me life! Not sure I’ll quite be able to recreate this gorgeous tablescape in the next week, but I am definitely going to try my best to put something cute together for Phil and my girls. Whatever ends up happening, my heart is absolutely full (and so is our home)! Two girls to care for and the absolute best clients on the planet trusting me every day to bring their visions to life!

What’s my designer tip this month? Love your space! Whether it be temporary or for the long haul … If you love your shoe collection, create a wall to display them on. If you love pink, purchase the perfect chairs in your favorite shade. Above all, bring in fun festive treats and decor when showing those that you care about they are special!

Lauren’s inspired: I am working on my Valentine’s decor and set up for my family for this year, and I have already put out a few things including three perfectly packaged candy boxes from Sugarfina. I am a sucker for awesome packaging, and this company truly knows how to do it right. I am going to keep this inspiration close as I plan out the rest of the details for next Friday and even longer as we continue to plan the awesome Bat Mitzvah we have scheduled for next October … The theme is Sweet Sara after all. I am also looking forward to celebrating Cara and Sienna’s 4th birthday this month. They bring me so much happiness and are the absolute sweetest girls around!

What’s my designer tip this month? It’s all about the perfect packaging! Wrap those gifts to perfection, and your friends will notice the extra effort every time. Same applies to those interior projects … Go the extra mile with your bedding and really make a statement or add those special finishing touches to your closet. It’s all about the way you present it, think rows and rows of matching hangers and a gorgeous chandelier in the center. You will feel like you are gifting yourself every time you enter this space.

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to an exciting month including all the details from Lauren’s girl’s upcoming fourth birthday party, the un”Vail”ing of our Vail interior project, and updates from many more projects we have in the works.
