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: I really can’t believe it … My “sprinkle” has come and gone, today I am working to organize all of the beautiful things that we received, and within the next three weeks I should be a mom again! It all feels so surreal. My emotions are a little mixed. I am nervous about sleep deprivation and figuring out how to care for two, but excited to finally meet baby girl #2 and see what Joie is like as a big sis. Somehow between Lauren and I, we can only make girls (LOL), so I am adding another girl to the crew … and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

What’s my designer tip this month? Use the new year (and a new baby) as an excuse to get yourself organized! Big floral printed wallpaper will compliment an otherwise super clean nursery and will look great in your laundry room too! I am obsessed with this event space. Whoever thought to organize these fabulous velvet chairs by color should be seriously applauded. The way these envelopes are return addressed is pure genius too!

Lauren’s inspired: “Set goals and fu***** crush them” … If that is not motivation, I don’t know what is! I am so proud of Tami and I for crushing our goals last year for our business, and I can’t wait to do the same this year again! This past year, I have been listening a lot to different motivational podcasts including Rachel Hollis’ Rise, and one of her pieces of advice that majorly has stuck with me is to set a goal, but when you get close to that goal, raise it and push even harder. This is something I live by now and it motivates me each and every day! As for my board, since this is our birthday month, I decided to go completely white, gold, and black since those are my favorite colors and they make me happiest!

What’s my designer tip this month? Set goals for your house or your event and crush them as well! There’s no reason your space has to be ordinary or like anyone else’s. If you have a vision for how you’d like it to look, follow your dreams. The sky’s the limit!

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to an exciting month including all the details from our last event of the year (a roaring 20’s themed New Year’s party), updates from our Vail interior project, and (fingers crossed) a baby will come soon … We have mentioned that Tami is just a few short weeks away right?! Don’t forget to check out our next Get Inspired post on February 7th for all new looks and inspiration!
