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 officially my favorite time of the year … Summer! I mean, who doesn’t love wearing tank tops and sandals every day? Not to mention a comfy (yet stylish) pair of ripped jeans! This month I plan to be casual in everything I do. June promises to be busy, but I can handle it. What’s my mantra? Keep calm and party on!

What’s my designer tip this month? Keep things as cool as a cucumber! Whether it be your attire that’s light and airy or the overall look of your event, keeping things casual is clearly the way to go. How about trying one or more of these tips; open your windows and let in some fresh air, use breathable fabrics in your home upholstery and event linens, and eat fluffy foods like these stacks of mini pancakes with fruit on the side. You will be oh so ready for Summer!

Lauren’s inspired: This month my little princess turns four. How did that even happen? She inspires me each and every day and surprises me with her knowledge, humor, and over-the-top dance moves. She is so excited to celebrate her birthday and to plan each detail (I wonder where she gets that from?), and I am excited too! Ava, this pink inspiration board is for you!

What’s my designer tip this month? Let your inner princess shine! Don’t be afraid to use over-the-top elements in designing your space. A fancy bed with tons of awesome pillows, a special treasure chest for all of your toys … The sky’s the limit! Who said you needed to have just a few large pom poms to decorate your event? Why not string them across your space and do something different, and of course don’t be afraid to go bold with color. If your favorite color is pink, let it shine!

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to an exciting month including a celebration of all the fathers in our lives, Ava’s 4th birthday party, a really exciting feature that we have been keeping under wraps, and the photos (finally) from Sasha + Mikey’s wedding! Don’t forget to check out our next Get Inspired post on July 7th for all new looks and inspiration!
