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 kinda love that this month I get to attend a bunch of events! A black tie gala, an engagement party, and Father’s Day festivities … So much fun! The events side of our business isn’t slowing down at all either. In fact, we have barely had time to tell you about all the awesome projects we have recently signed on to. Let’s just say big things are happening for Side by Side Design right now! With all the craziness that is my life, I also agreed to host a BBQ for the man in my life. Hence why my inspo pic is a lamb chop. I will definitely make it a priority this month to show my fathers and the one who gave me my baby how much I appreciate them! Yay Dads!

What’s my designer tip this month? Add in a touch of masculine energy! The man in my life would love heavy wooden details like this live edge headboard and an all wood kitchen island. I happen to like them too! I always say you can’t have a party without tons of flowers, but anything green really does the trick. This would be the perfect set up for Father’s Day this year, don’t you think?

Lauren’s inspired: What’s inspiring me this month? These three bright personalities! I am so very proud of them as they all finished school this week. Two are moving on from their first year of preschool, and one graduated from Kindergarten. My daughter Ava’s birthday also happens to be this month, so it seems I will be celebrating all month long. What did she pick as her party theme? Super heroes, and I find it fitting because her sisters look up to her so much. I picked a bright and fun concept because in our house we are going into summer like …

What’s my designer tip this month? Have some summer fun! If it’s color that you love, find an awesome pattern to paint on the wall (Like we are doing at my in-laws house right now … Stay tuned!). Or find the right pieces to give your room a pop. If color is not usually your thing, but you are digging it for the summer months, find a few bright accessories to add to your space and you can enjoy them for as long as you want. As for that summer party you are throwing, why not fill up your entire pool with floats and balloons or order your favorite treat in every color of the rainbow?
