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: As an event planner, you’d think when it comes to my own personal parties that I have it all covered! The truth is … Some things are out of my control and no matter what, something will always go wrong. This is what I tell my clients and what I have had to tell myself these last few days leading up to my daughter Joie’s first birthday. Apparently, no amount of rain or construction will get in the way of us celebrating. This inspo pic is a little hint at the theme. Can’t wait!

What’s my designer tip this month? Celebrate all month long! Seriously, I mentioned my daughter’s party, but not that I have several other parties to both attend and plan this month (like 10?). So, celebrate we will do! If you are planning one of your own, try sending out a fringed invitation! How’s that for getting people in the mood? Frilly party hats and shakers will do the trick too! As for home decor, this awesome cactus wallpaper reminds me of my party days at ASU. Find decor that makes you smile!

Lauren’s inspired: This month is all about pop ups and marathon events. As I have been searching for inspiration for everything we have planned, I stumbled across this photo of one of the most beautiful pop ups I have ever seen. It inspires me to come up with unique ideas and creative displays. I am excited to show you what we have been working on!

What’s my designer tip this month? Add a pop of blush to your green this St. Patrick’s Day! I am sort of digging this color scheme as we head into spring and loving all of the details in all of these photos as well. I mean, come on that chandelier is to die for and I wouldn’t think to put any of those pieces in the breakfast room together but they work so seamlessly. Adding in a black and white pattern seems to tie the whole look together in both photos, and the crisp white walls make for the perfect backdrop. When planning your event this month, keep this color scheme in mind as well. Over the top florals and funky patterns will help keep things interesting.

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to an exciting month including all the details from our girl’s birthday parties, some extra special collaborations and pop ups with Rachel Miriam we have in the works, updates on Lauren’s many interior projects, and more!
