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: My plans for May and Mother’s Day are busy, busy busy! Can you believe we are working on three Mother’s Day events (none are on the actual day)? As well as a few other fun May events that we have in the works! Plus I have a brunch with my husband’s family and dinner with mine on the day of … BU-SY! When I have this much going on, I can sometimes lose track of everything else going on in my life (and lose sleep too!). So here’s what I do … I choose a mantra to get me through! “Treat Yourself” … I am worth it! I am working hard to achieve my goals! I deserve a break here and there to go out with friends, snuggle my baby, and I deserve those new earrings I bought myself too!

What’s my designer tip this month? Busy patterns are all the rage! Ever been to the Beverly Hills Hotel? They do this banana leaf print right! When mixed with crisp clean lines and linens it looks so good! I love the pops of pink in this board too! So right for Mother’s Day and adding a feminine touch to your space and event decor. If you want to go all out … Treat yourself to this neon sign! Why not?

Lauren’s inspired: Tomorrow, Tami and I are working with some awesome friends of ours who happen to also be amazing “mompreneurs” for an event celebrating moms … of course! Gone are the days of keeping secrets in your business. Great ideas are meant to share, and collaborations are where it’s at! This inspiration board is a hint at some things you will see tomorrow, but if you are local you should definitely stop by! Check out our IG stories @sidebysidedesign for all the details!

What’s my designer tip this month? I’m so in love with iridescent right now, and you should be too! This magical metallic does not need to be reserved for just parties and nails. It can be a fun accent in your home as well. In fact, I recently saw an amazing piece of art with an iridescent 3-D design that I am still dreaming about. If anybody wants this for their home, reach out (wink)! I would be over the moon to find a home for such beauty!

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to an exciting month including all the details from our many May events, lots of mother’s day inspiration, some more finished spaces from Lauren’s Modern Bohemian Home Tour, and more! Don’t forget to check out our next Get Inspired post on June 7th for all new looks and inspiration! Also, check out our weekly Instastories feature “Designer Day!” @sidebysidedesign to see how we fill our days with the things we love.

To “Treat Yourself” at our Mother’s Day Party in collaboration with bryck&mortar and Rachel Miriam visit us at the Brentwood Town Center tomorrow (May 4th) from 10:00 – 1:00!
