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: This month is for the girls! For many, celebrating Friendsgiving has become tradition, but I say, why not “Girl’s Giving”? Show your girls how much you appreciate them. That’s what this inspiration photo is all about. What do I plan to do with the girls this month? Shower a beautiful bride with love (and gifts), attend a wedding dress appointment with my soon to be sister in law, and every day seems to be about the girls as I await the arrival of my little one … So much girly fun!

What’s my designer tip this month? Give back to the girls! They are with you through thick and thin … Why not throw a “Girl’s Giving” and give back? Wine! Lots of flowers! Plenty of pumpkins! Healthy seasonal dishes! Or have each girl bring a favorite Fall inspired side or main to share. Sounds like a no brainer … Don’t you think?

Lauren’s inspired: October was a bit of a crazy month filled with the highest highs and the lowest lows. I won’t get into great detail, but let’s just say we spent five days in Hawaii and almost the same amount of time at the end of the month evacuated from our home due to the Southern California fires. This put everything into perspective for me, and I feel like I am going into November so very thankful I still have my home, thankful we are all safe, and more than anything thankful for the amazing community and friends I have. My #inspo for November is all about starting fresh and the Winter season earlier than expected. I’m going to Vail! I am beyond thankful for this new project I am about to start and for all of life’s opportunities!

What’s my designer tip this month? Find comfort and warmth on even the coldest day! Of course, you can dress cozy in a chunky sweater or fun fur boots, but don’t forget to dress your home for this season. Pull out your favorite Winter throw and pair it with some chunky cable knit pillows. Light your fireplace or fill your event space with the gorgeous glow of candles. I know it’s November but it’s not too early to start!
