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: Is the expression “a piece of cake”? Why not “a piece of pie”? Well, this month is already proving to be anything but! Honestly, I am pushing myself personally and professionally completely out of my comfort zone in so many ways, but I know that with discomfort comes growth! Here’s the highlights … I am planning my first big events (but with small guest counts) since March, gearing up for our in a BOX line’s first holiday season, collaborating with some really amazing women entrepreneurs, and I joined a committee at my daughter’s preschool in an effort to make some connections (since Covid has us all still mostly home). This month will definitely not be easy, but I assume all of these things will create even more opportunities which I am beyond excited to explore! 

What’s my designer tip this month? Let them eat pie! (Another saying I am pretty sure includes cake, but whatever!) It’s Thanksgiving and that means all things Fall; leaves, shades of brown, turkey and stuffing, and pie of course! Why have just one flavor when you can have an entire buffet? Make sure you savor each bite!

Lauren’s inspired: We’ve all now heard the expression “getting comfortable with being uncomfortable”. I am starting to really get used to this concept and even getting pretty comfortable with my new routine and way of life. I think this wishbone symbol was speaking to me because although we are in a state of unknown at the time with not knowing what will be, I am grateful for where I am, for what I have, and wishful and hopeful for the future.

What’s my designer tip this month? Have a little wishful thinking! If you are wishing for something, it is time to make it happen! Have you been wanting so badly to redo your bathroom? Make it a bit more modern or more you? Do it! Have you been dying for gold flatware? Take the plunge! We all wish for something in our lives big or small … Make it happen!

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to continuing to keep it real this month from our homes to yours … We have so many new construction and design projects that we can’t wait to show off, are full swing into the holiday season, and we have lots of BOXes, collections, and collaborations in the works! If you haven’t already checked out our “in a BOX” line (a custom gifting experience) … You should!
