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 am looking forward to the beginning of fall and all of the events we already have planned. It’s going to be a busy month! September is also the month I got married three years ago. Wow, time has flown! The traditional gift this year is either leather or glass which is what my inspiration photo represents. Honestly though … forget leather and glass! Phil and I are gifting each other some much needed time away. Just us two. 

What’s my designer tip this month? Flow into fall! The colors in my inspiration board are soft and neutral. I love this look for fall! Add in touches of leather and glass too! Isn’t that light fixture divine!?

Lauren’s inspired: Whether I am working on an interior project, assisting Tami with an event, feeding and taking care of my kids daily routines, volunteering or attending board meetings at their school / our synagogue … Most days are spent trying to keep my head above water and working hard to get done as much as I possibly can while remaining calm (at least on the outside). It’s going to be a very busy month!

What’s my designer tip this month? Find that glow in your space! There are certain materials and textures that really do something special to a room. They reflect light in such a way that it almost feels like your space is glowing. Sometimes it happens by accident, but it doesn’t need to! Find that special glow and give your space or event the ambiance it deserves.

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to an exciting month including all the details from a fun fourth birthday celebration, a gorgeous golden anniversary party, new interior consultation projects, and more! Don’t forget to check out our next Get Inspired post on October 4th for all new looks and inspiration!
