In our Pining For Pinterest posts, we prepare our readers for the upcoming season with interior shots alongside decor and event details in a fresh, new color story and overall look. Winter has already begun. The holidays are here … So many presents to wrap, pastries to bake, and parties to attend! Please enjoy as we take you through our inspiration for two totally different concepts that stay true to the essence of the Side by Side Design model of Interior Design and Event Planning going hand in hand. These events, whether casual or over-the-top, are meant to take place where you feel most at home. Get it?

Tami’s Pins: What’s “pin”spiring me this season? Wreaths, garland, and everything greenery! Crisp white backdrops are always in season, and you know I love me some touches of marble and shiny gold, but what really makes this year’s holiday decorations special are the more natural elements. This family sprung for fresh (live) strands of garland in unexpected ways and fresh flowers too. A casual brunch with family is a great place to exchange gifts and sip hot cocoa. 

With this as your backdrop, you can really go any way you want with your holiday decor. Classic yet modern!

Gorgeous accessories are appreciated all year long.

Fresh flowers make a statement in this stunning setting complete with candlelight, stockings, and a warm fire to sit by.

This chandelier is beyond amazing! Guests will love looking up and around at all of the special party touches as they eat.

Menus printed on the chicest of paper prepare them for what is to come as well.

As this is a family at-home event, they are keeping it casual this year … Winter white!

A cup of cocoa is a great way to toast this holiday season.

This party host gets to make her own rules … She has personally picked out a special gift for each of her guests and wrapped them in style.

Lauren’s Pins: What’s “pin”spiring me this season? Setting the tone with color through lighting! Hosting at home but creating a look that is so festive and unique you almost forget where you are. Greeted into the space with bold colors (like fuchsia and indigo) is a great way to create a large impact through something so simple, and all the other decor elements come secondary but are special in their own right. I am picturing a very upscale New Year’s party for all the major players in the Hollywood Hills. Dressed to perfection, wined and dined, and ending the night with a private fireworks show.

This gorgeous home is bold all year long. Enhanced through lighting, it will take on a whole new vibe.

Another space in this amazing estate which gave us the color palette from which to work off of.

Uplighting in the perfect shade of fuchsia transforms this cocktail space into something nobody will forget …

… and changing colors as you move from room to room is just to die for!

The guests pull out all of the stops this New Years and dress in iridescent gowns that fit the theme.

Glitter and sparkle is what this time of year is all about. 

A festive cocktail that screams New Years!

Not bad, huh?

This Winter is our busiest yet, and we are so excited to continue bringing the events “Side” of our business to the next level. We look forward to all that is coming up this season and hopefully using some of this inspiration in our own planning. We would love to work with you in creating the right look this Winter by tying in the inspiration of your event with the essence of your home decor. Contact us at for more information.
