guest post; jen ramos’s office makeover

Hello dears, today’s guest post is by the newly married Jen Ramos of Made by Girl. Congrats Jen!

Jen is the owner of Made By Girl, and Im sure you must have seen her pretty LOVE and BLOGS and COFFEE posters. Jen recently gave her home office a fantastic makeover that she, like me, shares it with her husband. I am always on the look out for spaces that are not only stylish but also work for a couple, which is why I knew I had to ask her to talk to us about it.

So without further delay, here is jen talking about her office makeover.

Home office makeover

Hello, im Jen Ramos… Author of Made By Girl blog. I’m currently the owner of an online shop called Made By Girl. There you will find a fun & colorful collection of cards & screen prints to send to your friends or decorate your home! Feel free to visit my blog for the most inspirational interior spaces, my DIY projects and so much more!

The reason I decided to re-do my office was because I felt it wasn’t as inspirational to me or my work anymore.

I really needed to accentuate the large windows in my office and getting the curtains helped do just that.  It looks & feels brighter making the outside appear as though it were indoors.
My inspiration came from various work spaces I saw on blogs.

I gathered about 10 photos of work spaces that inspired me & just headed in that direction with the renovation.  Paying attention to every detail, like how many shelves would be just enough for my books, the placement of my inspiration board as well as which direction the desks would be facing.

I even drew everything out on piece of paper (prior to the renovation) to get a better feel of where each item would be placed & how it would fit together.

My goal was to accomplish a brighter, more stylish and roomier space……I think I’ve achieved that & am extremely happy with the results!
