There is nothing better then a well designed space. And in cities like New York where most apartments are not as we say Texas style what you do with the space you have is key. Today I am sharing with you the home of Jen Ramos of Made by Girl.

Through it all Jen always maintained her compassion, composure and of course her great style

I have been following Jen for quite a while now and was even a guest blogger for her for about a year. I have followed her and watched her success with her design business, she and her husband’s struggle to concieve, her battle with breast cancer, and the adoption of her little boy. Through it all Jen always maintained her compassion, composure and of course her great style.

Recently Jen and her family moved to a new apartment, a smaller apartment. But true to form the smaller space inspired Jen to create a warm and inviting home that is at once functional and gorgeous. I hope you enjoy this peek insider her NYC home as much as I did. The black and white palette with touches of pink and the added greenery are genius. And to see more and to learn how Jen approached her design decisions head on over to her blog at MadebyGirl.com

The event was a pop up store within a store, for the founder and artist of the popular blog Made By Girl which I wrote about in this post. Today I am going to share with you the wonderful items that I purchased that day. I bought a set of lovely note cards featuring  Jen’s trademark paint swirls, the cards are printed on a heavy, matte, bright white card stock and as you can see, it comes in a beautifully packaged set. I love this print so much I took one of the cards to my office and have it sitting on my desk. It really brightens up my day. I also purchased one of her original paintings. Yes, I could have purchased a print and it would have been less expensive, but there is something so satisfying about owning an original piece of art work. I am in love with this painting and can not wait to have it framed. So if you like what you see, head on over to her site a madebygirl.com, as we all know the holidays are coming.

[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]T[/dropcap] his past weekend I attended a wonderful event at Madewell in New York City. It was a pop up shop for the talented blogger and artist Jen Ramos of the well known blog Made By Girl. This co-sponsored event was the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon with fruity cocktails, tasty hourderves, plenty of fellow bloggers to chat with and of course lots of beautiful art. Getting there was a bit of a challenge when it seemed every subway line in the New York was under construction, but luckily the weather was delightful and the Madewell store on the upper east side could not have been more accommodating. I was greeted with a refreshing and oh so needed cocktail and then made way to Jen’s pop up shop.

[blockquote]I spend most of my days in my home office—so naturally, I have to be surrounded by artwork—which is always inspiring…Jen Ramos
[/blockquote]

[dropcap custom_class=”normal”][/dropcap] I happily ran in to a number of fellow bloggers I am friendly with Josephina of Josephina’s Collection and Adri of Adri’s World. We sipped our cocktails, chatted about how to handle running in to celebrities, and of course we shopped.I mean how could we resist such striking prints and paintings? Jen’s work is such a breath of fresh air. I love her palette and the quirky yet sophisticated approach she takes in her creations. From her trademark swooshes and swipes to her newer work like the teal and gold American flag, there was plenty to choose from. I struggled a bit on which painting to purchase and I finally decide on the pink and gold pineapple painting.The colors are so vibrant, and I love the gold texture of the metallic paint woven throughout. I can not wait to hang it up. It is so exciting to own a true original piece of artwork. My photographs do not do her work justice, it is so much more enthralling when you see it face to face. I am excited for her new collection and to see what she does next. There are also a number of pieces I still have my eye on. One day I will have my dream home office, and it that dream home office will be my first original piece of artwork—a Jen Ramos MGB original or two or three or four…and off I go with my purchase!
