We've admired the cards and creative designs by Jen Ramos of Made By Girl for a while now. Aside from her online shop, she maintains a blog full of colorful design ideas for the home. When we were visiting friends in Las Vegas a few weeks ago, we contacted Jen and she graciously accepted our invitation to do a House Tour. Moving from New York a few years ago, Jen wanted to carry her bohemian and eclectic design aesthetic to the desert landscape and style of her new home.
