Setting Up a Home Office in a Small Space...  / via Oh Joy!

If you have a smaller home or apartment and need a sometimes home office, creating a dedicated office space can be low on the priority list. But it's SO nice to have a space ready when you do need to work from home for a bit, pay those bills, or sit down and write letters. So today, we're showing you how you can create a small home office either as part of a guest room or a small corner of another main space in your home! It just takes up one corner, and with a few key elements, it truly feels like its very own special place. Here's are a few key tips...

Happy Friday + Something New We're Trying... / via Oh Joy!

2019 has been the year of refreshing and opening my eyes up to new things...both personally and professionally. I wrapped up a year-long session with my life coach, and I'm doing my best to break out of my workaholic tendencies (like go out for lunch on a work day more often!). I really emphasized to my team how much I want them to come along for the ride in continuing to think outside the box both in their jobs and their personal lives as well. We did an all-day brainstorming session a couple months ago to dive deep into new ideas, new ways of doing things, and what's next for Oh Joy. It was great to get everyone's feedback and have their involvement in part of that process.

Style Guide: Rules (To Break) for Dressing a Plus-Size Body... / via Oh Joy!
 
I'm excited today to introduce the first of a series of fashion posts written by members of the Oh Joy! team. A couple years ago, we started the Dressing the Team series because I wanted to highlight the variety of women (and our unique body types) that work here. We wanted to get even more in depth into everyone's style story and really highlight how they dress for various needs, have evolved in their own styles, and tips they can offer to you as well. Today, we're starting with Courtney! -Joy

easy color-block shelves... / via oh joy!

It's nothing new that we love color-blocking here at Oh Joy! There are SO many fun ways to color-block with shelves (like this or this). But for this bright, whimsical playroom, we thought it would be fun to add in painted color-blocked walls and then incorporate shelving into the space. It creates a great focal wall that is stylish, functional, AND allows you to introduce even more color into your space. Check it out...
