So who’s the woman behind the curtain, you ask?

I’m glad you asked, friends! Currently based in Northeast Ohio, Design Space and Style was created by me, Jen Scharb! I started my Interior Design career in 1996 when I took a giant leap and went back to college. I graduated (while working full time) within 5 years at the University of Akron with a BA in Interior Design. I eagerly jumped into the world of beautiful spaces, and quickly discovered that the real fun was just beginning! I’ve had a few life goals along the way. One, to graduate with a bachelors degree. ✔ Two, to have my own design business. ✔ And three, to teach others about Interiors and the importance they have in our lives. ✔ That’s where this little blog comes in. I’ve always dreamed of sharing my passion for interior design with others, and to show how important the spaces of our homes are to our health and well-being. Blogging has been such a perfect way to do that, because I get to share my thoughts and what I’ve learned over the past 20 years with all of you. Did I just say 20 years? 😳

Let’s be friends, yes?
