Maddie Sandbek  Working out my need for beauty + functionality in our 890 sq ft 1930's VA farmhouse. Big believer in creating a beautiful space on a small budget✨

Anyone else feel like they clean up more after their pets than their kids? Whenever Teddy comes in from being outside he's always so filthy and my poor vacuum can hardly keep up. We have a dog crate about the size of our entire house just for him (see far left- cause throwing a dip dyed indigo cloth over anything can make it tolerable right?😆) but he still chooses to ALWAYS lay on the rug RIGHT next to his house🤦🏼‍♀️ I love Teddy, but so wish he would love his space as much as I love mine. These are the days where I'm thankful for a tiny home- less space to clean!

That face you make when you're tearing apart moms plants and get busted😅
We are getting into that age where I know I really need to discipline but you guys I have the hardest time not laughing😂 It's seriously a problem! I have such good intentions of not letting him get away with this kind of stuff but then I see that little face and can't help but crack up🙊

It's never easy to step out of your comfort zone, but I'm finally doing it people! After working in design in Southern California for a few years, and then taking it to a whole new personal level buying and decorating our own home, I'm finally chasing my dream of helping others with their spaces too! My first big project was helping the sweetest couple design their recently purchased airbnb property. We had the whole house painted, kitchen updated, furniture purchased (and some pieces i chalk painted!), and completely decorated in under 2️⃣ weeks! It was nuts but everything came together so beautifully and it's truly a gem of place to stay if you're visiting Richmond. This little room wasn't big enough to be a bedroom, so we turned it into this chic office space. What started off as a "throw away" space ended up being one of my favorite areas in the whole house! Go check out their account @rvabellevuebungalow to book or see more pictures. And if you need any help staging, decorating or shopping for your own home don't hesitate to reach out- I'm officially open for business🎉 (website coming soon🤞🏻)

I've never felt like we have a consistent "style" or "theme" throughout our house. I kinda just buy what I like and can afford and then piece it all together in a way that (at least I think) is cohesive and works. Before Hank was born, people kept asking what the theme of his nursery was and I really had no idea. Neutral modern farmhouse with a touch of boho and vintage glass bottles? 🤷‍♀️
All of that to say, I think it's 100% ok to mix it up! I love a good farmhouse styled home but I also love mid century pieces and California coastal decor. At the end of the day YOU are the one living in your home, so you have to love it! Who cares if everything matches perfectly or not. Honestly I like the juxtaposition of meshing styles together, I think it adds character!

It seems like overnight Hank has gone from my little baby to an independent toddler. It's weird when you feel like the 'new mom' for so long, and then all of a sudden it's you who has the older baby.
Don't get me wrong, I am loving the stage were in but have definitely missed the snuggly newborn phase a lot over the past few weeks.
My mom always told me that time moves so much faster once you become a mother, and now I totally believe it. These babies grow up too fast!

Having built-ins installed in our living room has changed our lives-I know that's *dramatic* but it's true! Living in 890 sq ft means limited space and storage, so having a place to hide baby toys, store extra bedding, tuck away albums and books, etc...has been a game changer for us! Plus we've been able to eliminate bulkier furniture that actually made the room feel smaller than it does now. Swipe right to see the before pic!

(And yes, I totally designed ours after seeing the amazing built ins that @nestingwithgrace has and made ours very similar! As always thanks for the inspo!)

sunflowers make cranky baby days better🌻

Missing the beauty, simplicity and mediterranean air of Santorini today✨ Greece was definitely my favorite vacation to date; I can't wait to go back someday! And this house was uh-mazing! Can I just live here?😍 What's at the top of your bucket list? .

This old dresser was given to me when a neighbor was moving and planned to throw it out. After a little chalk paint, sanding, and some sale-section hardware from @anthropologie it's one of my favorite pieces! DIY projects can be a lot of work, but when you save money and get something you love at the end, it's so worth it!🙌🏻 This antique wooden pail is another treasure that I scored for $5 at a local thrift store. So many treasures out there just waiting to be discovered✨

If you're new here, here's 10 things about me and my little clan:
1) My husband and I were 20 & 21 when we got married in 2013- practically babies! But I gotta say it's working out just fine😉😍
2) The weekend after I graduated college we bought 2 one-way tickets to Southern California and moved out west with no jobs, no stuff, and no place to live. No plans, just lots of dreams✨
3) We ended up living in Laguna Beach, CA for 2.5 years and loved every single millisecond.🏝 4) I learned to love simple, tiny living while we lived out west since we literally brought nothing with us (2 suitcases each). I totally believe that less is more! 🛋
5) In Laguna I worked as a visual merchandiser at a home decor boutique and fell in love with design while working in the industry! I'm still so thankful for the opportunities I was given and all the amazing people I met through that job👯
6) The house we live in now used to belong to a widow and is one mile from where I grew up. As a little girl I rode my horse here and the sweet woman who lived here let me pick her sunflowers!🌻
7) We bought this house on a whim while still living in California, having never been inside before. The first time we walked inside was after our cross-country road trip when we moved home.🚚
8) Buying this place was a huge leap of faith, and just two weeks after closing we found out I was pregnant with Hank! God was taking care of us before we even knew it, He is so good!🏡
9) We hadn't planned on doing any big renovations, but the inside is the house was in much worse condition than we thought. We gutted our entire kitchen and went from DIY newbies to actually learning so much about fixing up a home!🛠
10) I stay at home with our son, and my husband started his own business less than two years ago. We are new home owners, new parents and new business owners- just trying to make it all work somehow!🤷‍♀️ .
Tell me something about YOU!
