I may not know you but, I bet I know you. You want your home to be beautiful. Fresh. Trendy. But, not too trendy. You want it to have a cohesive lasting design yet, inclusive of items that are meaningful to your family. Maybe a bit eclectic & reflective of your family's story. You want to walk in and LOVE the space that is most sacred to you...HOME! At the same time, you want your home to be warm and welcoming. Cozy and comfortable. Casual and functional for real life. A kitchen to cook in. A family room to be lounge in. Bedrooms to be dreamt in. Bathrooms to find peace in...:-).
See, I get it. You want your home to be a place where the chaos of life slows down. A beautiful place. Where a beautiful life is lived. And, the story of your family is written in.
The approach to interior design & styling by Beautiful Chaos™ is just that.
Beautiful and casual spaces that are individually inspired by the families they are created for. The logistical process to our interior design services is just as casual as our creative approach. We start our relationship off with an initial in-home consultation. Together, we create a personalized service plan adapted from your project needs. Services are simply billed out at an affordable hourly rate and merchandise is never marked up. Never. The goal is to get you the very most possible with your hard earned money. Let's have fun, while we make chaos beautiful!! 🙂

Eleven chaotic years ago, beautiful things happened. Sarah started doing the interior design for her family's contracting company AND her & Jayme's first baby was born. As life as a momma began, so did a CRAZY passion for creating beautiful spaces. Sarah decided to "shelf" the plans of becoming a marriage & family counselor (though that education does come into play with some client situations ;)) and jump feet first into every kind of home improvement project. Through eight years of learning the family trade, she realized her designing and remodeling genes were indeed inherited. She loved all aspects, including the final touch of styling.
As any chaotic story goes, it's not always rainbows and butterflies. Sarah and Jayme had more babies and life got very real when their third, and only daughter, was born. Their sweet baby girl went through two years of chronic illness that required Sarah to be nothing other than momma & wife during that time. It was a time of seclusion to home as to avoid triggers that would make their baby girl very sick. This is when Sarah truly realized how important HOME truly was.
She found out how badly she wanted her own home to be a beautiful refuge AND functional for real life.
After their daughter gained health, one more baby was added to the Martin brood. The family dynamics had returned to a new normal...chaos...beautiful chaos!! It was then that allowed Sarah to continue on with her passion. But, it was very different this time. Starting Beautiful Chaos™ meant so much more than creating beautiful spaces...
"I want to be that friend — the one who is invited into your home, your most sacred place. I want to show you how we can make it just as beautiful as your precious family. And, to encourage you...to love this life. This chaotic life that never really is "perfect." There will always be different seasons...see the beauty in all of it & love the ones that God has given you." XO!

Our gal Kate comes to the Beautiful Chaos fam with many multifaceted talents! Kate helps lead the office organizational efforts to help minimize the ‘chaos’ and maximize the ‘beautiful.’
Her past years of experience wrangling (teaching!) thousands of secondary & elementary students as well as working in small businesses to help create streamlined processes as an operations manager and financial analyst in accounting, means she is ready for anything. She says she feels a bit like an elf at Christmas when she gets to help ensure the customer materials and selections process goes smoothly from start to finish which includes seeing all the beautiful things!
The most rewarding part of the process for her has been building relationships (friendships!) and helping the team achieve their goals. In addition to this, she has lived through the Beautiful Chaos renovation process in her own home, giving us insight into the overall process from your perspective. Outside of the chaos, she enjoys being active outdoors, especially if that includes her two pups and hubby!
