At Home In New Jersey With Mama Of (Almost) 3, Sade Llits

If you love old homes, today’s profile is for you. Born-and-bred New Yorker Sade Llits decamped for New Jersey four years ago, after craving more space for her children to roam and finding a 185-year-old colonial home on the market. Up on a hill, surrounded by trees is where she currently raises her two kids (Sage, 5, and Ollie, 2) in their 2,000-square-foot stunner. The young family—who are welcoming their newest member this spring—has completely made the space their own, with a mix of vintage, thrifted, and new furnishings and artwork that give the historic property loads of personality.

You can check out the space in our slideshow below, as well as hear about Sade’s journey to motherhood, including her most recent pregnancy. We discuss her career (“My career is my children! But that was my choice, I sacrificed myself, career, and goals for my family.”), the ups and downs of pandemic parenting, and her self-care habits during pregnancy—including incorporating the breakthrough, plant-based iron supplement Ferritin+ into her routine.

For a limited time, MOTHER readers can try Ferritin+ at 15% off!
