We are so thrilled to share our latest home tour of the sweet as can be Myka Haddad of Modern Sequins! Myka is such a genuine and kind soul, I was lucky enough to meet her when I was looking for an event planner for my own wedding and she was a part of Sitting in a Tree. She made me feel so at ease with the process, I knew she would be the perfect fit for me! Since then she has been working on her fabulous blog Modern Sequins and also creating gorgeous floral and plant arrangements with Brown Paper Design & The Plant Library. We are such big fans of her own personal style that we had to take a peak inside her San Francisco home with husband Georges. This couple is so darn cute, take a look at them and you can see why we fell in love with them!

What inspired you when decorating your home?
Since our home is small, I really believe in keeping everything bright and light colored. White is such a soothing color to me, so I try to keep that aesthetic in our home. I also love showing off small personal items in our home. Fresh lavender from my mom’s garden, a painting by my mother-in-law, a small white figurine from a trip to Spain. I like to display items that tell a story about our lives.
Where are your favorite places to shop for your home?
I used to be in the interior design world, so I totally lucked out on getting discounts on a lot of designer stuff that we have in our home. But now, I’m definitely on a budget. I mostly shop at West Elm, Target, and consignment stores.
What in your home screams “Myka”?
Is decorating your home a collaborative effort with your husband?
Well I love modern design which is definitely shown in our choice of furniture. I also like to add in fun elements, like those fringed baskets (a recent bargain purchase from Target). I’m a bargain shopper at heart.
