Feature Friday: a’ la mode

I am so incredibly excited about this Feature Friday today! I am featuring the beautiful home of Shelli who writes the blog a’ la’ mode
This is how she describes her design style.
 I am drawn to an eclectic mix of traditional furnishings and clean lines.  I love pops of color but on a calm and serene base palette.  I want there to be history in my space mixed with new, fresh furnishings.  I want the walls to speak about me and my family.  Where have we traveled?  What do we cherish?  Very rarely is there a wall hanging in my home with no story to tell.  I have an addiction to random chairs and I struggle with where to put them all.  My favorite pieces in my home are the large Ethiopian cross from my travels to Kenya and the gallery hall of my sweet girl her first year of life.  It is right outside her nursery.  We play a game every morning called ‘who’s that baby?’  She melts me.  

I love her striped sofa!

    After reading Shelli's description of her style I couldn't wait to see what her home looked like. I was not disappointed, it's fab-u-lous! It's obvious that she put her heart into creating a personalized space.

    I have been following Shelli's blog for a while and she sure has great taste! I started to take note of her blog when I saw how beautifully she put together her daughter's first birthday party! Her home is beautiful!

    How elegant and fresh with touches of unique craetions throughout! I would love to live in a house with ceilings as high as the ones in the first few rooms you feature – what a feeling of space and opulence that creates! Love this! Thanks for sharing. Alison
