Friday Finds...A' La Mode!!!s

Happy Friday Notebook readers!!! 
I would like to welcome this morning Shelli from A' La Mode! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Ya'll!  My name is Shelli and I am so happy Meaghan invited me over today!  I am a former sales rep turned stay at home mommy that has always had a passion for design....on a budget.  I LOVE a good find!  I have a lifestyle blog with an emphasis on design and interiors called a' la mode and hope ya'll stop by sometime!  Now let's get this interview started!

1. What inspires you as a design enthusiast?

I am inspired by design blogs of course!  There are a ton a great images out in blogland to get you motivated!  I also love House Beautiful, Traditional Home and Elle Decor.  A trip through HomeGoods usually does to the trick too!  Amber Interior's blog really helps me get inspired with color!

Amber's dining room!  Isn't it so boho chic and fun?


2. What is your favorite pattern/print currently?  

I am obsessed with anything graphic...imperial trellis is a fav and you can find it all over blog land! I am also loving indian blockprinted fabrics

3. Where do you find your bargains? If so, what have you purchased recently that was a bargain find?

Anyone who knows me at all knows I am OBSESSED with HomeGoods, TJ Maxx and Marshalls.  Check the clearance aisles, you never know what you might find!  My most recent bargain find is a cool club chair for my living room!  Stay tuned to see it in my home!

4. What is your most proud DIY project?

What inspired you to create a piece on your own/what inspired you to fix it up?

 I am a DIY designer.  I may tackle a few little spray paint projects here and there but mostly my interiors are my DIY.  I love to recreate beautiful design in my home on a budget.  If you check out my home tour, you will see all of my rooms designed by yours truly and on a budget- of course!

Thanks for having me Meaghan!  
xoxo, Shelli
