North of The Netherlands, is where you will find this little old farm in Workum. This countryside farmhouse has now been renovated into a beautiful family home. We love the warm rustic elements of the home mixed with hints of modern scandi design. The use of light timbers, concrete and streamline modern furnishings work in contrast with the mint green feature walls and an array of mismatched and vintage furniture, crockery and relics. Finally, no farmhouse would be complete without a fireplace and a wood-burning stove.

MBFW 2015 | Daniel Avakain x

Last week Daniel Avakain showcased his SS 15/16 presentation at MBFW in Sydney with a beautiful collection of elegantly tailored designs. We were lucky enough to supply Daniel’s runway show with our ‘High Gladiator Sandals’ from the upcoming SS 15 collection. Take a look at the beautiful collection matched with the sandals below. A perfect pairing in our opinion!

You can purchase the High Gladiator Sandals in both the Havana Cuba or Black suede on a special pre release online only at ilovelilya.com or the sandals will be available in stores and online again in August.

While we head into the cooler months, it does have us daydreaming of the warmer weather north of the equator. Stockholm based stylist and fashion director of StyleBy Magazine, Columbine Smille, is a master of vacation dressing. A holiday uniform made up of loose kaftans, slide on sandals and sunglasses, all that is really left is a tan and a drink in hand.
