Vintage worn fabrics - I adore them. Ane they have to be natural fibre too - sunbleached lawn cotton, slubby crumpled linens, threadbare silks.

At the moment I am loving this really old Swiss cotton print that I've had hanging around for years. I think my mum had it covering a chair. I have several cuttings of it and and planning some purses..

I love your feedback! If there is a product you think Lilydove should be producing I love to have your opinions!

the simplicity of light

I have fallen in love with this corner of my old french house. At different times of day the light quality has such subtle, beautiful changing nuances. I love to capture it just as it is - no touch ups - nothing.
