Tablescape Heaven

Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2015 show was divine in every possible way. Obviously the clothes were beautiful, but what really got us were the decadent, gorgeous tablescapes placed throughout the Salzburg themed backdrop [think Sound of Music meets Chanel]. It’s our ultimate inspiration for our holiday table this year. We have ILINKA Collection hand-stitched white linen tablecloths on standby!

Bailey’s Got Soul

We fell even deeper in love with Burberry Prorsum’s “Bloomsbury Girls” Autumn/Winter 2014 collection at a Sotheby’s private exhibition recently, where Christopher Bailey’s dreamy creations were shown among Brian Ferry’s personal collection of Bloomsbury art. The hand-painted brushstroke shapes and patterns on the bags, shoes and ethereal dresses were all inspired by Charleston, the country home of artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, where they painted enchanting murals and shapes across the walls, mantles, doors and their canvases. Bailey’s vision for this collection was to be “Soulful” – by far this is one of the most moving fashion collections we’ve seen lately…already set a date to visit Charleston and the Burberry store. Feeling truly inspired!

Swan Somethings

After a recent weekend away in the English countryside where our house looked out onto a lake full of black and white swans, the fascination with these beautiful creatures lead to the discovery that they symbolise an abundance of positivity: Love, Balance, Beauty, Grace, Peace, Tranquility, Longevity and are even thought to be a good omen – bringing wealth and prestige when you stumble upon them.  It’s not a surprise considering no matter how often you catch a glimpse of one, they still manage to strike you with their elegance and beauty.  In honour of the majestic bird, this post is dedicated to all things swan inspired…

Quelle Joie!

ILINKA-Quelle-Joie

Quelle Joie! (“What Joy!”) ILINKA Collection was born from that exact feeling of the happiness one should feel when they relax into their bed after a long day. Why not enjoy and look forward to those daily moments that make a world of a difference if we love what we see, feel and touch?

ILINKA Collection was created to make bedtime blissful, your bath stylishly comfortable and mealtimes beautiful. We are inspired by the simple pleasures in life that make your everyday moments extra special.
