Paddo to Palmy the blog was born when Heidi and her family embarked on a year long renovation of their family home in Paddington. Instead of renting they decided to move up to their holiday house at Palm Beach. Having just returned from a 7 year stint in Asia Heidi struggled with the design scene in Sydney – where to find the best and most reasonably priced tiles? Wall lights? Linen curtains? Heidi figured that other people in the same renovation process would find this information helpful. The blog amongst other things reveals the many gorgeous suppliers Heidi used in her renovation as well as showcasing Heidi’s love for unique and inspiring interiors.
So why the Paddo to Palmy shop? From a young age Heidi has been obsessed with interiors; from the age of 8 Heidi accompanied by her Mum would scour local markets and antique stores hunting for treasure.
Fast forward to 2013, Heidi now a Mum of two (Ella 6 and Gigi 3) accompanied by her hubby Michael made the pilgrimage to Morocco in search of the perfect rug...Heidi could not stop at just one rug she fell head over heels in love with the rugs vibrant colours & abstract patterns - she figured others would too!
All of the rugs selected are Vintage and have been selected for their high quality wool as well as having unique colours and motifs which all contribute to the rugs overall value.
Heidi also curated a collection of handmade ceramics, cushions, placemats and blankets that feature her signature use of bright colours and love for pom pom’s!
