At home in Paris with Artist and Designer Heidi Middleton, along with her daughters Elke Bay and India Grace, for a story I shot for Moda Familia.

It was such a pleasure stepping into Heidi Middleton’s wonderful new world in Paris. Walking into her light-filled, chic 8th arrondissement apartment,  is like stepping into a dream world filled with treasures, collages and incredible vintage pieces.  Heidi, whom I have known for many years, seems to have completely come into her own and adopted her Paris lifestyle with such elegance that I left the day so inspired and enriched, I wondered if a relocation to France may be on the cards.

With her young family settled by the beach in Sydney, Heidi Middleton didn’t imagine she’d be leaving the neighbourhood anytime soon. But Paris soon came calling, bringing with it the promise of new adventures and intoxicating inspiration. Now, as she embarks upon a shift in creative direction, the sass & bide co-founder and mother of two, gives us a peek into her wonderful new world – Paris, je taime!

“We were fortunate to find a wonderful apartment, a blank canvas, near the Champs Élysées with parks and greenery, and we fell in love. The furniture, like my fashion style, is a mix of different genres and eras. I visited Clignancourt markets every week and ended up customising a lot of pieces and also painting things white, so ultimately there is a mix of old and new, antiques and modern. The flea markets are a big indulgence for me.”
