The home of Paddo to Palmy

I am bringing you today one stunningly beautiful home, owned by Paddo to Palmy founder and creator, Heidi Correa. I first met Heidi in Hong Kong when she moved from Singapore.  Since then, the family has returned to Sydney and upon returning they purchased a beautiful Paddington terrace and a home in Palm Beach. Heidi got to work renovating [...]

Update your home with some Scandinavian style

As much as I support and adore Australian design, it is hard to not be completely smitten with European style.  I have a soft spot for all things Scandinavian and some of the most popular homeware brands hail from Europe - with the Danish being particularly prolific in creating designs that the rest of the [...]

Buying Guide : Fabrics

For regular readers of Lottie is Loving, you will know that I occasionally dabble in a little sewing.  My sewing skills are fairly basic (learnt mainly in Year 9 through my dress making elective which if I remember correctly only ever produced one very dodgy skirt) and I am at my best when I am [...]

Style Guide : Indoor Plants

Following on from my 'practical guide to indoor plants' I thought I would do a post on how to style them.  I don't work as a stylist but I am passing on some tips about what I do in my own home to give some inspiration for what you might like to do in yours. I have [...]

Trending Now : Indoor Plants

After being shunned for many decades as a dusty hippy addition to your home, the humble indoor plant has recently seen a renaissance and shows no sign of slowing down as a hot styling trend for interiors (along with the other 70's throwbacks - macrame and weaving).  It seems you can't have one 70's comeback trend [...]

Home Office Inspiration

Whether you run a business from home or simply need somewhere to organise your paperwork and pay the bills, creating a home office space that is conducive to actually knuckling down and getting your work done is pretty important, and yet it tends to be a fairly neglected area of our homes. I need every incentive [...]

Pretty in Pink

When I was growing up no one had a particularly stylish home, let alone a beautifully styled bedroom, but then again, perhaps that's because I grew up in rural Australia in the 1970's and there wasn't much demand for interior designers and stylists. I shared a room with my sister and we both had brown [...]

Anthropologie Wish List

It's that time of year in Singapore where it seems like everyone is getting ready for an overseas holiday.  The kids have four weeks off school and being a British / Australian family, we always use the mid-year break to visit friends and relatives in the UK.  Our trips 'home' are always busy - we want to [...]

Stonewashed Bedlinen

Horizontal stonewashed linen duvet in 'slate' with pillowcases in 'white', 'grey' and 'rosewood' Nothing beats the feeling (or quite honestly, look) of softly crumpled stonewashed bedlinen.  It makes you want to crawl under the covers and drift away on a blissful sleep in a way that tightly tucked in wrinkle free sateen sheets [...]

Things We Love

Sometimes you just know a home is going to be beautiful by the person who owns it.  I had never visited the home of Things We Love founder Tricia Morahan but I had a pretty good feeling it was going to be lovely if the gorgeous collection of fashion and homewares presented at the Things We [...]
