A short distance from my home on the pointy end of this Northern Beaches peninsula is the home roost of Sass & Bide co designer Heide Middleton. And if there ever was a style eclectic, this is it.
Enjoying the westerly afternoon sun Heidi's Palm Beach home is an historic monument to Palmie's flambouyant past set with Italianate ballustrading and crazed flooring.
The designer label of Sass & Bide evolved from two jeans stall sellers in Portobello Markets way back in 1999. Heidi Middleton and Sara-Jane Clarke. What a place to start... I recall Richard Branson also held a stall in the very same market in the early 1970's.
