Fun Fact: Lydia married in Florence
Lydia Schiavello is honest, self-assured and calls it as she sees it.
A devoted mother of 2 boys, 1 girl and 3 step-children (all boys), she boasts a beautiful home in Malvern and an exclusive holiday home in Thredbo - complete with her own private plane.
Lydia recently married the renowned architect and property investor Andrew Norbury in Florence.
Together, Andrew and Lydia have an active and adventurous lifestyle, with Andrew gaining his pilot’s licence and Lydia currently in the process of getting hers - helping to ensure they can fly Australia-wide at the drop of a hat.
And with a life as jam-packed with discovery and adventure, it’s no surprise the irreverent Lydia’s motto is “Never Give Up, Who Gives Up?”
Not surprisingly, another of Lydia’s passions is interior design - currently making her way through her degree at the distinguished RMIT – which has allowed her to flex her creative muscle and formalise her love of furniture, design and architecture.
But it’s charity where Lydia really shines, giving back to the community whenever she can, including being involved with the prestigious Murdoch Children’s Research Institute.
If that wasn’t enough, Lydia is also an accomplished gourmet chef and a die-hard fashionista to boot – which means her darling Italian greyhound ‘Figaro’ - never leaves home without his very own Burberry coat!
