I have never really been into yoga (or piña coladas, or getting caught in the rain), but since I met Natalie Wells, of luxury wallcovering supplier Isla & Eden, I’ve had to give it a bit more thought.
As a purveyor of fine wallcoverings, Isla & Eden is built on a philosophy of authenticity, contemporary timelessness and mindful luxury. I’m not going to pretend that I didn’t look up the definition of mindfulness. It is a word I have heard used in a variety of contexts but I’m not actually sure what it means.
As well as co-founding Isla & Eden, Natalie Wells teaches kundalini yoga. Often known as ‘the yoga of awareness’, it’s easy to see how Natalie’s passion for kundalini yoga has influenced Isla & Eden.
Isla & Eden provide easy access to luxury wallcoverings, from brands such as Fromental, De Gournay, Pierre Frey and Élitis, that were previously only available to interior designers and industry professionals. This allows the customer to focus purely on the beauty and quality of the product.
Having a background in luxury interiors products, I’ve seen how the convoluted purchasing process (often involving two or three ‘middle-men’) can cloud judgement when making final choices. It’s inspiring to see how Natalie’s yoga has influenced the way she does business and how it allows her customers to make more mindful decisions.
I’m a big fan of statement wallcoverings and beautiful colours in the home. Natalie Wells has curated a gorgeous selection of brands, and I have definitely picked out some favourites from their latest collections. Right at the top of my list is Fromental’s Floribunda chinoiserie in the kilburn colourway.
