Paradise by Way of Kensal Green

January 26, 2015

On Saturday I popped into Fare Healthy, a health, food and fitness event held at Paradise by Way of Kensal Green. It was a collective approach to training body, mind and soul with talks and demonstrations from the leading ladies of the health food world – The Hemsley + Hemsley sisters, Ella Woodward and Natasha Corrett.

I’ve heard the ladies speak before and own the Hemsley sisters book, which is a must. This week see’s the release of the much anticipated Deliciously Ella book which I’m looking forward to receiving.

What is even more fascinating is the space that is Paradise by Way of Kensal Green. I first visited this space when I attended one of Ella Woodward’s supper clubs. That evening we stayed in the downstairs restaurant space. Yesterday saw every nook being used with activities, stands and demonstrations going on throughout the whole space. A bar, gastro pub restaurant, dance space, hip hangout, the eclectic décor in this shabby chic establishment is really worth the hype.

You’ll find a plethora of larger and more intimate spaces, all rather dark and moody and here is a selection of some examples of decor.

A big bouquet of silk flowers really stood out.

There’s an array of cages willed with taxidermy species.

A nice little touch to an otherwise empty room.

The detail to moody lighting is second to none here. Rather in love with this globe.

Big, bold chandeliers adorn the staircase areas.

A bit of glitter always works its magic.

I took particular liking to these indian figurines hanging from the ceiling.

There were many more interesting décor ideas around but the lack of light and massive amount of people swirling around the event made it quite impossible to take more photographs.

If you’re thinking of holding an event or a party, this is definitely the place.

    Looks like a venue filled with character and mood. The health, food and fitness event sounds interesting, always so much to learn in this area. Pete Evans is going gangbusters here with his paleo teachings. xx

      The venue is great but like with all these places, you have to be there to experience it and photography does it no justice.

      Yes, these girls are in full force taking over the ‘healthy eating’ scene. My preferred way of eating is Paleo
      so I would LOVE to go and listen to Pete Evans talk.

      Yes, it actually was.
      Today I got Ella’s book (came out yesterday)
      Super healthy and delicious.

      Aww, thank you. The lighting in there was awful.

    Certainly a kooky & quirky space filled with curios. I like some of what they have to show on their website too. Thanks for sharing xo
