Daisy Lowe glamping in a Yurt Beautiful !


Gorgeous Vogue cover model Daisy Lowe, best known for her dazzling smile and heart of gold, asked her artist designer friend Sonya Rothwell, founder of luxury design house Gallery Beautiful and winner of this year’s ‘Best Luxury Interior Accessories Award’ Build Magazine, to decorate her tent at Yurtel, an off-site boutique camp whose guests go to Glastonbury Festival.

Delighted by the challenge Sonya Rothwell conjured something suitably bohemian, feminine and magical. Forty meters of digital waterproof fabric, 20 meters of coloured linen, 5 miles of stitches, 75 hand made tassels and hand printed holographic stars, ultra chic soft furnishings, tons of butterflies, tropical plants and orchids later … Yurt Beautiful came to life.

Daisy Lowe loved it;

“Sonya really worked her magic. The gorgeous yurt was soooo beautiful and comfortable. It was an absolute joy to stay in!!”

Sonya Rothwell wrapped Daisy’s yurt in her Moksha Anise outdoor fabric, mirroring the iconic external roof ‘star’ on the inside in the same design to create a canopy feel, which she then draped in ivy and butterflies echoing the butterfly cushions on the bed for ‘cosmic jungle’ vibes.

Sonya said; “I wanted the yurt to feel calm and simple but stylish and playful – to be a tranquil haven to come back to. Lying on the bed looking up at the wooden sky light festooned with a celestial canopy, butterflies and vines was really special.”

Central St Martins alumna Sonya Rothwell’s award-winning designs are derived from her celestial oil paintings that she creates by 'cosmosis' – subtly absorbed minglings with universal forces. Being a nomadic free-spirit ever in search of colour & culture, Sonya regularly veers off the beaten track for time out to also journey within – the source of her inspiration. Her elegant Gallery Beautiful interior pieces are ethical, sustainable and made to order using eco inks, so she’s thrilled by the recent focus on Earth issues at festivals worldwide.

Yurtel claims to be the most luxurious, sophisticated festival camping experience in Britain and they’re not wrong. Their effortless style and attention to detail is second to none. From their cool wristbands by bag designer Sophie Anderson, 24 hour concierge service, house keeping, fresh daily linen, gorgeous showers and fabulous restaurant to the gin bicycle and Bloody Mary nurses guests want for nothing. Daisy Lowe particularly loved the fresh flowers and goodie boxes in each room containing ear plugs, eye mask, plasters, lantern, glow sticks and rain cagoule (thankfully not needed this time!).

Daisy adored the whole luxury glamping experience – her yurt, decorated by her friend Sonya Rothwell, couldn’t have been more beautiful. Daisy Lowe said; “the people were so lovely and they had the best food” – by heavenly wellness chef Jasmine Hemsley, who’s also Daisy’s friend. As too is lovely Lisa Caldogetto who was doing hair, make up, braids and glitter in the Bouffantary, so she definitely felt the love all round.
