THE MODERN ARTISANS

We believe that genuine craftsmanship is about being honest and authentic, and we cherish every mark of our hands, the little perfect “imperfections”. We hope you will do too.

ARTISAN PLASTER, EASY

Honing our craft is our true passion. We have perfected our skills over the years of practice so you can have naturally tactile designs without the trouble of time-consuming and messy installations.

Only 1mm thick, our ready-to-order textures are handcrafted with authentic Venetian plasters, hand-painted, and hand-cut, and yes! you can remove it, so your landlord can have peace of mind.

EXPERIENCE, MAKE IT LAST

Mindfulness is at the heart of our practice. From materials to finishes, we aim to provide wall art that gives more. We use plaster mixes that are durable and easy to care for.

 

Unlike many other wallcoverings, our textures can be re-used. Simply, apply them to any solid surface, even curved walls, move it around (with the right adhesive), creating new looks, or add your own spin onto it by transforming it into your own piece of art. Cut it, stitch it, reinvent it.

 

We take pride in our craft, and we want it to be part of your story, whichever way you use it.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

Our designs are carefully curated to work together, offering endless possibilities for your home. Get creative, mix and match our textures to build a unique art look with just a few pieces. From a statement framed art piece to a panelled wall look, let it change and expand over time just as your space does.

 

Follow your impulse to create the beauty around you in your way, these impulses make us who we are. And if you’re stuck for ideas, we’ve got plenty. Just visit our product shop galleries to get inspired.

Oh, Those Curves...

Curves and arches have been popping up in interior design and furniture for some time. Now, the shapes are more relaxed and organic, which follows the overall shift towards more naturalistic and feminine interiors. Soft, clean curves on walls easily balance and soften any space. This trend is here to stay for quite some time.

All Things Natural

This interior trend is getting rooted in our homes together with a shift toward more balanced and mindful living. Honest materials, calm, nature-inspired colours and textures, soft natural shapes and greenery are the elements that revitalise a space and create grounded, soothing energy at home. Be sure this trend is not going anywhere any time soon.

OUR STORY

Established by Tanya Vacarda in 2018, Vacarda Design is a creative surface design studio in Northern Ireland. Simply, we create textures - exquisite, naturally tactile, made with authentic Italian plaster in our own techniques.

 

We believe we are good at it because we love what we do and so do our clients, who come from all parts of the world, like Canada, USA, Switzerland, Belgium, Hong Kong, Dubai and, of course, Ireland and London…
