Vacarda Design is a creative surface design studio, founded and led by Tanya Vacarda in 2018, that specialises in artisan luxury wall coverings, tapestries and decorative artworks with a serious texture appeal.  We use Italian plasters and our own unique technique to create bespoke finishes and products that have the flexibility and mobility a modern and more fluid way of life demands.

 

For us, each project we work on is an exploration of tactility and the aesthetic and therapeutic value of handmade products. We believe that by creating unexpected textural effects with enhanced tactility we can make living spaces healthy, more meaningful and engaging for the senses. Our tactile senses are not often stimulated in the indoor environment; we rarely enjoy the sensations and healing effects that touch can give. The enhanced handmade texture of our pliable plaster finishes invites the simple act of touch and adds another sensory dimension to our interiors. A touch encourages a pause, and a pause is the closest thing to meditation.

Tanya is a life-taught designer-maker, skilled decorative plasterer and a creative powerhouse. She began decorating walls at the tender age of five when she decided to paint the wallpaper in her bedroom, much to her mother’s surprise. Since then, Tanya’s passion for decorating interior spaces and bespoke surfaces has only grown stronger, earning her Remodelista’s Best Interior Design award in 2017. In 2018, after a series of successful interior projects and personal earthquakes, she founded the Studio with the aim of creating an alternative surface covering product that respects and builds upon the traditional craftsmanship yet is adaptable and responsive to the modern dynamic ways of life.
