FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
studio ATARA, founded in 2017 by Creative Director Timna Rose, is a small dynamic interior design studio based in North London, providing it’s residential clients across London & the South East with unique, contemporary eclectic designs, that reflect their varied tastes & budgets. The studio approaches every project with a fresh, open mind and an individually tailored design eye; providing a cohesive backdrop to allow their clients' homes & personalities to shine through.
Eclectic to us is about being inclusive, accessible & diverse, with both style & ideas. Paired with contemporary design principles, we offer cohesive, space enhancing, interesting & pragmatic designs. We put a lot of emphasis on interpreting our clients’ vision also; to identify their true inner, distinctive style. Remaining mindful at all times of the way they live, what they love and what they don't! Working with them to create a home that is stylish, enticing and above-all, truly theirs.
We love to honour the character & stripped back integrity of a building, always leaning heavily towards raw, natural materials and a considered, sustainable approach where possible.
Here at studio ATARA, we imaginatively create original design schemes, with well thought out, practical solutions. Creating and developing the base concept, including space planning, sourcing furniture, lighting & finishes to provide our clients with a complete tender pack. With this, we can also help with the process of appointing trusted building professionals and managing the design side during the build to ensure it adheres to the approved design. Always carefully guiding and working with our clients throughout the whole process.
Over the years, we have built up great working relationships with a wide range of contracting teams, trades & industries, as well as hundreds of suppliers across the world. This enables us to draw on this pool to help select the best collaborators for the job!
If you haven’t worked with a designer before and are considering it, we would be happy to chat through the design process & our transparent fee structure and to hear your thoughts, dreams & vision for your project - with no obligation. We pride ourselves on being approachable & personable, providing a clear & simple service. We base our fee on the scope of work and square meterage. For those looking for ideas or advice, we also offer a consultation service.
We look forward to hearing from you!
A bit about Timna - a successful photographic stylist for 20 years before a change in career 8 years ago, to Interior Design...Studying at the University of Arts London in Chelsea, she then worked in an international design studio based in South London, designing & managing her own projects for several years prior to taking those initial steps towards design autonomy! Firstly by co-creating the highly successful interior design practice Cooley & Rose, alongside fellow designer Nina Cooley before branching out to set up studio ATARA, where she has continued along the same strong design principles & ethos.

"From our first meeting with Studio Atara there was a real alignment of ethos’ and vision, and making the decision to work with them came very naturally. Every aspect of the design throughout was really thoughtful and always linking back to the original brief/concept. They oversaw the entire project from end to end to ensure that the vision was delivered through the relevant contractors, and we couldn’t be more happy with the end result."

"We were so impressed by Studio Atara. Timna and the team took the time to understand our aims and aesthetic preferences, anticipating our asks and inspiring us with a vision we could never have put together ourselves. The end result is accomplished, beautiful and practical and we have felt so well supported throughout the project - nothing was too much to ask! We would highly recommend Studio Atara."

- Client, Clapham 4 bedroom terrace house project -
"Studio Atara were terrific. They excelled at design, working with us as clients to understand our needs / preferences, procurement, and quality control. They oversaw the entire project in collaboration with us as clients, to ensure that the build was in line with their vision and specifications. It was our first time going through a renovation and Studio Atara helped to guide us through the minefield. We felt that we were always treated fairly; their approach is open and kind, trying to accommodate sometimes conflicting ideas from us! We felt that they went "above and beyond" in terms of customer service. Highly recommend"

"We loved working with Timna and Nina. They are very creative, positive, full of energy yet down to earth. Their most impressive quality is the ability to translate customer ideas / requirements (no matter how confusing ....) into stylish, practical and original designs. Definitely recommend" -
- Client, Queen's Park mews house -
"Cooley & Rose are a charmingly talented design duo. From the moment I met them I felt at home with their ideas. They read me like a book but surprised and stretched my horizon in the most compelling way. I had no hesitation in choosing them over the competition to be my design partner on the refurbishment of my riverside apartment."
