OUR NEW PAINT RANGE - SEP 2019
MOVING INTO OUR NEW STUDIO - SPRING 2019

It is with great pride & joy, we introduce our very first, studio ATARA paint range. The accumulation of nearly 3 years of hard work, grit, determination, love & devotion - from initial conception & inspiration mining, progressing onto approvals, with tweaks, tweaks & more tweaks!

Finally the collection is here:

MERAKI

ME-RA-KI; 

To do something with soul, creativity or love; to put something of yourself into your work.

Our paint range was born out of Meraki. 

In our eternal search for the perfect paint colour for our projects, we turned to fabrics, stones, images from a magazine or a double-take at tiles on the underground - here we found our inspiration for this, our first collection.

We hope you love it as much as we do!

Naming the paints was particularly good fun. With a nod to the people & places dear to us, we paid homage to friends & creatures no longer with us; nick-names from yore and reference points from our youth, with some comedy gold moments & a most loveable bear :)

Big appreciation goes out to Nina Cooley, my original studio partner 🧡, for starting on this journey with me & handing over the baton; to all my family, friends and colleagues who supported me, as I continued to develop the vision until everything was finally ready for the collection to go out into the world!

Also to our clients past, present and future for giving us the inspiration & vision to create the perfect paint colours for their projects. This was the overriding inspiration for our paint range.

Saving the best till last, the biggest thanks is saved for our wonderful collaborators, Simon & Clare Tilbrook of Fenwick & Tilbrook Fine Paints,  for their unwavering support, efforts and patience! It's been a bit of a journey but we are so delighted with the outcome - Thank You!

Crafted by Fenwick & Tilbrook, designed & curated by studio ATARA, this palette brings together a contemporary collection of 20 base & statement colours for the eclectic home.

NEW STUDIO - SPRING 2019

Sitting comfortably in our top floor 'bijou' start up space, we were unexpectedly given the opportunity to move to larger premises on the ground floor. Slightly reticent about making such a big step, we took the bull by the horns, did a major clear up and set about transforming the tired office space into our very own design haven.

 

With fabulously tall ceilings, large bright windows on 3 aspects, it has become the thing design dreams are made of. It has given us plenty of room to design, think, store our ever expanding reference & samples libraries and generally get creative. We are all so happy to be here!
