peacock_roomWe are the lucky owners of Tatiana’s amazing wall art called Vintage Paradise. This piece is so beautiful that we can’t even bring ourselves to call it wall paper – it is simply a high-quality painting. We engaged Tatiana to create a piece for a large spot in our house cum vineyard. The experience of working with her could not have been more pleasant and rewarding. After a short phone conversation and reviewing a few pictures, she presented several designs that incorporated many elements that were dear to us.  Tatiana totally nailed it with the Vintage Paradise theme that captured a certain “look”,  including our beloved Canary Palm, the signature entrance to the Bear Keeper Vineyard and the fabled Sonoma peacock. The painting itself has a dreamy quality – blending the realism of the vineyard with the make-belief charm of yester year. The shimmering colors also capture a special quality of the California sun. We are thrilled with the outcome and can’t recommend Tatiana enough to her prospective clients. We are confident that no matter now ambitious your projects are, her art will exceed your expectations!

Ruta wall painting by TaniaI have a beautiful home in a popular San Francisco area where the daily traffic exceeds that of Golden Gate Bridge.  Although the house had many aspects that I loved, it was lacked the flavor and artistic touch that it deserved. I had searched online for ideas and samples and finally stumbled upon Actual Design & Decor website. After contacting Tatiana and showing her pictures of my home, she offered me many useful tips and ideas. We discussed the idea of incorporating her wall coverings into different rooms and within a few months I had my dinning room and kitchen transformed. The handcrafted wall paper is the most beautiful addition to a room that anyone could hope for. Not only did the rooms appear to have a different sense of light but also acquired a whimsical and enchanting quality that no other paint or wallpaper could have achieved.  I have entertained a number of times since having the wall coverings installed and have had a constant stream of inquiries as to who produced them.  I am looking forward for more from Tatiana – my living room and bedroom are next!

muralAs an interior designer, Tatiana Mandel is a special resource for me. She is able to create wallcoverings and murals that I can uniquely specify for each of my clients. Tatiana welcomes the individuality of the process and is able to adapt to any style that fits my clients’ decor. She has an expert handle on perspective drawing and color. Although I am in California, Tatiana and I have no problem in communicating or bringing our project to fruition. She is a delight to work with and I highly recommend her.
