The Story of a Grandiose Location
The Atelier has the function of adding synergy to both the decorative and pictorial aspects of our creative designs, aiding in the acquisition and application of techniques for creating visually appealing and incredibly astounding decorative interiors. It is a place where methods, techniques as well as the use of such materials as including pigments, fabrics, colors, plastic materials for forming, polystyrene and other tools for specific decorative effects are acquired.
The operative part of our projects at Venice Décor are realized in our well-equipped laboratory. This is the place where the requests of our customers are brought to life, thanks to the skills, competencies and experience of our Venetian artisans.
The preparative part begins with drawings and sketches, with each decorative element carefully studied and tailored to match the unique style of each individual customer.
Our strategy is to start by analyzing the target audience and creating a solution-based design in the light to enhancing a home’s best attribute in such a way as to personalize the its interiors using the classical or modern decoration techniques based on the requisition of those who live in it.
Materials and Colors
Since our arrival on the scene in 1991, the Venetian Art School has worked hard to capture and intrigue the art community the world over with beautiful colors and materials. Gathering much of their inspirations from the environment and cultures around the world, our team of artisans take the idea of linear perspective and naturalistic arts to a whole new level.
Understanding Paint Made With Natural Pigments
Natural pigments come from a wild array of sources from pregnant beetles to precious stones. When used as paint they offer a natural palette of harmonious colours, especially in comparison to the synthetic look of chemical pigments. Natural pigments are your oxides, cadmiums, carbons, ochres, and siennas. Natural pigments can be very expensive because created from expensive sources – like carbon black made from charred wood, Cadmium red is made by baking cadmium metals. When you add the synthetic/chemical pigments, the colors it stays very intense but not natural and real.
This is a key difference between natural and synthetic colours.
Although painting techniques improved immeasurably during the Renaissance, the Renaissance palette mirrored that of the Medieval Age but for three pigments: Naples yellow, smalt and carmine lake (cochineal). Other reds were vermilion and madder lake, which brought to Europe by crusaders in the 12th century.
The Renaissance color palette also featured realgar and among the blues azurite, ultramarine and indigo. The greens were verdigris, green earth and malachite; the yellows were Naples yellow, orpiment, and lead-tin yellow. Renaissance browns were obtained from umber. Whites were lead white, gypsum and lime white, and blacks were carbon black and bone black.
Venice Décor is the only company in the world to have cataloged and studied every single color of the palette. Every color has been recreated in the laboratory through the ancient medieval and renaissance technique, more than 1200 colors complete our precious collection.
