An Experienced Team
Oca Studio opened in Ponte Vedra Beach in late 2017. We are excited to bring our experience and appreciation of contemporary style to the First Coast. Oca Studio is our second location after Hogar in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Hogar, open since 1993 is the destination for interior designers, architects and discerning shoppers. It is known for its unparalleled home accessories and outstanding client services. Oca Studio in Ponte Vedra is guided by the same principles of offering exceptional quality products with high style and service to a discerning clientele.
Taciana & Marcio Paulino
- Designer, Owner
Taciana and Marcio Paulino moved to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, six years ago with their two children. Originally from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, the Paulinos have made quite a name for themselves back home with their first retail store, Hogar, which opened in 1993. With over 25 years of success, Hogar has become one of the most sought-after places among Brazilian designers and architects for its distinguished style, reputation, and worldly appeal. While continuing to run their business in Brazil, Taciana earned her bachelor’s degree in interior design from the Art Institute of Jacksonville. Shortly after, Oca Studio opened its doors to the Ponte Vedra Beach area in 2017. With their second retail store, the Paulinos expanded their style and selections by adding lighting, rugs, and furniture sourced from around the globe while including some of the same home accents found at Hogar. The Paulinos hope by making contemporary style accessible to the greater northeast Florida, Oca Studio will also become a go-to hub for local designers and architects.
