As a Winnipeg interior decorator, a visit to Old House Revival can be one of my favorite ways to spend a rainy afternoon.
The staff at the store seem to have categorized the antiques according to the era they were produced. Many memories of my childhood came racing back as I observed many things from my grandparents and parents homes that are now considered antiques. When I found myself in the 1970s section of the store I could not resist the temptation to buy 4 green, floral glasses from that time period. I fondly remember drinking cool aid from similar glasses.
Vintage water glasses are a personal favorite of mine to collect. I love the patterns, and often the quality of the glass seems to be far superior to many produced today.
One of the projects I am currently working on is a cottage. As a Winnipeg interior decorator, I look for inspiration for each project. Some unique item that is important and loved by the client. Whether it is furniture, a painting, an area rug, etc. Every project needs a starting point.
The inspiration for the interior design of the cottage is a vintage 1940s chair. So for this project, a visit to the 1940s area of the store was a must. Currently I am looking for a 1940s antique lamp that will act as a statement piece for the decor.
No luck today finding that special item, so I will have to keep coming back to the store in hopes in finding exactly what I am looking for. It will be a pleasure to return to this unique store filled with so many items from the past. Old House Revival, well worth the trip.
