As a Winnipeg interior decorator, a visit to Old House Revival can be one of my favorite ways to spend a rainy afternoon.

Old House Revival consists of 3 floors, brimming to the top with antiques. Antiques consist of dining sets, clothing, dishes, lamps, signs, doors, etc.  All from different eras.    old house revival entrance

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.
