Using antique furniture, designer Erika Winters brings fresh life and beauty to different parts of a house belonging to a couple of newly-weds.
“I like classic furniture, with its history and all the stories it can tell. For this project, the choice of furnishings and textiles was defined by the age of the occupants. So I went for curved lines with stripped patterns to reflect my clients’ lightheartedness.
“Some of the furniture used is of my own design, reinvented with new colors and finishes to suit the ad-hoc lifestyle of its new owners”, says Winters.
Three sofas dating back to the 1940s take pride of place in the living room. The gold-colored tacks on the armrests give a retro feel to the room.
