Winter garden: 10 ideas from decorators

Exotic, dreamy, diaphragm between inside and outside, idyllic projection towards nature. The winter Garden it is a suggestive environment that looks to the past, to the romantics orangerie French of the seventeenth century and to the precious ones greenhouse typical of Victorian England, born to grow plants and citrus fruits even in the cold season.

Sophisticated architectures that have come down to us, in more contemporary reinterpretations, filtered by the taste and skilled hands of decorators, architects and interior designers.

Among the most successful interior solutions is the example of the millennial Castle of Reschio, in Umbria, transformed into a hotel by Count Benedikt Bolza in the dual role of owner and architect, who says: «I worked in a very rare situation. I lived in the castle for years, I knew it from the inside. How many architects does it happen to? When I began to imagine it, I wanted it to give the impression when the work was finished that no one had ever left there, it has always been inhabited ». A suspension in time that Bolza celebrates in the magnificent conservatory of glass and iron, which he imagined and furnished with wicker seats, green velvet sofas and bamboo lanterns custom of oriental inspiration, a magical place to relax, chat or indulge in reading immersed in the lush vegetation.

A touch of décor with a great effect is the wall decoration, which surprises in the trompe-l’œil decoration hand-painted with tempera on the wall, from Pictalab, a decoration workshop in Milan founded by Orsola Clerici and Chiara Troglio, as a Renaissance workshop that transforms the walls into spectacular naturalistic frescoes.

Or like the all-over wallpaper of botanical inspiration, chosen by the interior designer Laura Gonzalez for the Bellefeuille restaurant in the château-hôtel Saint James of Paris, or as in the hand-painted fresco that reproduces a Sicilian citrus grove by Friedmann&Versace for the restaurant Children above the Palais de Tokyo of the French capital.

From a room dedicated to plants and pure relaxation, the winter garden can be declined in a multipurpose environment, such as a culinary workshop-workshop with workbench and shelves with exposed utensils as in this former joinery converted into a loft in Milan, with a dining area in the greenhouse.

A green room that can unexpectedly unfold like one promenade art populated by sculptures, paintings and antiques, as in this house full of paintings and wonders. Or finally as a salotto-dining, with continuous bench to host the people of the heart in an informal way, with large convivial table around which to sit caressed by the plants, or as an intimate conversation corner, organized with chairs in designer wicker, as in the delicate example by India Mahdavi, with mint green walls covered with white lattices, pink velvet poufs and wicker armchairs by Gio Ponti, in a mix of styles and eras for a winter garden with a glamorous touch.
