For over 20 years, interior designer Charmaine Werth has dedicated her career to designing visionary spaces exuding function, elegance and innovation. A professionally-accredited interior designer, her true skill lies in a unique ability to meet the needs of her clients, while respecting and understanding the visions of the architect, engineer, and the accountant. Currently based in Antigua, she has a comprehensive and diverse portfolio having managed design projects for hotels, restaurants, ambassadors, heads of state, ministers of government, banks, medical providers, private residences and retail outlets.
Born in the island of Grenada and raised in Antigua, Werth studied interior design at Miami International University of Art & Design where she met her husband Kerry, an architectural designer .
Nostalgic for her life in the Caribbean where interior design services had not fully evolved, Charmaine recognized an opportunity to fill a much-needed niche for interior design in the region. Her bold and expressive style was quickly respected allowing her to design projects in Antigua, Anguilla, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Miami, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, Tortola, and Turks and Caicos.
She works in tandem with her husband Kerry to draw upon the region's uniqueness and diversity to offer an inspiring contemporary reinterpretation of Caribbean design. Although, she enjoys contemporary, and her modernist style is evident in much of her work, her true love leans towards warm uplifting undertones characteristic of the Caribbean. Island Life Magazine aptly describes her work as “relaxed elegance with bold shots of color and texture, and expressive lighting with attention to art.”
Her daughters have inherited artistic genes as well: her eldest Kierstyn is an author and illustrator now residing in Cambodia, and the youngest, Yensa, is a professional photographer.
