we all need a place to put our orange trees during the winter months. well, it might not be an absolute necessity, but it sure is chic. especially this orangery in dallas, featured in the most recent veranda magazine, with interiors designed by cathy kincaid and architecture by j.wilson fuqua.

if i was going to have an orangery, and believe me, one someday is definitely on my list, it would mostly look similar to this. i love the architectural details, the fabulous windows, the mix of french antiques with mckinnon and harris iron furniture, the skirted dining table sitting pretty under a large charles edwards lantern…

…and the best part, maybe besides the color palette of blue and white, is the smell of citrus and the garden view. we all need an orangery, especially one as chic as this.
