So Summer in Sweden hasn’t been the best this year, which is why it can be nice to be inside but outside at the same time. I’m talking about orangeries and gazebos. It’s becoming more and more popular with these traditional garden buildings. I think it’s so cosy to sit and take a coffee whilst looking out into the hand-planted greenery :)

Facts about orangeries

The word orangery has its roots in the 18th century. Every manor and mansion had a beautiful little building where exotic plants were grown. The most high-status plant was the lemon tree from Italy, and the aristocracy fought to show off their luxury tree collections. In the Summer, the orangery was emptied and it was transformed into a place to hold parties and a gazebo for sensual pleasures :)

How has your Summer been so far…hot or not?

LOVE M

    Vilka mysiga lusthus, särskilt det stora med de vita gardinerna eller vad man ska kalla dem. Perfekt för fika stunder och ett glas vin på kvällarna.
