ON MY MIND: ORANGES

This image of the Cole and Son wallpaper Orange Blossom Seville hit me the other day as I opened a copy of House and Garden magazine. I instantly wished I had a little breakfast room in the house that I could use this in. So fresh and cheery! Love the vertical repeat of the design and that little lattice across the stems.

Then John Tanner posted this image of freshly picked oranges displayed against his collection of green glazed crockery. There is something about the bright orange together with that glossy deep green, so delicious!

Mini orangery from Belgian Pearls Blog via Poshpedlar. And I’m thinking that whilst I wait for the house with the breakfast room, perhaps I can stretch to an orange tree? I remember my grandmother always used to have citrus trees in her flat, they were so exotic and beautiful and of course, the fruits irresistible to a child no matter how many times I was told not to pick them. I currently have zero house plants but maybe now that we are at home more than ever, it is the right time to start?
