A Charming Swedish Orangery Used for Entertaining

The 'staycation' this year has seen a huge a rise of people looking to move out to somewhere they can enjoy a little more space. But we've also been looking to do more with what we have at home too - whether that's carving out private areas for a home office (see yesterday's post!), or building an extension, garden shed, or outhouse. But there's one thing I haven't seen mentioned - and that's an orangery! Technically, an orangery is a room or dedicated building on the grounds of fashionable residences between 17th - 18th century, used to protect fruit trees during the winter - these days it's become something more. Swedish interior and garden stylist, Ulrika Grönlund has built an orangery in the garden of her Malmö home using a mix of old and new.  The white facade gives the structure an air of the med while the wonderful recycled windows and doors offer a nod to the traditional orangery of times gone by. The space serves as a beautiful room in which to entertain, and also somewhere to store less hardy plants during the winter. Ready to feel inspired? 









How beautiful! 

If only we had the space for one of these. I'd love to be able to say, ''please come through to the orangery where dinner is served...''

You can take a tour of the entire Malmö home here (it's for sale.... gaaaah! I need to speak to Per!) and feel inspired by Ulrika's latest interior and garden projects on her instagram @ulrikagronlund1 and website

Could you imagine having an orangery like this in your garden (or future house!)?

    Wow, this looks like something you would normally find in a much warmer climate than Sweden, how absolutely beautiful! So lush, but still so clean and calm! Would LOVE a place like this, but alas, no garden space at all... But maybe at the cabin? Must add it to the longer and longer wishlist...
