The Orangery

Dael & I are getting ready to open the doors to our new Bibby + Brady office/showroom. It's a tiny black building and we're trying to decide what to plant in the tiny garden at the front. We both love luscious greenery against black and white buildings, and I've come across an amazing example of this colour scheme.

Swedish designer and entrepreneur, Agneta Enzell, designed this space for her and her family, they call it "The Orangery". Surrounded by windows, it's drenched in light and is a cross between a home and a greenhouse. The plants seem to thrive in the environment, both indoor and out.

The space is available year round, but it's used mostly in summer for relaxing and entertaining with friends and family. The black and white colour scheme continues inside where the decor is practical and low maintenance.

Black stained raised beds are filled with edible goodies for fresh, delicious meals. Even the plant markers tie in with the theme - black ice block sticks with white names - it's all in the details! Isn't this is a great space?!
