Introduction to Orangerie and Blue

Tufenkian Inverness rug
The name is inspired by my foyer which reminds me of a little orangerie -- a sunshine-filled space with lots of windows, orange-yellow walls and potted plants, including my favorite Meyer lemon tree in its pot (blue, of course) -- a favorite color, especially shades of french blue, peacock blue and aqua.
