I had never even seen an indoor citrus plant until about six years ago, even though the practice of growing them indoors was quite common as far back as Victorian winters. When I saw that first one, it was a lemon tree in a rustic modern interior. The warmth from that tree against the spare design of the room has enamored me ever since: Despite the idea's Victorian ancestry, I think a citrus tree growing indoors has a quirkiness and modernity about it that's still eye-catching and unexpected. And even though it's done in winter (for a reason), the look is so fresh that we're dreaming about it in spring. Here are some examples shown in the gallery above: FIRST ROW:
