Let us glean some inspiration from the Winter Garden in the Atrium of The Landmark London Hotel. Don't you kind of want to live here?
You can! (Sort of). All you have to do is find a good, sunny place in your home for a palm tree, and based on that, decide on tall and slim or short and stout, then go to your nearest garden centre and buy one. Then you have to find a good-looking urn in which it will sit. We'd recommend scouring antique markets for something cool, rather than buying something new. For example any one of these would look great: cast-iron Americana, Chinese hand-painted, vintage Moroccan.
After that, you simply give your palm a name (optional), and water it once a week (and not more). And that's it! You've brought the tropics into your home. Room service, alas, is not included.
