Love Window Box Topiary in London

Cool Idea: Love Flies Out the Window

During my wonderful weeklong trip to London and Suffolk hosted by the team from Visit London, I toured the fashionable Belgravia district, one of London's most charming and prestigious neighborhoods. Among other neighboring high streets, quaint Elizabeth Street is lined with small brick buildings with ground floor boutiques and residential apartments above. While the storefronts each exhibit their own sense of style with perfectly curated paint colors and sophisticated signage, the top floor exteriors are for the most part simple.

So I couldn't help but be smitten with one resident who spelled out the word "love" in topiaries from the window boxes on their balcony. The romantic touch of greenery is both subtle and eye-catching — quite akin to the sleepy neighborhood that carries the covetable red carpet looks of Jenny Packham, the show-stopping hats of acclaimed milliner Philip Treacy, and the to-die-for gems of Erickson Beamon.
