Langham St, W1

In some contexts, evergreen box and ivy – and nothing else – would look a bit uninteresting/unimaginative. But against this very distinctive cream and black tiled background, it looks perfect. There are lots of similar window boxes outside the Grange Langham Court Hotel.

It’s not all monochrome, though – there’s usually a splash of colour from bedding in hanging baskets around the front door.
