Tree at my window

When choosing an apartment in the city, one of the things that is essential on my list is at least one room with a view. An outlook over trees or a park greatly improves my urban living experience. It also makes me feel instantly at home. If only one room has a view, which is my current situation, make sure you take advantage of it and set up a reading nook there. I sit and read and glance up at the trees, which change frequently with the season so the view is always new and exciting.

If you are lucky enough to have a deck, balcony or backyard, you can create your own green outlook. The Columbia Road Flower Market in East London on Sundays sells amazing trees, including beautiful citrus and olive trees. But will they survive a London winter? You may have to bring them inside.
