1. Four talents turn Sketch London into a winter wonderland

Mayfair’s iconic Sketch London restaurant has added another reason why it’s one of the most memorable places across the pond. During early January, the legendary hot spot hosts its annual “Winter White” exhibition, where four floral designers and longtime collaborators create stunning installations in each space of the restaurant. In the welcoming reception area, Rebel Rebel Florals drew inspiration from author Robert Frost’s famous poem Your visit to the forest on a snowy evening, where a mixture of pine branches, forest plants and limonium flower beds provide guests with a romantic welcome. Inside the three-Michelin-starred restaurant’s auditorium and library, a surreal, crystal-adorned tree designed by Tony Marcello dazzles guests, while at the heart of The Glade, JamJar Flowers designed a cloud-like structure made of flowers and foliage that float above it. Finally, atop the East Bar and Pods, Ricky Paul installed a larger-than-life snow globe surrounded by frosted pines and asparagus ferns to end the evening in a true photo-ready wonderland experience. – Shelby Black
