Indoor plants for coolish room.

Trying to add a bit of green interest to the interior - rooms such as en-suite bathrooms, places which are usually not heated much so I guess will be at 16oC most times, cooler overnight. One in particular does have a large West-facing window, so the sun - when it appears - does come through in the afternoons. For the rest of the time, tho', it can be considered 'in shade'.
Since most indoor plants usually have to be used to warmer climes - 20oC or so - is it nuts to consider having an outdoor plant in rooms like this instead?
Thoughts as to options - around 2-3' height (it'll be sitting on a raised surface, 3' off t'ground), with interesting foliage and stuff? What has made folk go 'Hmmm - interesting...' in your experience?
Thanks for any pointers. And to whether 'outdoor' is even sensible.
