Rolling into the Royce

Inspiration, Lifestyle, STAY

I feel like I’ve just stepped out of a pumpkin as my Adidas shoe plants itself on the polished floor of the Royce Hotel on St Kilda Road. If only I had my boa or a flapper dress and some dashing T-strap heels. Even the air is delicately perfumed in this lobby which oozes 1920s style with its gold painted ceiling, red velvet wall panels and winding ballroom staircase.
