After visiting the Rene Gruau exhibition last week (more of which later) I popped into the newly refurbished Savoy hotel. I must admit I'm not a glamourous dresser, I prefer the fashionably dishevelled look (that's my excuse anyway). So I felt a little bit out of place traipsing through there with a huge heart shaped lollipop they were giving away at the Somerset House ice rink. But it is a grand hotel and very traditional in its styling. There's even a little tea salon where you can watch all of the confectionaries being made by a patisserie chef.
As you can see, they've remained true to the original Deco design.
This sign across the road caught my eye too, I'm a sucker for a good typeface.
A couple of bloody mary's later and I was reminded how nice a treat it is to indulge in a winters day warming cocktail, which has in turn inspired today's Gimme Gimme Gimme...
