Remember how magical candy stores were growing up? Of course you do. Want that feeling back? Who doesn’t! Head to the heart of Melbourne’s shopping center and re-capture your childhood at The Candy Room, a whimsically unique new store on the always bustling Queen Street.
The acclaimed Red Design Group has brought the stark black-and-white graphics of a coloring book to the walls and displays of The Candy Room, for a sweetly surreal experience. Shelves and stools, a clock, picture frames, pot holders, and even a stove have all been lovingly hand-drawn to complement the bright jars and piles of delectable delights, from gum balls to chocolate. Unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, The Candy Room is a charming spot to grab souvenirs and gifts, while totally getting to feel like a kid again.
