Set Inspiration: Bond, James Bond

I go through these spurts where I get hooked on a movie or an actor, and this month, it's Bond, James Bond. (I know, I know, I had to do that...) In particular, Sean Connery. Isn't he a fox? No offense to Mr. Connery, but I think the real star of the films are the amazing sets. They have that international groovy 60s vibe that doesn't seem to ever go away as a trend. I pulled together some of my favorite sets from the films, and some stuff you can get to make your pad as "Bondian" as a dry martini.
You Only Live Twice (1967)

From Russia With Love (1963)

Dr. No (1962)



Diamonds are Forever (1971)

Bond is so cool - I use to have Bondmania, not the film-kind but the books. It is not that it is great writing, but the atmosphere is fascinating - I guess I create images in my head when reading - and I love them. And I love the sets you have chosen
