So, Mr Bond, we’ve been expecting you . . . for quite a long time it seems. Finally Skyfall has fallen into our cinemas.
It doesn’t matter who your Bond is (and it’s largely age-related – for me it will always be Pierce Brosnan) there’s no disputing the style of the man. The exhibition focuses mainly on the cars, gadgets and clothes but here at Mad About The House, we are not interested in all those fripperies. No Sir (or should that be M) we’re all about wanting to know where he got the cushions which Pussy Galore is lying on. And is that a Flos lamp in the background?
So here, we give you a little bit of James Bond style for you to recreate within your own four walls. So pour yourself a drink . . . yes, yes shaken not stirred and off we go . . .
