I’ve meant to do this for a long time because I love movie sets as much as props, wigs and falballas 🙂
Despite I’m more an Avengers aficionada (Think Emma Peel here, how fascinating she is in ‘A touch of brimstone’!), some of the New Avengers episodes are worth the watch. ‘Sleeper‘ (written by genius Brian Clemens) reveals a great insight of Gambit’s and Purdey’s flats while London plummets into deep-sleep.
White and gold bed frame, round (lacey?) bedlight, big flowers wallpaper, beads curtain
Bamboo cane nightstand and sleek ivory white phone
Purdey’s open kitchen: White and purple cupboard and matching curtains, bamboo cane chairs and table
The Trimphone, designed by Martyn Rowlands for the Standard Telephones & Cables Ltd (1965 and up)
Moving left to the living-room side (and another set of beads curtains), lilac walls, matching piano and sofa
Masculine and streamlined, here’s Gambit’s bachelor’s pad!
Dark grey walls with a few touches of colours, transparent smoked glass table, leather and metal chairs, spotlights, silver head
Dark grey brick wall and white work top, mushroom ceiling lamp
Gambit’s bedroom: Faux fur plaid (aka “Flokati”), weapons, graphic onion canvas, magical stereo combo and burnt orange wall
Guest room: Apple green rules! Big green round knob, black, green and white forest canvas, white and green walls.
Anyone who grew up as a child in the 70s will remember the predominance of apple green and this too:
Woodleigh green apple shampoo (“Prairial” in France, “Campus” in Italy). I’d give my horse to have this stuff back on the shelves.
