Topic: Bond's flat in SPECTRE

Have  not seen the film yet as I'm in the U.S., but for those of you who have I was wondering what you thought of Bond's flat.

Re: Bond's flat in SPECTRE

You see more in the still released back in February.  Don't get too excited by these scenes.

Re: Bond's flat in SPECTRE

A pleasant surprise I liked it.

More like his pad in Dr No than LALD.

It seems to be in Eaton Place, not far from Victoria Station and Buck Palace (so not far to see the Queen) and if so I saw a DB7 parked round there when I passed a few weeks ago. Nice.

All we see is the one room a lounge, high ceiling, white walls looking out onto the street with railings, what is the design, Georgian terrace houses? Thing is, what we see is spartan and it doesn't alienate the fan by suggesting that Bond lives in a fancy residence, he could be renting and it would only be the location to make it pricey (though that it would).

You can impose your own ideas on it because as Moneypenny asks

Re: Bond's flat in SPECTRE

It's in Notting Hill. Stanley Gardens.  Not quite as nice as Eaton Place/Sq.  But a fair bit quieter.  Would have been nice to have him had an Eaton pad, being so close to Ebury St and Moo's mews and Victoria Sq, King's Road etc.

Oh, okay, my bad. Wasn't there a feature in the Evening Standard? Goes off to look.

Bond's flat

I didn't notice Bond sing at all...

Btw, any appearance of the nightgown? And if so, any hints of the brand? Thanks.

Very Spartan as befits a 'man without qualities' it seems entirely functional and not a place of comfort or entertaining (no surprise as this Bond has no joy in his life)

I hope you mean 'dressing gown' as a 'nightgown' is totally different and tend to be for ladies  ajb007/amazed

But yes, the dressing gown is seen, but briefly....

Um, yes, my bad. Well, a dressing down would be a nice view nevertheless, only NOT on DC!

Was thinking it might have been Derek Rose, but nothing similar in their catalogue. Any ideas?

He gets a dressing down from M just after the titles. Great scene!  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Bond's flat in SPECTRE

Thanks for sharing.  I did not expect them to show his flat much, though I'm glad they put him in a Regency style home.

Re: Bond's flat in SPECTRE

I love the flat scene... not to give anything away, but it really reflects Bonds lack of 'frivolities' - it's functional, manly, and well... unfinished... a bit like Bond. He's too busy to 'make a home' - or "get a life" - it's all work.

Re: Bond's flat in SPECTRE

I have a problem with it, to put it in Navy terms it's not "Squared Away"  with his background everything should be in it's place, drilled in from Dartmouth, on ships and in the mess. Stuff lying around not very efficient.

I think when it comes to work...it's like he's too busy to sort out his living arrangements...it's just not important at the mo.

It's a place to eat, drink and sleep. Pretty efficient to me... ajb007/wink

And the poster on the wall of the tennis player scratching her arse was a nice nod to the Roger Moore years...

Her exact words were "horribly efficient."  ajb007/cool  A great line, that.

Re: Bond's flat in SPECTRE

Interesting... Looks like another place in London Bond fans would need to visit along with many others before this..

From the stills I've seen it seems as though he had just acquired it and is just in the middle of moving things in.  I'm sure he would have everything squared away when he would have the time.

Re: Bond's flat in SPECTRE

In Skyfall, his flat had been emptied and all his belongings sold, he was presumed dead.

Re: Bond's flat in SPECTRE

I haven't seen the movie yet so I just wanted to ask: was the scene with Bond in a bath robe included in the movie or not?
