My friend over at Maxminimus recently did a post about television shows of his youth. He mentioned some of the classics like Green Acres, Gunsmoke and Petticoat Junction. We didn’t have a television when I was little and when we finally got one, we could only watch on weekends. I still barely watch the telly, although I must admit I was pretty fully addicted when I lived in Wales.
Anyway… Max omitted one of my favourite shows from my childhood. It was called The Persuaders and starred Sir Roger Moore, later 007, and Tony Curtis as Lord Brett Sinclair and Danny Wilde, two millionaires swanning about the Cote d’Azur and some of the better houses in the UK, solving crimes and looking delicious. I found a few episodes on YouTube, and was just amazed by some of the interiors they showed, including this stunning set of curtains from Brett Sinclair’s London Flat. Of course, what’s even more amazing are the clothes the gentlemen wear. OMG. I am quite taken with orange lately, and I also need to start looking for some new curtains. While I love these, I am not sure that they’ll be what I need.
