Inspiration: Blofield's Chateau, Our Dream House

Hearing that the next James Bond film, Quantum of Solace, is slated to open November 7th, we were reminded that one of our dream homes is Blofield's chateau from On Her Majesty's Secret Service...

It's not just a former movie set though, it's a real place, Piz Gloria, set high in the mountains of Switzerland. Built as a restaurant, it was taken over by the Bond crew partway through construction, renamed, and turned into the evil scientist's experimental lair. It still serves food, revolving high over the snow and accessible only by cable car. We've got our furnishings all picked out: The Hahn sofa from Room and Board, the Meteor table and a big white fur rug. We'll light a fire, mix up a martini and wait for Daniel..excuse us...Jamesto join us.
