When I arrived at the window, I immediately tried to take pictures from the street, but the bright sun caused a reflection which interfered with a clear vision of the window. Luckily, Tami Ramsey of Cloth & Kind happened to walk out of Sydney Harbour and invited me to come inside to view the window up close.
Tami allowed me walk into the window for a close look.
Tami and Krista chose curvy furniture to represent the curvy Bond women.
A custom piece commissioned from artist Kate Roebuck on back of sofa adds a bit of “Bond” Glamour.
My favorite detail was gun shell nail heads on the fabric screen.
Cloth & Kind were so kind as to supply me a list of resources for their Sydney Harbour Window.

My friend and fellow designer, Christian May of Maison 21 created an amazing window inspired by the book “1001 Nights” by Hanan Al-Shaykn. I felt like Aladdin was going to fly in on his magic carpet while I was standing in the space. A midnight blue paint color custom created by Sydney Harbour Paints was the perfect backdrop for the window.
Mark D. Sikes used blue and white as an inspiration to create the windows of Hollyhock. Custom chinoiserie hand painted panels created the perfect backdrop for Mark’s timeless, chic window.
