Robert Kime

With an unparalleled reputation as a discreet, tasteful interior designer, Robert Kime has worked on grand houses internationally. His clients have included the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Beaufort. His interiors appear to have evolved over time, combining a relaxed mood with antiques, vintage textiles and quirky pieces.


Robert started his career as an antiques dealer four decades ago, while reading history at Oxford. He subsequently worked at Sotheby’s and then with Miriam Rothschild. His work combines his passions for antiques, textiles and putting together rooms. He has two London shops that showcase his fabrics, lighting and furniture, antique pieces.


Robert and his team recently completed a shooting lodge in Northumberland. They are also working on a pied-à-terre in Pimlico, a five-storey town house in Notting Hill, and a three-bedroom house and annexe in Kensington. Upcoming commissions include 12 bedrooms for an existing client.

What’s your tip for a great interiors find?

‘The antiques fairs in the South of France are particularly enjoyable places to shop. I often find little gems in Béziers, Avignon and Montpellier.’
