Kime and Place
I have always been a huge admirer of Robert Kime ever since I was introduced to his work by way of his sublime fabrics. What I love most about Kime's work is how unpretentious and comfortable his rooms are whether its his own charming farmhouse or a grand palace or country estate for Prince Charles. His rooms always have a sense of time and place as if they have been there for generations. They are not trying to be anything but comfortable and elegant. You cannot put a date on them because they are simply timeless and always gracious. Like the late Bunny Mellon, Kime has a gifted eye for the extraordinary and honest. The most recent T Magazine included the following photos from his country home, Docker Nook, and his apartment in London.
