A word from the founder…
From an early age, I was exposed to house renovations through my parents. They had a love of antiques, so many hours were spent hunting for treasures in the local auction houses, markets and antique shops. Much of my childhood was exposed to design, art and culture. Aged 12, my father gave me £10 to find something unusual that he would go on to sell through an auction house. It made a profit and I have loved seeking out the eclectic ever since.
After a career as a Wine Broker, I set up my property development company some 18 years ago, with my projects gaining spreads in numerous magazines including Homes and Gardens. From this, my designs began to gain international attention, and so Kim Partridge Interiors was born.
There is much that I find rewarding about my work, but essentially, I get the most thrill out of sourcing those final pieces that make a space personal. I absolutely love books and libraries, so often aim to find something unusual relating to the project that will tell a story. An example of this is at Adare Manor, where a flea market-find features throughout the public spaces. An original mid-1800s political satire book of 92 cartoons, it offers a perfect moment of fun when individual pages are framed throughout the corridors. The book is what would have been read at the time of the house’s founding, and epitomises the eclectic, storytelling nature of our work.
