Andy Murray’s wife Kim Sears has spoken about how she winds her husband up about interior design. The couple owns a 15-bed hotel in Perthshire named Cromlix, though Kim admits that its renovation has largely been her ‘project’.

Murray was back among the winners last week when beating Tommy Paul in the final at the ATP Challenger event in France – his first tournament success since October 2019.

There would have been a collective sigh of relief in the Scot’s camp following the victory ahead of the French Open, showcasing that the former world No 1 still has plenty to give to the sport after suggestions earlier this year that his retirement was on the horizon.

Though when the 35-year-old does decide to leave the court for the final time, he won’t be short of opportunities. Murray will have numerous chances to remain within the sport, may that be in a coaching role or in punditry. However, wife Kim may be hoping that her partner will play a bigger role in the running of the Cromlix hotel.

Speaking with The Times, Kim – who met Andy at the US Open in 2005 – admitted that acquiring the 34-acre plot was a major post-pregnancy project, which she has completed in, quite literally, flying colours after deciding to renovate the facilities 18 months ago. The 35-year-old revealed that her husband of eight years is not particularly keen on dipping into the design aspect of the hotel though, often finding the interior design part of the project a nuisance.

Kim explained: “He was the one who wanted to buy the hotel in the first place, to be an asset to the community, and he loves the family connection. He was vocal about how he wanted it to feel and what he looks for when he goes to a hotel, which is good Wi-Fi and a comfy bed. I’ll show him my mood board to wind him up because he finds my taste in sumptuous statement wallpapers bizarre.”

The Murrays were approached by the previous owners of the property 10 years ago when it became clear that they needed to sell the facilities – and Andy was very keen to acquire the stunning building.

Kim explained: “Andy felt very strongly that it would be lovely to do something for the local area. Andy and [his mother] Judy were always passionate about its location and the huge connection with the family.”
