The tennis star Venus Williams, four-time gold medalist and winner of 22 Grand Slam titles, is turning heads off the court with her interior design work.
In 2002, Williams started her design firm, V Starr, and has since completed several private projects, including the homes of NBA and NFL players.
Williams’s first hotel venture is a pair of presidential suites — the Royal Palm (pictured) and the Metropolis — at the InterContinental Miami, part of the hotel’s total makeover.
