Venus Williams: Interior Designer

Trying out a new talent, the tennis star has done her first interior design project for the InterContinental Miami.

VENUS DESIGNED HERE: Trying out a new talent, tennis star Venus Williams has done her first interior design project for the InterContinental Miami. The 32-year-old pro’s firm V Starr has left its touch on two 3,300-square-foot presidential suites. The Florida-friendly Royal Palm plays up of oranges, yellows and whites, and the Metropolis uses more natural tones such as gray and tan hues for a sleeker city feel. Williams has worked her magic on a master bedroom, living room, dining room, multi-media room and kitchenette for each. Lining up Williams is part of a $30 million renovation plan underfoot at the property. A “digital canvas” will be illuminated on the hotel’s exterior Dec. 6 — just across the way from the inaugural UR1 Music & Art Festival featuring Kanye West, Lenny Kravitz, Lou Reed and others.
