With one of tennis' biggest stars, Serena Williams, playing her last match at the US Open this week, we take the opportunity to peek into the home she designed in collaboration with big sister Venus. A sleek modern property north of Miami in the USA.
Five years in the making, the sprawling waterfront home was completely gutted to usher in a more minimalistic palate, inspired by Williams love of modern art and technology and perhaps a developing romance with, now Husband, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian.
While restraint is evident in the white walls and clean lines throughout, an extravagant final addition of daughter Olympia’s custom designed pink castle bed featuring slide has become somewhat of the highlight of the home, in contrast to the casual but elegant comfort that pervades.
Not for lack of space the home’s noticeable absence of a tennis court helps Serena separate work from home life, instead opting for an elegant infinity pool and the occasional bout of competitive karaoke in the hidden performance space, concealed by a bookshelf in the formal sitting room turned gallery.
