WORLD CHAMPION TENNIS PLAYER VENUS WILLIAMS KEEPS HER EYE ON THE BALL AS INTERIOR DESIGNER FOR BOTANIKO WESTON

Founded by international tennis champion Venus Williams, V Starr creates striking interior design spaces that are immediately breathtaking from the moment you enter, yet eminently livable.

V Starr has an integral role in the development of Botaniko Weston, as the firm was commissioned to design the luxury clubhouse, sales center and a few of the model homes.
She says she was drawn to Botaniko Weston by the stunning design elements that are carried continuously throughout the project.

She dubs the style a mix of contemporary and midcentury modern, which she admits is one of her favorites. “The collaboration has been great with this wonderful group of people, and we are all very aligned in the vision of Botaniko,” Williams says. “This project has lots of design styles merging, with natural materials and minimalistic influences that create a seamless experience, from when you walk in the door to the last square foot of landscaping.”

Named after their respective architects, the Mateu residences feature highly sophisticated interiors using clean lines, minimal transitions and crisp lighting to highlight linear sculptural elements, while the Oppenheim residences take on a more organic stance, using raw materials, curvilinear elements and inspiration from nature to create a serene environment. Williams’ team joined forces with the rendering companies, architects and branding agencies so that the elements involved would echo the design of the interiors.

“The overall inspiration for the design is in the lifestyle, the families who will use these homes, the entertaining they will do, the quality of life they want to lead here,” Williams says. “The environment of this project is energetic, but relaxing. It’s inspirational and many things all at once.”
