Venus Williams Has a Whole Other Career as an Interior Designer

Tennis champion Venus Williams has a lengthy list of athletic achievements and history-making feats. She and her younger sister Serena Williams are two of the world’s most gifted players, and they both are enterprising business owners. Like other celebrities, they are spinning more than one plate.

Not all of Venus Williams’ endeavors are connected to sports, as she is the head of her own interior design firm.

At Home in the Kitchen with Bunny Williams

Our second installment of At Home in the Kitchen takes us to the chic Manhattan home of interior design icon Bunny Williams and husband, legendary antiquarian and shopkeeper John Rosselli! A move to a slightly bigger and brighter apartment on a higher floor in their classic 1920’s upper east side building, precipitated a thoughtful renovation. Join me and Susanna Salk for a visit with Bunny as she walks us through her chic new city kitchen!

Taking into consideration their Manhattan lifestyle, Bunny designed a fresh space with a decided city glamour and yet brimming with practicality. Extra deep cabinetry and hidden appliances make it the perfect space for drinks.
