Venus Williams: I Love Textiles

The former World No. 1 stated, “I really want to go to New Mexico. They have a cool art scene, and I love textiles. It’s my love. So, there’s a lot of amazing textiles there. I want to take classes on Navajo weaving. I used to stay at different boutique hotels when I traveled, and that would expose me to new designs as well. I love learning and seeing other ideas and getting inspired.”

Williams stated that the TV room is her favorite room in the house. Elaborating further on that, she said, “I just moved into a really old house so it’s not designed or anything. At some point, I’ll probably build a new house, but for now, it’s just actually a cheery place. It’s got good bones. But I haven’t been there. I’m a very displaced person right now.”
