Tennis Superstar Serena Williams just bought an amazing Spanish-inspired mansion in Beverly Hills for the modest price of 6.6M US$, after listing her Bel Air property for 12M US$. The tennis guru overcame herself with her latest purchase, so, join Interior Design Blogs on an exclusive tour inside Serena Williams’s new mansion!
The incredible property was purchased for $6.6 million dollars through Sam Real at Nest Seekers International and is located in the exclusive gated community Summit Estates, in Beverly Hills.
The home design, though contemporary, owes its Mediterranean aesthetic to the historic Old Californian architecture, and the theme is carried through in the finishes and style inside.
“My initial vision for the house was to do a modern interpretation of a Mediterranean design. I translated that into the selection of the finishes. For example, in the secondary bathroom, we did a Moroccan vibe with the encaustic tiles.” – Sharon Taftian, the interior designer responsible for the home.
“Then most of the bathrooms have an unlacquered brass finish,” noting, “I wanted to do unlacquered specifically because I think it ages really well and that patina is so characteristic of the California Mediterranean revival homes.”
Taftian designed the home way before Serena’s purchase but says that she created it with a family in mind, explaining, “I’m married and I have a four-year-old. I had to put myself in the position of: If I lived here, what would make it the most comfortable.”
To that end, Taftian chose to incorporate finishing touches that are clean, but unfussy. Every detail is designed to give the home a feel that is elevated, but still very much lived-in. The 6-bedroom space is also ideal for a growing family.
