Am I the last to know that Venus is CEO of V*STARR, an interior design firm?!

I had no idea!  Seriously, am I the last to know?  Should I be embarrassed by my lack of knowledge in the world of famous tennis stars turned interior designers?

A girlfriend of mine, Starla, was the one that shared the surprising news.  My interest was piqued.  I had to know more.

So here’s the scoop for you out of the loop-ers like me.

According to the website,Venus, started the design firm in 2002 in Jupiter, Florida (Wow, I am late).   There are 3 designers that call V*STARR home and they service commercial and residential clients in the Southern Florida area.  Venus and her team add to their credits the set for the Tavis Smiley Show and a model Olympic Village apartment in NYC for the 2012 Olympic bid.

Curious to see the portfolio? I was!
