"Design and art have always been passions of mine," Sharapova told Who What Wear when asked about her decision to work with Rove Concepts. "Traveling for tennis, I always took extra time to explore the architecture and art in cities around the world. I took this personal passion a step further designing my own home a couple of years ago, so when the opportunity to partner with Rove came up, it felt like an exciting new challenge and a great way to continue learning in the design world."
Even though the calming, streamlined collection seems custom-designed for quarantine life, the collab had already been brewing by the time the pandemic hit. "We've actually been working on the collection for a couple of years now," Sharapova told me. "Working with their team was a really collaborative process, one that we put a lot of time, thought, and effort into, and I'm so excited to finally share it with everyone."

"Layer rugs from different styles. Using a jute rug as a foundational base, a smaller Turkish rug on top adds a pop of color and texture to the room."
"I love fresh paint ahead of a new season," Sharapova told Who What Wear. "I'm always on the hunt for the perfect off-white hue. I recently renovated a guest room using Clare in Timeless. Clare is a female-founded direct-to-consumer business I discovered while searching for toxin-free formulas."
