Maria Sharapova Los Angeles residence is her dream home and on every corner, you’ll see a tribute to tennis style. This place is a reflection of Maria’s style and spirit!
There is one thing we can say for sure about Maria Sharapova, and that is that she is a boss! The Russian tennis star said that “I was obsessed with the process of making this home. I’d jump off a plane from a tournament and go straight to the worksite or to the architect’s office or a kitchen manufacturer. This was my project, and I wasn’t going to delegate any part of it,”
Talking a little bit more about Sharapova, she is one of only 10 athletes in the women’s game to achieve a career in the Grand Slam, she won all four majors. Outside the court, she is a businesswoman. She created her own signature apparel line for Nike, she also has a candy and chocolate factory named Sugarpova.
The architect of Maria’s residence was Grant Kirkpatrick of KAA Design and he said she was involved in every detail regarding her home. “To say that she simply collaborated with us does not adequately describe her dedication and influence on the design,” he adds.

In here, you can see influence from different cultures, from several continents. For example, Asia, Europe, and Africa.
