Transformation Tuesday The Renovation of a Windsor Vero Beach Billard Room
You know how much I love a good before and after story! Today brings the complete transformation of a Billard / Media Room of a Windsor Home.
What was once a dark, green cavern we transformed into a rich textural room without much more than wallcovering, paint and new furniture?
The basic elements of the room are all the same. The dark stained beadboard ceiling and wainscoting. Even the door trim was white previously, you just couldn’t see it behind the dark green damask draperies. All few new light fixtures updated the room although still very traditional, the new light fixtures relate to all the other elements in the room. We used an A-Mazing black and tan color combination along with tons of texture to bring the room a comfortable easy feel. Raffia walls and patterned sisal rugs are a great neutral backdrop while the leather recliners ( yes – I said recliners!) I hate them as a whole, but sometimes I just have to give in. The art on the wall is black and white photos of African wildlife and are grouped in pairs with wall sconces on each side.
The pool table felt was changed to a neutral tan color. It is actually the same pool table, my clients purchased it with the house. Did you know you can change the color of a pool table? There are actually a ton, well ok maybe 15-20 choices in color you can choose from. It makes a big difference in the overall look of the room.

Most importantly, I know everyone wants a Brass Tiffany-esk pool table light fixture that looks like you took it straight out of the honky tonk at the end of town – right?
This wall you see in the photo above is actually the only demolition that was done to the room. It was originally there to divide an office area on the other side from the pool area. We removed it – opened up the room and utilized the old office space a TV/ Media. The room is still on the dark side, great for watching movies but nowhere near as dark and dated as it once was.
