Before and After: Leah Remini’s Pool Room

I am excited to share another space transformation from Leah Remini’s home. If you missed it, last week we revealed her crisp white kitchen. Today, I want to show you how we transformed her pool room. Like most pool rooms, the space was originally designed with a den-like vibe of low light, dark woods, heavy drapes, and traditional furniture. We wanted to update the space with a clean modern aesthetic that would maximize natural light and create a fresh airy feel.

We started by painting the ceiling and walls Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace. As I’ve shared before, this is a favorite white paint of mine for creating a clean fresh environment. Dark beams visually lower the ceiling and create more of a warm intimate setting. Because we wanted to create a room that felt open, airy, and flooded with natural light, we chose to also paint them white. We switched out the dark colored drapes for clean white ones. They add warm texture to the space without feeling heavy.

We swapped out the old traditional pool table for one with clean lines and broke up the dark wood table and rich floors with a beautiful plush gray rug. It adds a lux warmth, creates contrast, and further lightens the space.

To finish, we added hints of black and brass that add polish and depth to the white space. Although this space feels like a modern transformation, the simple styling and classic color combination of black and white is timeless.

This is such a beautiful home and so fun to transform. We will be sharing more images so be sure to check back soon!
