This poolside defines the essence of tranquility. The illusion of concrete slabs floating effortlessly in the still pool mimics characteristics of a Japanese garden. At the rear of the pool, a 14-foot arc of fire highlights a curved stucco wall painted a rich green.
It's All About the Ambiance
Designed by Jamie Durie, this tranquil space is highlighted by the interplay of light towers and water features, creating the perfect ambiance for entertaining or a serene retreat for solo relaxing. Light emitted from the towers is diffused by horizontal striations on the sides and a cascading waterfall down the front.
A glass-wall system seamlessly merges interior and exterior spaces, allowing the homeowners to enjoy both environments simultaneously.
The Ultimate Getaway
Built-in stools surround a swim-up bar. Notice the hammock the ultimate poolside accessory. The use of natural stone adds texture, contrast and a beautiful look to this pool.
Simple Yet Sophisticated
White: pure, refined and classic. There is a refreshing elegance that is associated with white. This beautiful go-to complements the natural color palette of the outdoors.
Standout Color Combo
Designer Scott Cohen uses refreshing colors and unique materials to accentuate this contemporary poolside. The pool is lined with blue and black iridescent 3M Quartz that pops against the white interior of the pool.
Welcome to Heaven
These private lounge spaces are artfully immersed into the pool; the infinity edge merges the cool waters with the private cabana, creating a unified, harmonious experience. White linen canopies provide shade while creating a well-defined private retreat.
A Traditional Twist
This Tuscan-influenced poolside branches away from traditional style with colorful lights illuminating the water. Create your style by mixing and matching trendy and traditional styles to achieve an effective eclectic aesthetic.
Designed by the homeowners, this gorgeous pool includes serpentine curves of beautiful stone, as well as a grotto, spa and fire pit.
