Pool House Meets Tuscan Fountain

Charming archways and a Tuscan fountain easily draw the eye to the nearby pool house. Meanwhile, a row of lounge chairs in pale blue offer another refreshing spot to stretch out.

Serene and Secluded Backyard Oasis

With tall hedges and an iron gate encircling the property, this backyard feels especially serene and secluded. At the far end of the pool, a blue sofa and chair give the owners a spot to relax after an afternoon swim.

Poolside Lounge With Pretty Accent Pillows

Tall hedges double as a natural wall and so provide additional privacy for this contemporary lounge. Striped accent pillows keep the space extra cozy and complement the umbrellas above.

Blue Hues Brighten Outdoor Dining Area

Across the way, an outdoor dining table comfortably seats six. Blue cushioned chairs not only complement the chaises by the pool, but are also water-resistant in case of stormy weather.

Table Showcases Tropical Elements

A closer look at the table reveals palm placemats, bamboo cutlery and fresh flowers. Guests will absolutely adore eating brunch by the water, in the warmth of the sun.

Pool House Boasts Breezy Dining Space

And when it gets to be too hot? The owners and their guests can retreat into the comfort of the pool house. Beneath the arches, another table and chic blue chairs wait at the ready for dining al fresco.

Custom Fireplace Keeps Pool House Cozy

The pool house can even be used year-round thanks to a fireplace that keeps the space nice and warm. Three comfy armchairs enhance the cozy aesthetic.

Timeless, Tuscan-Inspired Kitchen

What pool house would be complete without its own kitchen? Designer Betty Lou Phillips continued the soft Tuscan touches with stone arches and a few iron accents. Three barstools offer additional seating.

Pool House Includes Kid-Friendly Locker Room

Floor-to-ceiling lockers not only keep the pool house neat and organized, but also make for a fun, kid-friendly design.

Nature-Inspired Powder Room

Down the hall, a powder room gives guests a spot for freshening up. A large oval mirror and chrome-trimmed sink draw the eye, while a pebble floor and wood accents offer a natural touch.
