Natural daylight shows the true colors of the plaster and stones used in this pool design. Scenic Landscaping chose brighter decking materials, tiles and stones to make the outside feel resort-like and bright and bold.
The boat installed next to the pool is real and made from an old wooden sailing ketch named SeaQuest. All 32 feet of the boat has been transformed into an entertaining space, complete with wet bar and sleeping quarters.
Luxurious materials, such as antique limestone, plus modern elements such as steel and concrete, are paired for this amazing outdoor entertaining space. Mosaic tile adds glamour for this state-of-the-art outdoor sanctuary. The geometric pool and fountain are surrounded by limestone, concrete and a manicured lawn.
A traditional linear design becomes an inviting setting with the use of elevations, natural stone and multiple fire elements. The Paragon Pools team worked with interior designer Tannie Luke in creating this Asian-inspired design.
Jason Brownlee truly created a work of art for this lakefront property in his design of a terraced pool with water features in black onyx. It connects visually with the Mediterranean-inspired home while providing contrast in color and texture. Especially stunning is the reflective, infinity-edged upper section that is flush with the patio and features a decorative fire bowl to provide accent and drama. Travertine stone creates consistency with the rest of the home and allows the pool and landscaping to take prominence.
Although this patio is perched 13 feet above the lake beyond, Jason Brownlee created the illusion of a continuous and direct connection to the water by designing a pool and spa feature that aligns perfectly with the waterfront view. The infinity-edge, reflective pool that lay flush against the perimeter of the travertine patio helps to reinforce this optical illusion and allows the flowing curves of the patio design to define the space.
A backyard patio/pool combination from Kane Landscapes features a fountain, entertainment areas and a raised patio of concrete, stone veneer, rectangular Penn and Bluestone. To maintain the natural beauty of your stone surfaces, do not use abrasive cleaners (like tub & tile products), vinegar or other acid cleaners. Instead use a recommended clearer from the manufacturer and you can also preserve the stone’s color with a stone sealer.
David Hockney's 1978 artwork "Swimming Pool with Reflection" inspired this California-cool bathroom at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015. Watery-blue glass mosaic tile spills down the shower wall and out onto the concrete-gray tile floor, appearing to puddle. The custom back-painted glass vanity floats on the blue walls and is anchored by a chrome Kohler faucet, adding a modern sophistication to this fun space perfect for a young boy.
This 75-foot indoor pool, which spans the entire length of the lower level, is the centerpiece of the Skilken home. The tile on the bottom forms a beautiful aquatic design, as seen on HGTV's Amazing Water Homes.
Multiple seating areas make maximum use of this open, yet private poolside cabana in New York. Traditional architectural details tie the structure to the main house nearby. The finished surfaces of the cabana are wrapped with Versatex, a weatherproof PVC material, to ensure that it stands up to the elements.
Strategic design equals stunning effect when considering Jason Brownlee's landscape plan for this lakefront property. Seen from above, the three-tiered, infinity-edged pool in black PebbleSheen onyx provides a dramatic contrast against the subtle tones of the patio and Mediterranean-inspired home while maintaining the contours of the radial theme of both the home and its location. From the ground, however, the pool highlights the lakefront view and gives the illusion of a water-to-water continuous connection.
