Old World Poolside Pergola With Custom Fire Torches
Designer Scott Cohen of The Green Scene found a craftsman in Mexico that follows the Old World technique of hand carving stonework, and he commissioned four fire torches to display on the pergola's columns. Cohen says he loves to use fire in hardscapes since it creates lighting and a relaxed resort-style ambience.
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.
Three-Tiered Pool Design With Black Onyx Water Features
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.
