East-Coast Inspired Backyard Patio and Pool
Everything about this gorgeous backyard, patio and pool was designed to evoke the East Coast's Hamptons. Pergolas provide poolside shade, while cozy furnishings and blue accents infuse the outdoors with a style all their own.
A Tropical Pool Space With Unique Features For Entertaining
A geometric South Florida swimming pool includes a sunken circular seating area that's comfortably appointed with neutral pillows and cushions, providing ample area for relaxation around a central fire pit. Corners of the pool feature plants such as Mexican Fan palms that are set in dark, tumbled pebbles and framed by neutral stone pavers or dark ipe wood.
This gorgeous backyard has an oasis-like feel. Located below the infinity edge pool is a lounge-like seating area, which can only be reached by walking over the concrete stepping pads. Water spills over the stacked stone wall creating the sound of rain sticks.
Flowing curtains hang between traditional columns to create a privacy screen that also helps protect from wind and sun. Comfortable cushioned lounge chairs are the perfect spot to relax by the pool with views of the Pacific Ocean.
Using indoor/outdoor fabric on this eclectic pool house's neutral sofa makes it durable for wet swimmers after a day in the sun. The red refrigerator adds color and provides a place to chill drinks and keep snacks for family gatherings.
Take the architectural route to your fire pit area with sculptural furniture, minimal decor and a contemporary chiminea. To create a focal point and ground the space, opt for a tall chiminea standing at least five feet.
Backyard Patio and Pool With Textured Concrete Deck
Designer Scott Cohen of The Green Scene varies the flooring materials of this backyard patio to add visual interest as well as to help create separate outdoor rooms. The covered seating area features Sweetwater flagstone, while stone-textured concrete is used in the lounging area beside the pool's Baja shelf.
Swimming Pool: French Normandy Beauty in New Canaan, Conn.
With an elevated spa and comfortable patio seating, the home's luxurious swimming pool makes the backyard feel like an exclusive resort. Trees surround the pool, providing shade and privacy, and flowers potted in elegant urns add feminine sophistication to the outdoor space.
Four cushioned lounge chairs line the far edge of the pool, with two umbrellas overhead to add a touch of shade. Meanwhile, hydrangea bushes and other eye-catching plants form a natural backdrop that smells just as wonderful as it looks.
Backyard Pool and Patio Take Cues From The Hamptons
Striped fabric helps create shade under this patio pergola. The pergola provides the perfect spot to lounge poolside, entertain family and friends, and take in the scenery in this Hamptons-inspired backyard.
This charming, transitional pool house features a unique open design that makes it half garden terrace, half indoor escape. Fretwork on the pool house's series of "windows" adds a modern touch to the space while leaving it open for users to enjoy the bucolic, rural scene beyond.
For more formal affairs, the owners and their guests can move into the dining area. Here, an elongated table and dark wood chairs complement the room's more rustic details, while lanterns illuminate the space into the evening.
A Dramatic Sunken Fire Pit Area in the Middle of a Pool
This South Florida home boasts a unique outdoor entertaining space highlighted by a sunken circular fire pit in the swimming pool. The space features ample cushions for relaxing as well as a bespoke lighting arrangement in the seating area and swimming pool.
