A Reflective Outdoor Swimming Provides This La Jolla Garden With Added Depth
A reflective swimming pool is bordered by a multicolored stone wall in the garden of this La Jolla, California, home. At its foot, a matching stone fireplace is situated to warm guests as they lounge on oversized wicker sofas. A trellis canopied with classically styled shrubs is a natural barrier offering additional privacy.
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.
Mary DeWalt Design Group continued this home's interior colors — blue, green and beige — to the outdoors for a clever and cohesive design. The turquoise pool and blue sky, surrounding greenery and beige hardscape materials all maintain the color scheme for a full and memorable effect.
A mix of rich finishes and textures bring life to this transitional pool house without detracting from the spectacular outdoor view. Beneath the arched window, an installation of Jamie Beckwith Collection Projection wood tiles adds visual interest and drama.
Set in the corner of this entertaining backyard oasis, the spa-like hot tub invites visitors to relax. Accessible via a stone walkway over the pool, or an elevated lounge area, the hot tub provides a view of the entire backyard and is framed by tall walls for privacy. A cut-out recessed wall behind the hot tub provides the perfect place to set candles or other decorative elements.
