Summer will be here before you know it, and that means we can start daydreaming about pools and pool houses!  Designing a pool house is a balance of cultivating chic summer style while maintaining a functional area.  What kind of pools and pool houses are perfect for your personality?

Palm Beach Excellence

How luxurious is this pool-side view!

Are you the type of person who could spend an entire day strolling Palm’s Antique Row?  Classic and timeless elegance is your style!  Grab your Lilly Pulitzer bikini and dive into this lush Palm Springs pool design!  I love the topiaries surrounding the pool and the fabulous scrolling tile pattern!

The Secret Garden Escape

Secret Garden Pool Cami Weinstein

I love this at-home retreat!

Romantic and lush, while maintaining functionality, this pool has a secret garden aesthetic to it.  When mapping out your garden for plants that will work best by the pool, consider fragrant plants that are easy to maintain (though pruning in the pool sounds like a relaxing chore).

The stone slab arrangement creates a natural yet refined poolside deck, and the structured chairs help to pull everything together.

Prosecco, Poolside

Poolside Conservatory Retreat Cami Weinstein

Poolside by candlelight, anyone?

Sometimes it’s just nice to lounge around the pool house with a glass of chilled Prosecco.  This poolside conservatory retreat is so inviting!  How beautiful are the glass ceilings of this pool house?  Wicker furniture and fresh flowers finish the design, beckoning for a good conversation or quiet time with a book.

The Grandiose Sanctuary

My ideal poolside retreat!

Genevieve Faure’s Dominican Republic pool house features marvelous architectural work, which includes pillars of course!  Hanging out in this tropical sanctuary looks like the ideal summer day, complete with La Perla swimwear and freshly squeezed juice before a night of dancing!

Which of these pools and pool houses do you love?  Stay tuned for more favorites!
