8 Cool Pools

Oceanside pools aren’t just for posh resorts. Find a style you’d love coming home to―whether it’s a luxurious infinity version or a petite lap pool that opens right up to your family room―and take the plunge.

It is always helpful to derive inspiration from existing spaces when designing an outdoor living space.  Whether you live on either coast, or whether you are in the heartland, seeing someone else’s existing space can give one ideas to incorporate into their own space, or at least begin to delineate between what is wanted and what is practical.  This post from coastal living gives some great design inspiration from the coast, presenting 8 amazing coastal properties with swimming pool designs to get your design juices flowing.
