The most refreshing thing imaginable during the heat of summer is a dip in a cool pool.
The pool becomes a mecca during the summer, a sort of outdoor living room for those that have one. The color and reflective quality of pools is so inspiring to me.
While the pool is the centerpiece of an outside space, its presence also can foster unique landscaping and fabulous outdoor seating areas. The varying ways people decorate and create their outdoor pool space is as seemingly endless as many a summer day. These ideas can be adopted by you whether you are (or aren't) lucky enough to have your own watery oasis.
I hope you enjoy this brief dip in the pool...
