DESIGN || 5 Gorgeous Pools & Outdoor Spaces

Do you guys follow along on Pinterest? If not, do it now! (jk I'm not that bossy, but really, if you like my posts, follow along!)

One of my favorite boards to fawn over when in need of inspiration is my Daydream Dwellings board - which is filled with photos of insanely gorgeous interiors, exteriors, landscaping and architecture. And this heat has got me longing for a poolside escape - which has led to a pool pinning frenzy!

I've rounded up my top five favorite pools and outdoor spaces that would definitely leave you feeling and looking cool. Let's take a look.

1. Two words. POOL HOUSE. 

The brick, the wooden counter, the hinged glass window - I'm daydreaming of serving friends and family a refreshing signature cocktail when they take a break from the pool. Watermelon Mojito, anyone!?

2. Private Pergola

You can bring the bougie poolside cabana feel to your own yard with a beautiful wooden pergola. Add some outdoor drapes, a rug and some lavish seating, and all you'll be missing in a pool boy to refill your cocktail. 

3. Living Room Extension

Wake up. Morning swim and coffee in the pool. Afternoon nap in the hammock. Dance party in the living room. Evening cocktails poolside.

This seamless transition from living area to poolside would make my ideal day feasible. 

4. Interior Courtyard

This is perhaps my favorite of them all.  A gorgeous bohemian-inspired interior courtyard with a pool, acting like any other room in the house, except the sun is shining brightly and the tropical plants are thriving!

5. Poolside Glamour

A beaded chandelier in a tree? Yes! The juxtaposition of the casual seating with the touch of glamour makes this poolside feel luxe yet relaxed.
