It is not often that one gets to see a contemporary indoor pool. The first one that comes to mind is Hearst Castle, that extraordinary extravaganza of surfaces and space that make you feel like you are in a fairy tale. The next, for me, is the remarkable pool pictured here, in which every detail has been magically conceived and the experience of being in the space is totally memorable. It bears a resemblance to the Hearst pool, for sure.
Blue tile for pools is always a great choice. Especially in this particular installation the palette is rich, vibrant and dramatic. All of the elements have the same strength so there is great visual conversation between the furniture, lights and surfaces. The entire room feels watery and cool, evocative of favorite places: Capri, St. Barths. This is a very spirited installation — creative, bold, family friendly and enviable.
