Diving In

Hi Everyone!  Hope you  had a great long weekend.  We did, with a bit of downtime as well as a wonderful family visit.  Now, onto today's post...

Although I don't live in a pool-friendly climate, beautiful pool settings - and especially the pool house - always catch my attention.  Maybe it's the unnattainable factor (living Seattle means that is never going to happen) that's so appealing, but there is no denying they are a beautiful luxury.  In fact I have collected so many I have split it up into two posts.  Let's take a look at the first installment together:

With the weather we're having here to today, I'm ready to take a plunge! The town pool is only 64 degrees though and not nearly as pretty.

Hi Barbara! Love your pool house inspiration - you are one jump ahead of me, I'm working on a pool post for later this week as a friend of mine takes possession of her new home with a backyard pool on June 1. I'll definitely be sending this on to her! Looking forward to seeing you next week. XO

Hi Barbara--great places!! Do you have any idea where the second photo was taken? I love the ruins which remind me of the ruins of haciendas in Mexico. Thanks. Mary

These spaces have me longing for a pool and a little covered porch/patio. That is one thing that just won't be happening at our house....but I love the look and if I could...I would!!!

Also...have you been to Watson Kennedy yet in Seattle? I met the owner, Ted, at Blogfest. What a doll! Just wanted to mention it as I think it's the kind of shop you would love!
