    oooooh i want geoffrey beene’s hawaii home! no pool here but if i had my choice it would be a natural beauty, understated and blending into the landscape. i sort of see myself with a pool in retirement if i’m not on the ocean to give me that beach feel.

    have a lovely weekend, gorgeous ladies.

    relief indeed..and gorgeous to boot..
    fabulous inspiration..I’m so drawn to adding a pool to my (eventual) lakeside summer house..but is that too excessive?…or redundant?..
    I guess I’ll figure that out ofter i get the house.. 😉

    It is so hot at the beach that we can only get out in the early morning and evening!
    These images are very refreshing. I would love to have a beautiful pool.
    Hope that your weekend is off to a great start.

    The perfect post as respite from the heat. I am reading this in Maine, where we have the lake to relive us. But back home, many of these would be a welcome sight!!

    Despite the fact that it’s the middle of winter here, pouring with rain and freezing, I can still find inspiration in these amazing photos. Wow, those pools are incredible. All going into my file for pool ideas later in the year.
