Summer's in full effect and we're gunning to spend afternoons poolside with a good book and
an even better cocktail. Our perennial wanderlust had us wondering how others deck out their
patios....... here are some stellar pools we found. Now, all we need is to wrangle an invite....

blue water balances perfectly in the NY getaway of Jonathon Adler and Simon Doonan.

glass of French rosé for the perfect evening.

remains cool against the desert sun. We love blending stark white with concrete accents

and black accents that compliment the endless summer green. A mix of sculptural and organic
furniture blend perfectly- especially when it encourages putting your feet up.

compliment this hidden oasis at the foot of the mountains. We love understated yet
structural side tables and a getaway bag fit for a chic safari.
