Pool Hopping Around the Globe

Posted:

 

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....

 

Travel Inspiration: Shelter Island, New York

Style & Furnishings: Mid- Century modern architecture with pops of color and deep
blue water balances perfectly in the NY getaway of Jonathon Adler and Simon Doonan.
Add colorful furniture and fun bar accessories for an ideal spot to entertain friends.

Travel Inspiration: Tuscany, Italy

Style & Furnishings: Surrounded by vineyards under the Tuscan sun, there is an undeniable
romance about this updated rustic setting. Add modern white chaises, an indigo throw and a
glass of French rosé for the perfect evening.

Travel Inspiration: Majorca, Spain

Style & Furnishings: Joshua Tree meets the Mediterranean with chic modern furniture that
remains cool against the desert sun. We love blending stark white with concrete accents
and, of course, a fire pit for when the stars come out.

Travel Inspiration: English Countryside

Style & Furnishings: Lagoon blue water surrounded by ivy green walls elicits a secret garden
vibe fit for a Queen. Embrace the delicacy with garden accessories and serving ware for
afternoon tea (or martinis).

Travel Inspiration: Kona, Hawai

Style and Furnishings: Tropical meets contemporary in this lush island retreat, with wood
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.

Travel Inspiration: Bishopscourt, Cape Town 

Style & Furnishings: With a breathtaking landscape, sleek and simple furniture
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.
