COOL RETRO POOLS

IMG

Ahh, there is nothing like a nice refreshing dip in a pool to cool you off on a hot summer’s day. We will be nowhere near ready to install a pool in our yard this fall – but a girl can dream right? We have discussed having a pool in our backyard one day so it can’t hurt to get some ideas.

I have flipped through my vintage home magazines and found a few fun pool landscapes that have inspired me to think about the style of pool we might like.

I love how this pool is right outside the home – an extension of the deck with the grass and greenery just beyond. These ladies seem to be enjoying the space.

I would love a kidney shaped pool like this with lots of deck space. Check out that aqua butterfly chair on the left.

And here is a mid century ad for fiberglass swimming pools. A modest and simple oval shaped pool is fenced in with a mix of iron rails and decorative stone walls, a lovely combination. Add some vintage metal furniture along the fence and you have a sweet enclosed pool area.

Maybe by next summer we’ll be ready to install a lovely pool like one of the above. And then, what does every retro inspired pool area need? A retro inspired tiki bar of course!
