There may only be three good months of swimming in Michigan but that has never stopped me from wishing I had a pool.

Here are a few of my faves:


This narrow reflecting pool at the Greystone Estate in California would also be a good lap pool. The different levels and shades of greenery around the pool--lamb's ear close to the ground, hedges, and finally white flowering bushes on top--give it such a well-manicured look.


This is the complete opposite. More tropical, it is a pool at a home in Australia that is surrounded by brick pavers and features a big orange daybed under the palms. I would never move from this spot! I can imagine using pallets to form the base of these daybeds for a DIY and splurging on some good Sunbrella upholstered cushions.


This beautiful pool in East Hampton is huge and also surrounded by lots of greenery. I love the shaded pergola at one end because sometimes you want to get out of the bright sun.


A pool with some chaises around the side. Do you refer to these chairs as lounges or longues? Either is technically correct: lounge is what you do on them and longue is French for its shape.

Even if I didn't actually swim in my pool every day, I'd love to have one just so I could sit by the side of it and dip my feet in.

Are you a pool person or not-so-much?
