So this has definitely been the longest, snowiest, coldest winter I can remember. Ever. There are only 14 days until we “spring forward” and that has me dreaming of summer. I am specifically dreaming of pools and relaxing in the warm sun with a great book. Here are some pictures of the pools I dream of lounging by.
They are all similar in that they share the ubiquitous dark bottom and rectangular shape that seems to define the post 2000 era pool. Gone are the concrete decks of yore replaced with Pennsylvania blue slate and stone. Free form pools have been replaced with the rectangle and symmetry is key. There are a few new trends which may or may not see past 2014 (think infinity edge, water shows). But whatever your dream pool looks like summer has to come at some point.
