Pool House: a play space that works

Loving the trend for building pool houses
at the far edge of swimming pools.
Curvaceous & inviting, 
this little building is a stunning 
contrast in shape to the rectangular pool.
They can work well on a larger scale too, 
like these individual ones at the Ivy in Sydney.
Then again, perhaps all you really need 
is a little space for cosy shelter.
Oh and space for a fabulous pool bar cart too! 
 And with drapes to create a sense of luxe, 
this is one trend that I am loving!

How about you?

    Oh how I would love a pool...and not a swim up pool bar or Balinese hut in sight! What gorgeous images Virginia - all so beautiful and inspiring. Am particularly drawn to the gin wagon...pick the mother of 2! Annie x.
