White on blue is the theme of this backyard mini-spa. Here you can relax in the circular, integrated hot tub or "pull up" a submerged stool and stay cool in the main pool. A privacy wall is framed by an Asian-inspired cedar pergola transforming functionality into artistry. Hanging spheres that decorate the pergola's roof are echoed in three recessed wall niches - below each, a larger niche overflows with brilliant floral hanging baskets. Softening the entire image, a lineal fountain dusts it all with a glistening mist.
Like coming across a secret glade in the forest, this pond has a hint of magic and a whisper of enchantment. Large urns filled with flowers appear to stand watch as the water vanishes over a softly curved infinity edge. An irregular boarder of flat stones along four edges are perfect for sitting down to chat with guests or perhaps let out your playful side and dangle your feet for a moment in the cool, clear water - go ahead, no one's watching.
Symmetry and understatement gives this private oasis a sophisticated elegance. Tiles in luscious, variegated shades of blue create visual intrigue while desert palms and ferns add textural depth. All is ready for the guests who will surely be arriving any moment now, ready to share an evening of conversation and fine food at the table set for eight.
