Pools and Spas: New Designs for Gracious Livingby Alan E. Sanderfoot, Jennifer Bartlett, Jennifer Bartlett
The greatest change in pools and spas over the years has been in the area of design -- especially above the waterline. The days of generic-looking pools and one-style-fits-all designs have passed. Swimming pools and spas of the new millennium reflect their owners' lifestyle, as well as the architecture of their home and the site's topography. Today's pools aren't just about swimming -- they're about setting the scene for entertainment and relaxation. From geometric shapes to natural environments that include amazing rockwork, contemporary pools and spas are all about individual style. In Pools and Spas you'll discover how to use alternative materials, bring the outdoors in, introduce unique water features such as waterfalls and fountains, use lighting to create a dramatic look, make the most of a small space, and work around a garden setting. You'll be introduced to all types of designs, from illusionary negative-edge pools and ergonomic spa settings to streamlined lap pools. This gorgeous tour of pools and spas will provide all the inspiration you need to create your ideal body of water -- indoors or out.
