Montage: 28 Modern Pools

Having been down to Delray Beach, Florida three times in the last three months, I’ve become pretty spoiled about having a pool right outside my front door. It may be a pool we share with ever-bobbing seniors, but the water is 90-degrees and it’s right outside our door (Oh, did I mention that already?) Over the weekend, I was enjoying the gorgeous weather in Boston thinking, “I wish I could go for a dip.” So not happening.

Summers for us are devoid of swimming pools too. The Outer Cape is known more for its beaches and kettle ponds than manmade watering holes. But if I could have a pool, I imagine a modern pool, a sleek strip alongside the house. Other pools I’ve enjoyed include the chichi pool at the Delano in South Beach, though I haven’t been since they first opened in the mid-’90s (hung poolside with Calvin and Kelly Klein, Barry Diller, David Geffen, and other A-listers that Thanksgiving weekend), and the very simple pool at a villa I stayed at in the outskirts of Florence. Pure and simple, surrounded by grass, where I enjoyed the best Caprese salad too. Enough reminiscing and onto daydreaming with this collection of mostly modern pools.

Montage: 50 Tubs with a View

As winter eases and summer slowly (too slowly) comes forth, one of the things I look forward to is taking baths again. Our condo in Boston has an oversize (too big) shower, but the only tub is a standard one (too small) in the boys’ bathroom. My favorite room at our place on the Cape may be our wonderful, sky blue glass mosaic tile walled bathroom with its deep bathtub (just right). While there isn’t an over-the-top view (we saved the distant ocean vista for the bedroom), it is bordered by two large windows looking out to the woods, including a couple of birch trees, which I love.

The tubs in this post are unreal. A lot of them are part of resorts, but not all. They look out over woods, oceans, mountains, fields, and city skylines. Some are even outdoors. They’re all heavenly.
