Swimming pools of all kinds allure me like no other home design element.  I suspect my love of pools stems back from when I was  a kid.

It was a Saturday afternoon and my dad was taking care of us 3 kids.  We were booting around town with Dad as he did a few errands.  One of those errands was to get us signed up for swimming lessons.

I was around 5 or 6 years old.  It’s one of my earliest memories.  We drive up to the recreational center that housed our town’s pool.  We walk into the reception area and BAM – there it was through the glass… the large, crystal blue pool.  I wanted in.  I actually thought we were going swimming.  My young mind couldn’t comprehend that my Dad was there to only sign us up for swimming lessons, not to go swimming.

I saw the pool and I wanted in.  Dad did his best to reason with my young, illogical mind to no avail.  I entered tantrum mode and we drove home.

I still remember like it was yesterday my glimpse of the pool.  It was magical.  Ever since then pools have held a magical sway over me.

This made putting these 61 pictures of swimming pools together a lot of fun.  I love swimming in pools, but also enjoy looking at pictures of great swimming pool designs. This non-infinity pool gallery was put together to provide a wide variety of in-ground swimming pool types.  For our infinity pool gallery – go here and for our indoor pools, click here.  Also be sure to view our gallery of 24 incredible patio furniture sets here.
