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.
