Pool Inspiration

These are not the best images after you save them down but they're all from Pinterest.  Some pool inspiration.  We definitely are going to have a plain ole rectangular pool with a tanning ledge (for Mills of course! ;)).  We aren't sure what kind of pool deck we are doing yet.  Anyone have any suggestions?

Is that 3rd pic down a house from the Hamptons? I swear it's the exact same house my friends rented a few years ago. Exact same pool and pool house, but then again, a lot of homes up there have the same look.

We live in FL and have brick pavers around our pool. They are a pain. Weeds grow up in between the cracks, a huge headache. Choose something that isn't too slippery when it gets wet or one that is too hot in the sun.

We built a pool when we lived in AZ. The builder talked us into a "cool deck". It was great out there, stays cool in the 120 degree weather but I did not care for the way it looked. My daughter has a pool in CA with just regular cement and brick trim. It looks really nice and doesn't get as hot as she thought it would. We had the Baja step - that's what they call it out there and our dogs LOVED it and Mills will too! I don't know if you have salt water pools there but that's we had and it was almost no maintenance. Or you can get a pool boy, like my daughter...

I'm SO jealous! Did I mention that I make a mean mojito ? ;)

They all look amazing! It is so exciting you are getting a pool!

We are putting in a pool at our house, and we are PUMPED! I agree with what a previous poster said about pavers. Some people in our neighborhood had pavers and just had to redo them all since they shifted / weeds started growing up / etc. So I think we are going with stamped concrete. It's better looking than the keep cool pool deck, but it's still cooler than other materials. I absolutely LOVE the look of the stone, but it's much more expensive and slippery, from what I've heard. We, too, are doing a rectangular pool - I think ours is 16 X 35. We don't have a huge yard, so this should suit us just fine. We are doing a tanning ledge and a swim out area / ledge in the "deep end" which will be 6 feet. Oh, and we're getting a salt water system. And two shooting water things (like mini fountains - but that's not what they're called - jets maybe?). Actually, tomorrow we're going to pick out the tile and all of that good stuff. This is such a fun (albeit pricey... :/) home improvement!
