The fearless use of color in this artistic pool garden in Arizona is really appealing to me. It plays well to the environment, surrounding architecture and climate as well as being a fun and inviting space.
It feels to me like the home of an artist. Artists seem to crave color and incorporate it into their spaces in an interesting and unexpected way. I personally find the fake blue of some chlorinated pools highly unappealing and the antithesis of refreshing, but here it is part of the color scheme and I can look at the pool as a design element in a colorful environment rather than an unnatural chemical bath.
The fence treatment with the corten steel panels are also really drawing me in….only seeing the space from these pictures, I still have the desire to walk over to them, touch them and follow them around the corner to see where the fence leads and what it feels like to be surrounded by these interesting pieces.
This seems like a deeply personal space that can only be created by a designer who is partnered with a homeowner who really got involved in the design and had a wonderful vision to add to the process.
