Poolside bliss

An outdoor shower is a bonus (seen on the right side). This one is built-in but stand-alone versions that hook up to your garden hose are readily available.

Home comforts

A vanity table containing all the essentials, from tissues and hand cream to sun hats and hand towels, is a luxury guests appreciate. Statement lighting and a durable graphic rug make the space feel like a room you'd find inside your room.

Out in the Open

Instead of storing swimsuits inside, keep them handy in your change room by placing each one in a separate container or basket.

Under cover

This fun, vibrant fabric was the jumping-off point for the space. Covering all of the concrete walls adds a level of comfort and coziness. A white decorative ladder propped against the wall offers a unique way to display and hang towels to dry.

Private screening

This do-it-yourself, tri-fold screen provides extra privacy while changing. A tall chest with multiple drawers takes up little real estate and safely houses jewellery and poolside necessities like sunscreen.

Chill factor

An awning quickly rigged up with outdoor fabric and wooden poles creates a cool, shady spot to take a break and enjoy refreshments.

At your service

Cold refreshing drinks are always in order on a hot summer day spent lounging poolside. A bar cart with a pitcher, glasses and a bowl of lemon wedges allows guests to easily help themselves. The white, yellow and natural colour scheme, along with the banana trees, reads tropical paradise.
