Greek-inspired Surroundings:

There is nothing more relaxing and aesthetically pleasing than Mediterranean themed décor – especially when it is featured in outdoor design. For the furnishings, look for soft, sandy coloured timber as this can be easily paired with white seat covers and pale blue accents that will have you reminiscing of the Santorini scenery. Nothing says Greek chic more than the classic bougainvillea plant. Well-known to grow frequently amongst the cobblestone villas and pathways of Greece, this bold, pink vine flowering is the perfect way to bring the Mediterranean to your pool area. Simply plant a vine on the pool’s adjacent wall near the outdoor furniture.

Tropical Pool Toys:

It is no question that inflatable toys are a necessity when it comes to any pool! But this does not necessarily mean the toys have to be tacky or overtly childish. Tropical pool toys are the latest craze to sweep all swimming enthusiasts, with inflatable designs including flamingos, swans, pineapples, bananas and even palm trees. Perfect for any family photo or Instagram shot, these tropical inflatables are sure to bring out the child-like joy in anyone.

Infinity Pool Design:

If you are a lucky duck whose pool backs onto beautiful scenery, such as any houses within the Northern Beaches, then perhaps consider doing some design renovations. With the benefit of adding value to your home and backyard, infinity pools are the epitome of luxurious style and vacation inspiration. All it takes is for the home owner to be willing to loosen the purse strings, contact a pool specialist and designer and work with them on achieving the ultimate infinity pool for your outdoor space.

Patio Paving:

If you are in the market for some new patio paving for your pool, then this is perfect for you! Picking the right pool paver is a necessary step in ensuring the design of your pool is contemporary and fresh. Pale-coloured pavers are ideal, given they can be cleaned easily, are low-care and will fit seamlessly with the pool interior. Travertine pool pavers are arguably the most popular on the market, thanks to their natural limestone material and slip-resistant properties.
