Oh Joy

pool living...
18 Apr 2013



While in Palm Springs earlier in the week, I got a taste of what it would be like to live in a house with a pool. It's pretty awesome and really provides an instant sense of calm. I remember I used to want to pool so badly when I was a kid...which is actually kind of ridiculous because I could never really swim that well (and still can't).

Have you guys ever lived with a pool? Is it awesome, or is it a ton of work? I love these two homes above and how the swimming pools blend in really well with the surroundings...
