My Favorite Best Pools From Around The World

(Maui, Hawaii)

I was looking through my library of books yesterday and came across  Kelly Kleins , Pools
. (Calvins ex-wife)
This book is from the eighties but  went into a reprint a few years ago. Anyway, Inspired by a desire to design a new pool for her own Long Island
backyard, Kelly Klein sought out and put together the most arresting and
iconic photographs of swimming pools in all their various forms to
create this unique and stunning book. The photographs are as inspiring
as they are moving, revealing an incredible wealth of styles and designs
in climates and cultures across the globe, and evoking the sensations
of rest and nostalgia, the clarity of water and light, the coexistence
of coolness and warmth, and the insinuations of sex and romance that can
bring such character to a swimming pool.

Included are pools in all
shapes, sizes, colors, and settings, from Tangiers and Miami to the
ancient magnificence of Hadrian’s Villa; from Coney Island to the Côte
d’Azur; from the robber baron 1880s through the prosperous 1990s, and
captured by great photographers such as Lartigue, Stieglitz, Munkacsi,
Weston, Mapplethorpe, and Weber. Republished in its entirety from the
original first edition of 1992, including 187 photographs and a note
from Esther Williams, Pools is a classic of modern design photography and an inspiration to aesthetes and creative homeowners alike.

But it got me to thinking – what are some of my favorite pools……..
