Hampton's Pool-9x11" pencil
The symmetrical and classic lap pool with manicured hedges framing the view of the ocean is made interesting with Aztec-inspired "floating gardens" of orchids to aesthetically enhance the space. Large-scale coral-tile pavers have reindeer moss growing between, and in front of each chaise is a zebrawood storage bench for towels and water, along with recessed outdoor floor fixtures at the foot of each bench. Javanese coconut pots add a large scale to the lap pool, while crisp white marble benches pop against the greenery of the hedges. Hand blown glass light globes are put over zinc planters for ambiance.
