A classic swimming pool doesn’t have to be an ordinary, plain rectangle; look at these classic clean-lined designs from Arizona’s Cameo Pools, and you’ll quickly see that your options are limited only by space… and imagination. Pair a square pool with a matching spa, brick pool house, and shelter — then add one, or several, cascades. This provides both visual interest and a great cooling-off point for swimmers of all ages. One of the best contemporary additions to new pools is a fire pit; include both a cascade or fountain and a fire pit for the best of both elements! And think in terms of both natural materials, especially native stone, and manmade touches such as colorful glass mosaic tiles of all colors, to “zip up” a classic pool shape with interesting colors and effects.

Love a dark blue tile pool with long, lean lines? Complement it with concrete paving stones, interspersed with green grass, to blend pool deck, patio, and walkway in one. Integrate a spa with your swimming area, or separate it with its own concrete or stone “bench” edge for handy seating. And even a traditional pool can have an infinity edge — an especially terrific effect if your pool area overlooks a larger neighboring body of water. Finally, don’t forget special lighting for your pool: colored lights, indirect spots, up-lighting of surrounding foliage, and ornate lanterns or other special fixtures can create a whole new ambience for moonlight swims and evening parties. Browse through these images for inspiration — then “take the plunge” and enjoy!
