A Magical Mix: Fire Features from Cameo Pools

Two elements that aren’t supposed to mix? Fire and water. But these two elements that mix in surprisingly elegant ways, when employed in a custom pool design by Cameo Pools. Rare indeed is the modern back yard or estate without at least one fire pit; if you’re planning a pool installation or re-do, you’re probably also considering where to put these warm conversation-starters. Well…how about next to the pool, or even as part of the pool itself? You can station them at both ends, as you see here — as part of corner cascades or waterspouts. They’re a stunning accent to a corner garden, with shade trees and greenery. A separate fire pit, away from water and closer to your outdoor cooking area, is a good solution for cooler climates, where you may be outdoors way past “swimming season.”

In cases like these, you may even want to expand beyond the circular fire pit and build a regular free-standing stone fireplace; group a table and chairs around it for toasty outdoor dining almost all year ‘round. But for sheer dramatic effect — and if you’re going for an outdoor living area with a pool as its prominent center — you can’t beat working the alchemy of fire and water…together. Imagine how your guests will react to three jumbo-sized fire bowls at one end of your deep blue pool, serving as “up-lighting” for trees and reflecting their glow clear across the surface of the water; in fact, take a look at that splendid effect here, and you don’t even have to imagine it. Combine the unexpected in your back yard — meld fire and water — then wait for the compliments!
