20 Dreamy Poolside Retreats

Happy Monday! Warm weather has arrived, peonies are blooming and the count down for pool season has officially begun. As our minds wander to al fresco poolside dinners and lazy summer nights, I thought I would share twenty of my all time favorite pools, pool houses, and poolside retreats with you. I have an affinity for symmetrical pools with clean lines, tailored outdoor furniture, potted boxwoods, and white flowers. Add a dash of blue and white porcelain and I’m on cloud nine. Happy daydreaming!

P.S. Scroll to the bottom of the post for a few pool essentials- including the best packable sunhat in the world.
