Pool was finished in Mar

Thanks to all for answering my questions. We used a travertine border against stained concrete and iridescent mosaic copper tile for tile around the pool and tanning area. It was overcast this day so it's hard to see the beauty in the tile, it pops. We went with salt water, white plaster and the swim jets at the end. Now the only issue is keeping the sand out of the pool. :-) Thanks, again!

Beautiful! Love the curtains also. What's the depth of your pool?

Thanks, It always windy and usually very sunny so we built the pergolas to help with the sun, they will be painted white soon and the cedar on top has been weatherproofed and will stay natural. Just about everything is modern at this house which is reflected in the pergolas but I just had to have the curtains. :-) The Tanning area is 9" and at the bottom of the steps where the pool bottom starts it goes from 3' to 4.5'. the swim jets are at the deep end. On the island you reach salt water around 5.5 - 6' so no deep pools.

Padre Island, TX. Longest Barrier Island in the world. :-)

Thank you for your kind comments. It is very serene. I lay on the chaise you can't see in the picture and go to sleep.

Absolutely beautiful. I feel more relaxed just looking at it.

Where did you get the curtains?
