Whether you’re building a new pool or remodeling an existing pool, there’s a lot to think about when it comes to design. Interpreting design terms can feel like learning a new language, and it can be challenging to know what buzzwords to use when searching for inspiration. We’re launching a new blog series that will walk you through popular design styles. We’ll also give you tips on incorporating elements of each design category into your poolscape.  

Transitional design: Classic and contemporary collide.

Ever-evolving, Transitional design combines elements of classic style with current trends. The best aspects of various design styles are carefully tied together to create a streamlined, modern twist on traditional. The result? A poolscape that’s cohesive, versatile and incredibly beautiful.

How to pull it off

1. Keep base layers like pavers and the pool finish timeless. A soft and neutral color palette allows you to add texture and pops of color with natural design elements like plants.

2. Include some warm tones in your color palette to make the space feel comfortable and chic. 

3. Play with patterns and make the design your own with decorative touches like planters, pillows and outdoor furniture that can be easily refreshed and rearranged. 

4. Combine textures. An easy way to do this is with upholstery and pillows. Outdoor elements featuring contrasting fire and water can also achieve a mixed-media look and feel. 

5. Mix and match sleek and rustic materials. For example, pair a modern outdoor table with textured woven chairs.
