The popularity of coloured pools with a surprise effect is set to grow in 2018. Today we showcase some of the most creatives ideas demonstrating that a pool is no longer just a place for wellbeing but also a setting for enjoying art at home.
Pools inspired by nature
Throughout his career, architect Luis Barragán was keen for pool water to project the colours of sunlight, the texture of multicoloured walls, the trees in a courtyard or the sky itself: from grey to violet and blue on the brightest days. His work constantly sought to make gardens into homes and homes into gardens. For Casa Gilardi, Barragán put a blue and red pool next to a solid-timber rustic table, suggesting that it can be just as inspiring as the greatest work of art.
