HOME-SPIRATION: Adults Only Pool

Over Labor Day weekend David and I went to visit our good friends in Victoria, Texas. They just moved in to a gorgeous house, and put a pool in! So we spent the weekend eating amazing food, drinking cocktails, and lounging in the pool. Now I grew up at house with a pool that no one ever used, and never thought of myself as someone who would love to have a pool. After spending the weekend lounging by the pool in a private backyard oasis, away from screaming kids, floaties and squirt guns, I realized how nice it would be to have a private, adults only pool right in your back yard! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images of my dream backyard oasis.

This oasis is exactly what I want!
