La Piscine - poolside decorating chic


A swimming pool is the focal point of any garden. The opportunity to play with light and reflections, the soothing sound of water and refreshing views of aqua blue water is irresistible. 

Swimming pool French garden

French garden furniture looks beautiful on lush lawns and in enclosed courtyards.

Potted box wood, olive trees, hydrangeas and white geraniums are some of my favorite poolside pieces.

Sculptures on pedestals, pottery and urns bring interest and formality to a garden. They look wonderful in garden beds surrounded with colorful blooms. Another superb way to create a focal point is to place sculpture near a swimming pool and enjoy the shadows and reflections that they cast.

Biot jar in rose garden French garden pottery

Antique Biot jars bring a Mediterranean feel to this French rose garden. Biot jars have been used for centuries as storage vessels for olives and olive oil. They were sealed with either clay or carved timber lids. Even their shape is evocative of an olive. They are glazed around the rim and on the inside to help preserve the contents.
