Find Your Dream
What’s the ultimate backyard swimming pool? Is it a cozy, romantic getaway for two or a splashy playground for family fun? Is it the neighborhood “Party Central” or a place to escape and unwind? A tropical lagoon? A woodland meadow? A soothing oasis in an exotic, faraway land? It all depends... on you.
For me, the ultimate poolscape is one that truly reflects the tastes, passions and lifestyle of the people I created it for. As a designer, my goal is to get inside the heads of my clients, to discover what brings them joy, what moves them and what makes them laugh.
Hobbies, travel, personality traits — all of these go into the mix as I create a design with one person, one couple or one family in mind. I may test ideas and work with different concepts, but I always know when I hit the target with a design that dazzles their senses.
Throughout the construction process, my team and I continuously stay in touch with our clients’ needs, wishes and sense of style. We respond with unique details woven into every aspect of the project.
When it’s complete, there’s nothing I enjoy more than showing my clients the unique environment we’ve created just for them. I’ll be honest; I’m usually as blown away by the results as they are. I can say that with all humility because these special places are always the product of a team effort between my clients, my staff and myself.
I hope you enjoy this tour of twenty-
Most of all, I hope you can share in the fun my clients and I had in making these dreams reality. When I was young, I spent a lot of time playing with Legos. The bricks are a lot bigger and heavier now, but it’s still the same game and I love playing it.
This book is dedicated to my clients, who’ve given me the freedom to play with their ideas and dreams, push the boundaries a bit and bring it all to life. The designs may be mine, but the inspiration is all yours.
