Pool Inspiration: Barcelona 18th July 2016
If you want a creative and unique luxury pool, inspired by one of the most beautiful places in the world, it’d be difficult to find more fertile ground for inspiration than Barcelona. The city is renowned for its ceramic artworks, with the mosaic creations of Antoni Gaudi at Park Güell proving fodder for tourists seeking Barcelona’s sights and creatives seeking stimulation alike.
So, the big question is, how can you distil Barcelona’s spirit into your pool design? Let’s look at the colours, shapes and materials of the city’s streets could be adapted into your luxury pool design.
If you love the mosaic style of Gaudi’s Catalan modernist artworks, then you’ve certainly come to the right pool designers. We’re experts in beautiful, intricate designs using bold colours to achieve spectacular results. The overriding colour which forms the base of his designs is undoubtedly the collection of traditional ceramic blues and rich indigos – just look at the striking blue and white tower at Park Güell. However, these colours are regularly teamed up with vibrant yellow for gorgeous, sunny contrast.
When it comes to choosing shapes, the nature of Gaudi’s work is beautifully irregular, organic and freeform – not something you can achieve with a pack of off the shelf pool tiles. Our hand-crafted tiles, however, are made bespoke for the intricacies of your pool design, no matter how many curves and swirls you want.
After all, your pool doesn’t just need to be somewhere you swim – it should be something beautiful to be admired in its own right. Just remember, if you get a little creative with your choice of pool designer, you don’t have to be stuck with a blue rectangle – rather something that inspires and invigorates your day-to-day life.
