poolside perfection

With temps in the high 90’s here in the south, and humidity lingering around 89%, I can’t think of a better way to beat the heat than to relax by the pool.  At first glance, one might think this fabulous stone-clad cottage was nestled in the quant English countryside, but it’s really a poolhouse right outside of Atlanta!  Created by architect Henry Sprott Long and decorated by the fabulous Phoebe Howard of Mrs. Howard, Max and Company, this small space lives large, thanks to vaulted ceilings, natural materials and beautiful, swimsuit-friendly fabrics. 

Natural elements like a rustic beamed ceiling, slate and river rock floors abound inside and pay homage to the woods right outside the window.  The great room sits between a pint-sized kitchen and bath-perfect for entertaining guests.

F. Schumacher’s Chenonceau fabric in charcoal frames windows in the poolhouse and really pops against the white planked walls:

For me, the lush, green landscaping steals the show.  Green giant arborvitaes, slate stepping stones, boxwood hedges and a limestone fountain give the feeling that the space has been there forever:
