Good pool design, in my opinion, is best left to simplicity. Clean lines and curves that are reminiscent of our own allow us the space to let go and not be distracted by the 101 things that moved us toward seeking the relief of the piscine in the first place. Water is therapeutic, and if there is no lake, beach, or ocean to be seen, the pool/back yard oasis will most likely satisfy. There is nothing sexier then the clean lines of a pool mingling with the curved contours of the physical form. Don't you agree? -tM
