Poolside Glamour


"Drawing Rooms are so old-century; the locus of every respectable place in the sun is now the swimming pool. It's your typical jet set day. You wake up around ten and have breakfast in your room, brought to you on a tray; or if you are a morning sort you go down to the terrace overlooking the pool.  By eleven you are sitting at the pool with your host, rehashing what happened the last night: romances, the wine, the faux pas, any amusing bon mot"... by William Norwich from Poolside with Slim Aarons.

Inspired by sunny days around the pool, swaying palm trees and all-night parties; here are designs straight from our archives that will have you traveling the world, where dreams become realities and taste, style, luxury and grandeur prevail!
