Natalie from This Sweet Life’s Dream Pool
When did you last jump for joy?
We certainly did when the gorgeous Natalie Sullivan (Mum blogger, interior designer, renovator) of This Sweet Life approached us to install Quantum AOP Mineral System to her dream home! And we’re delighted to be able to share her latest blog along with some sneak peeks of the finished pool to inspire you….enjoy!
If you look at any Palm Springs designed or inspired house there is one thing that stands out to be the hub of the home, and that is the swimming pool. During our design process, I remember seeing countless images of bright blue pools with simmering water, flat rooflines in the background and palm trees in the distance. It was this image that catapulted our love of the Palm Spring vibe, and ultimately what made us decide on this as the theme for our new home Palma Soleada.
When we considered putting a pool into our new home there were many questions we considered; what would the design look like? How would the pool be finished? Tile choices? Size of the pool? But there were other questions lingering that were far more important than those based around the aesthetic of the pool, such as can we ensure our pool water is safe from viruses and bacteria? Were we comfortable with our children swimming in a pool full of chemicals and toxins? How much time did we want to spend cleaning the pool? Were we comfortable with the ongoing costs of maintaining a salt or chemical pool? Did we value superior water quality? How did we want the water to look and feel?
