The southern girl in me loves this plantation style home by John Stefanidis. And this is only the guest house not even the main house!The best outdoor spaces have to have a pool (or at least in my opinion). I love that the lawn continues up to the pool's edge here at actor Rob Lowe's home. What I would do to be in one of those chaises right now! I wonder if Dave Annable (Justin from Brothers & Sisters and previously the love of my life) has ever come over to lounge at the pool!?
I picked this one for the lovely bar. Because who doesn't want a poolside bar!? I love to swim - like really swim - flip turns, one-piece swim suit.. the whole nine-yards! But so many backyard pools are just too small to get a good work-out, or if they are actually big enough, they just seem massive and out of place. But I love this one - they did such a great job at fitting in a full lap but it still fits so nicely in this space. (These above 2 pools are in Better Homes and Garden).
