Memorial Day weekend is the gateway to summer, and in celebration, we’ve gathered some of our favorite mid mod pools for inspiration from backyards to hotels.
What’s not to love here? Everything’s just right–from the kidney-shaped pool, firepit, playful retro fabric, and the classic flamingo floatie.
Now here’s a backyard you’ll never want to leave! From the fountains along the pool wall to the planters to the breeze block borders to the orange recliners, everything is inviting and well-selected. Learn more about this North Carolina backyard here.
This Wexler-designed, Alexander-built home is another Palm Springs vacation home with a pool befitting the home’s vacation vibe. The landscaping surrounding the pool contributes to the sense of being in a desert oasis.
