We’re taking you outside for this week’s “Room of the Week” feature. This poolside oasis was built around steep terrain, but that didn’t stop these Little Rock homeowners. They called upon expert designer Larry West, who had designed the interior of their home, and also Scott Girner of Elite Pools by Scott. The pool itself features state-of-the-art technology. Made from gunite (a mixture of cement, sand, and water), the salt-water swimming pool features Elite Pools’ proprietary Smart Pool™ system. Following the lead of the pool and its natural, neutral-based stone surround, West added the finishing touches to the terrace. “Because the area is so woodsy, we wanted to create an outdoor space that fit with nature,” West says. Light tan cushions are mixed with warm-hued throw pillows on the outdoor furniture. The far end of the pool features a ledge, which allows for a swim-up bar on one side and barstool seating on the other. Poolside cocktails anyone?
