Let's go swimming!  On second go ahead....I am going to check out this pool house!

Scarlett Abbott photo
 Artist Scarlett Abbott is the genius decorator of this marvelous pool house. Nothing escapes detail in this design...look at the shell encrusted lantern and marine themed groin vaults.

Shells adorn most of the furniture and some of the arched doorways!

Love those shell sconces mounted on the antique mirror walls.

More shells and nautical themes ! Notice the shell encrusted arched doorway in the mirror reflection...

Tedesco photo
Want more? How about Andrew Tedesco's work. New York based artist Andrew, created this 30 foot scene on canvas in his studio and installed it on site.

The other walls were painted on site to continue the illusion...

These pool houses show the power of design and execution....take ownership of your walls and create your own fantasy world!

Wow, Instead of swimming laps, I want to walk laps around these rooms to see everything!

Yes, I gladly take the plunge! Absolutely stunning grotto inspired loveliness. You take us on the most wonderful artistic journeys. Hope you have a great weekend.

Theresa, what artistry. I have always wanted to work large and do murals, these are outstanding. Both homes have such attention to detail.

Just beautiful! An absolute fantasy - I wouldn't be swimming either, but inspecting every inch!
THANKS for the great Dallas visit advice! I'm already snooping around the Whimsey Shoppe and it looks fabulous! Can't wait for the trip.
