A pool of zig and zag…

So the plan is to empty our pool…which will be

ever so happy to get a face lift.

and chevronor zig zag…is where it is at!

zig

I have always loved the talavera chevron seen throughout Mexico

and thought why not on the tiles of the pool surround?

zig1 The inspiration pic below is from the House Beautiful book: Pools.

Great idea!!

ruthie said...

I LOVE that idea! so unexpected and fun. I'd even come swim in your pool!

That's so beautiful! If you tiled all the way down to the bottom, it would almost look like a real-life Hockney painting.

Such a fantastic idea! Can't wait to see the end result.
