Give your backyard a beach club look

Turn your backyard into your own private beach club with these easy style ideas

Splash pool

Splash pool

It’s just the right size (7 feet wide, 13 feet long) for 2, or for a lone castaway on a raft. The water’s Blue Lagoon color comes from the white plaster finish, which reflects the sky.

Clubhouse

Clubhouse

A barbecue, a wet bar, and built-in seating fit nicely into a space barely large enough to dock a speedboat. Whites, blues, and sandy beiges sustain the coastal mood.

Cabana

Cabana

A sailcloth roof over a simple wooden frame creates a shaded retreat. With gravel on either side, the pathway mimics a beach boardwalk.

Shell fountain

Shell fountain

Water trickles from a copper verdigris spigot into a clamshell set in the wall. (After all, what’s a seaside getaway without bivalves?)

“Tidepool”

Echeverias and other small succulents, planted in a blue bowl, look like underwater creatures.
