The boldest way to add interesting tile designs to your pool is to add a pool wall to one end of the space. The decorative orchid on this pool wall is attention-getting yet peaceful.
The inside edge of the pool is the most common place to see decorative tiles. What's unique here is that there are two layers of tiles, each with a different design, creating a look-twice effect that makes the pool interesting.

The decorative tiles here are placed at a slant so that the water flows off of them, creating a ring of water around the outside of the pool. What a great effect!
The decorative effect of pool tiles is enhanced when they are placed on the inside rim of a pool that has a unique shape to it. Here, the shape is further enhanced with the exaggeration of the design on to the flat ground extending away from the pool.
A traditional rectangular pool may seem simple but you can add bold beauty with a great tile pattern. This strong pattern repeated all around the pool is a great example of that.

A decorative tile sculpture in the center of your pool adds an interesting artistic appearance to it. The tiles will last a long time in the water so this is a great choice of material for an in-pool display.
Add a lit-up fountain to your pool area and set it against a tile background. Use tiles in the pool that compliment the tile design of the fountain. This ties the whole landscape together in a very powerful way.
