love the colour of the pool - what tiles and what colour were used? - We need to make a choice very soon - probably going with Bisazza tiles - but need a colour

Hi and sorry it's taken a while to get back to you! The tile was a slate grey/navy blue porcelain tile. Remember that a dark tile reflects the sky, whereas a light tile allows you to look into the pool. Good Luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

And what would an ideabook on outdoor pools be without a zero-edge infinity pool? As the architects describe the pool, "it was careful fit into the existing rocky landscape for total scenery immersion."

On the back deck, after the fire-pits and couches / chairs is the infinity pool. The inner wall of the pool (the edge that connects with the deck) is glass. It allows the sub-floor (basement / office) to be seen from inside the pool, as the pool's blue water can also be seen from the office. The pool's lighting is on the ceiling / beneath the deck, and shines through that glass wall creating a diffused glow.
