What Houzz contributors are saying:
Underwater fixtures. LED fixtures are also a great choice for wet and submerged environments, such as a swimming pool, pond or water feature. They are available in fully waterproofed cases, and their long life span means they’re less-maintenance over time. The LED pool lights here create a glowing blue body of water.
In his book Blue Mind, marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols writes how being close to or in water can improve both body and mind. So if we combine water with stress-relieving blue, as in this stunning lit pool at nighttime, will we lead happier lives?
Feeling blue? Program pure blue and turn up the intensity. Want something more chill? Program golden light and dial it down soft and low.

Basic Rules of the Color WheelArt lessons begin with the basic rules of the color wheel. Red, blue and yellow are primary colors, while secondary colors are made of combinations of two primaries: orange (red plus yellow); green (blue plus yellow) and purple (red plus blue). Tertiary colors combine one primary color with one secondary color.Adding white to a color creates a tint; adding black to a color creates a shade. The primary palette of the vivid blue pool shown has another primary accent in the yellow-chartreuse Japanese maple tree, uplit for emphasis.
