VanElders Design Studio PHOTOS BY ANDY GILMORE
This elaborately designed outdoor living space features a formal, circle-themed pool as the centerpiece. A raised, infinity-edge, artisan-crafted glass tile spa on one end stands opposite a shallow reef area at the other. Designer Kelly VanElders overcame the challenge of creating a perfectly level edge for the display mode of the spa, which evenly distributes water 360 degrees. Incorporated into the backdrop of the pool is a raised stone fire and water element, with the perimeter of the patio further enhanced by landscaping and LED lighting. Completing the outdoor living space are an outdoor kitchen; covered dining area with heaters, a fan, lighting and audio/video components; and an upper deck with a custom curved metal staircase. The space is fully automated via iPhone or iPad.
