Modern Monochrome Poolhouse by Alice Lane Home

Bringing the Outdoors In

Imagining a secluded beach in the south of France lined with stylish black and white cabanas led the Alice Lane Home team to design this poolhouse & patio space, a part of their impeccably put-together French Moderne Manor. This creative team firmly believes that outdoor living should feel every bit as luxurious and well-designed as indoor living–and the REstyleSOURCE team couldn’t agree more! “So many of the little details are really what make this space so special,” say the designers. “Everything in this outdoor space mirrors the something from the home’s interior, making it a cohesive design throughout.” Lead designer Jessica Bennett, along with Christy Klomp, Kristina Kellett and Kendra Stephenson, was awarded “Best Home” for the French Moderne Manor, in the 2015 Utah Valley Parade of Homes People’s Choice Awards. In fact, this project swept the awards given last summer, also winning Best Master Suite, Best Kitchen, Best Landscaping, and Best Interior Design.

Most of the furnishings seen here can be purchased directly through Alice Lane Home, if you’re in the Salt Lake City or Orem, Utah area.

fireplaceFavorite Pieces: All the Marbles

The book-matched Zebrano marble fireplace is stunning in this space! Because of the overall French Modern style of the home, we used marble on just about every surface and fireplace surround in the home’s interior. We wanted to extend that luxurious style into the outdoors as well, which not only looks beautiful but keeps a cohesive design between the interior and exterior spaces.

patio1Designer Notes: French Inspiration

Sticking with our French-inspired theme, a lot of the finishes and furnishings were inspired by the beach resorts found in France…with our own modern spin, of course. Major inspiration came from the exquisite Janus Et Cie pieces we used to furnish the patio and pool house. With their traditional French rod iron frames and modern gold finials, we knew they were the perfect fit for this home.

With those in place, everything else just sort of came together!

patio doorsDesigner Notes: Weather Challenges

Because of the harsh winter conditions we face here in Utah, it was a bit of challenge figuring out how we could design an entirely open space for the summer months that could then be enclosed in the winter. We ended up going with some really awesome folding patio doors that essentially make up two full sides of the pool house.

When opened, you can easily pass through the pool house, creating an inviting space that connects the outdoors with the indoors.
