Here's to a summer of pool parties and gatherings with friends and family!

We only get 3 months to enjoy the sun here in the Pacific Northwest, so let's make the most of them! We've put together some of our favorite outdoor patio and pool tile looks to help you get inspired in your own backyard!

life in the slow lane

You don't need a fabulous pool to have some fun in the sun, but it certainly doesn't hurt! This LA pool keeps it contomporary, using ARTO Brick's Roman series in the smooth finish.

curb appeal

Business in the front, party in the back. While your backyard is the hub of many of your summer activities, don't forget about the part of your house that gets action all year round!

The Villeroy & Boch tiles can be placed loosely in a gravel bed or set with mortar.



head for the hills

Nothing beats a mountain getaway. Enjoy it in the summertime with a large patio, outdoor bar, hot tub, and bug spray. These Roman pavers achieve a rustic look with mixed limestone and luna finishes.

infinity & beyond

Seamlessly blend into your environment with an infinity edge pool. A blend of blue Oceanside Glass Tile adds visual interest without taking away from the view.

entertain for days

The perfect patio doesn't exist, you say? We beg to differ. Your friends might never want to leave with an entertaining space like this one using Artillo tiles.

the bee's knees

The Honeycomb pattern from Island Stone adds the perfect pop of texture. Natural stone is the ideal material for an outdoor patio, especially around a pool where other materials may get slippery!

make waves at the bar

An outdoor bar. A margarita. A sunny day. What more could you ask for? A colorful mosaic, definitely a colorful mosaic.

Deck out your pool with some handpainted decor tiles from ARTO. These extremely detailed pieces take 8 hours to paint by hand each!
