In the interior, there is a bold orange wall that seems to frame the white wall which holds different artworks on it. You can also see here a stone wall that also has a modern fireplace in it. The seating area has a long wooden table surrounded by comfy chairs.
According to the designer, “all of the windows in the pool house were pushed flush to the ceiling to follow the line of the roof, and offer sunlight while providing privacy for guests.” You can see clerestory windows here which brings light to the space.
Different chair designs are added inside the pool house. You can also see in this large open-concept space a freestanding block of cabinets which defines the open and private spaces.

This is the private side of the pool house which has cabinets and it is also a perfect place for guests to change and shower. There is a shower area on side and a toilet on the other. In the middle is a lavatory.
What made this area look more interesting are the colors. Aside from the orange wall, the blue lights of the shower area and the purple lights of the toilet area add colors to the pool house. And that cowhide adds a lovely detail to it too.
