I don’t want to be too presumptuous, but if you’re reading this right now, I’m going to assume you have a pool or are schemin’ to get one. And as the bitter, backyard-less apartment dweller that I am, can I just say: I AM SO JEALOUS.

Being able to stroll through your back door and dive into your own personal pool is one of the greatest luxuries I can even imagine, and omg, do I hope you know how lucky you are. But with great pools comes great responsibility: In other words, if you have a pool, you better treat it right. Translation: Accessorize the sh*t out of it. And if you’re looking for the best furniture and accessories to make your pool yard the coolest in the land (or at least your neighborhood), you’ve come to the right place when it comes to decorating your pool.

Below, you’ll find a list of carefully curated pool decor ideas that’ll help bring your swim space from drab to fab, from furniture pieces that look like they belong at a five-star resort to pool floats you’ll be itching to post on the ‘gram, and everything in between.

The good news is we’re still a few months away from summer, so you’ve got time to get shopping before pool party szn is in full swing. Scroll through to see what needs to go in your cart (and then in/around your pool) ASAP.

1

THIS SHADE SAIL

Beige Rectangle Shade Sail

Sometimes, throwing shade is absolutely necessary! But really, this bad boy keeps you cool around the pool, letting air through while blocking out some UV rays and rain.

2

THIS OUTDOOR BLANKET

Old Port Herringbone Royal Blanket

If you want to spend all day and all night by the pool (and like, why wouldn’t you?), you’re going to need a lil somethin’ to keep you cozy. This roomy indoor-outdoor throw, which is machine washable and dryable (#bless), is exactly what you need.

3

THIS LAWN BOWLING SET

The PINEAPP(BOWL) Set

Just because you’re an adult and apparently have a pool to decorate (like wow, go you) doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a yard game or two! (In reality, it just means you get the added fun of turning everything into a drinking game.) These pineapple-inspired bowling pins are SO cute, and the set also comes with a gold, confetti-filled ball to knock ’em all down.

4

THIS QUIRKY PLANTER

Bikini Gardener Pot

The polka-dot bikini…the lil plant friend…the fact that it was designed by decor queen Justina Blakeney…IT’S ALL TOO MUCH AND I’M IN LOVE.

5

THIS MOVIE SCREEN

Outdoor Movie Screen

What’s better than a drive-in movie? A swim-in movie, duh! This kit includes everything you need to stage an outdoor screening—just BYOProjector. Aquamarine, anyone?

6

THIS POOL FLOAT

FUNBOY x Malibu Barbie Private Jet Float

Okay, so you might not have a PJ (you know, what the Kardashians call private jets). And you might not have ever flown in one either. But, behold the next best thing: This Malibu Barbie-themed, private jet-shaped pool float. Why blow all your money on PJs when you can blow it on blow-up toys, am I right?

7

THIS TOWEL SHELF

Teak Wood Towel Shelf

“Wow, you really have your life together, don’t you?” –everyone who comes over to swim, probably, after seeing all your pool stuff organized on this sleek shelf.

8

THIS OUTDOOR RUG

Sand Outdoor Rug

Real ones know that rugs aren’t just for indoor spaces. Outdoor rugs like this guy aren’t afraid to get pool water on them (just hang them to dry if they get super soaked) and can make *such* a big impact in a small space.

9

THIS HANGIN’, SWANGIN’ CHAIR

Saxon Chair Hammock

Let’s be real, hammocks are great and all, but they’re hard to get in and out of and they take up a lot of space. And don’t get me started on the set up. This vibey little statement chair is everything your standard hammock could never be and she’s like, a lot cuter.

10

THIS ACTUALLY CUTE HEAT LAMP

Standing Heater Lamp

Those clunky metal heaters you see when you’re outdoor dining? Forget about them. This charcoal-finished standing lamp is their sexier older sister, and she’s here to make post-swim shivers disappear forever. (Bet you never thought you could be so attracted to an appliance, did you?).

11

THIS OUTDOOR SHOWER

Outdoor Shower

POV: You hop out of the pool just as the sun is starting to set. You have a happy hour beverage on the horizon but you need to rinse off first. You hop in this outdoor shower you installed just steps from the pool. You get in and what’s left of the sun kisses your face as you step under the steamy stream. You dream of your first marg as you rinse away the chlorine. Life is good.

12

THIS ALL-WEATHER POUF

Diogenes Ottoman with Cushion

“You get a pouf! You get a pouf!” –me to everyone who asks the best way to improve literally any space anywhere. Need somewhere to rest your bikini’ed bottom? Pouf. Need a place for your sunnies and beach read? Pouf. Always, always pouf.

13

THESE HANGING LIGHTS

Edison Bulb Indoor/Outdoor String Lights

You can’t always swim under the stars. But you can always swim under these twinkly lights. Wait, did it just get magical in here or is it just me?

14

THESE PATTERNED TOWELS

Beach Towel

These towels do double duty: They dry you off in a *snap* and they add some cute color to that pool deck of yours. (Sorry not sorry if you end up buying all four colors.)

15

THIS FIRE PIT

Steel Wood Burning Outdoor Fire Pit

The s’mores plug of the friend group is always the best person in the friend group. And that could be you, boo. Also like…who gave this fire pit permission to be so gosh darn CHIC?!

16

THIS TABLE/COOLER COMBO

Keter Bevy Bar Table and Cooler Combo

Did I just…introduce you to…the best thing to ever happen to your pool parties? Yes, yes I did. This baddie is a bar table and a cooler all in one, designed to save you space and keep those happy hour bevvies cold as ice.

17

THIS DIVIDER

3-Panel Folding Room Divider

Sometimes all you need to make a space feel ~fresh~ is to add a little dimension—and that’s where this adorable bamboo-and-rattan screen comes in. Section off a reading nook or a place to dine al fresco and prepare to feel like you have a whole new patio. (Also works as a makeshift changing room!)
