Celebrity Pools

Well, it's officially summer in LA and this past week has been hot, hot, hot! My 1940's bungalow in Bel Air has neither AC...nor a pool. Seeing these celebrity pools featured on the Elle Decor website makes me a tad envious about now.  My fellow Bel Air neighbor Monique Lhullier has yet to invite me to come over to lounge by her pool (I house sit, FYI). Little do they know I've been sticking my head in the freezer to cool off!

So here's where these celebs spend their hot summer days...

Fashion designer Monique Lhullier's pool, original to her manor-style home located in Bel Air.

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo's Mediterranean-style setting at her  home in the Hollywood Hills.

The infinity pool at the Malibu home of Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber offers stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.

The Hollywood Hills home of actors Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor has a bi-level pool deck with an exotic vibe.

After creating a book called Pools (Rizzoli), fashion muse Kelly Klein knew a thing or two about how to create one for herself. She designed a black-bottom pool with soapstone coping and sleek steel railings at her Florida home.
