1. Airy, Lattice Pavilion

If you have a vast, minimalist yard, an airy latticework pavilion might be the perfect pairing for your pool. The open feel and airflow of the latticework are ideal for hotter climates, as it allows the breeze to give adequate cooling. They also provide an excellent complement to square or rectangular pools, since the shape is mimicked throughout the latticework.

For decor and landscape, pair a lattice pavilion with delicate vining plants like clematis or slim-leafed varieties of ivy. Tall prairie or tropical grasses also beautifully complement the structure of the lattice. The modern and minimalist decor both enhances the latticework, and some elements of rustic and farmhouse would pair nicely as well.
