A blissful summer

A blissful summer

It is a wonderfully quiet morning, and I am greeted by an orchestra of birds singing the highest song. The blackbird on the roof of the cottage by the pool sings at the top of its lungs, occasionally interrupted by the woodpecker that has taken to the thick oak tree next to the farmhouse with abandon.

Beautiful are mornings like this, I enjoy the azure color of the pool, the gentle caress of the sun on my back that spontaneously puts goosebumps on my arms. The tiles, which are slowly warmed by the sun, feel pleasant because of their appearance and texture.

Sitting on the edge of the pool, I note that the terrace and pool platform, which make up one whole, are perhaps the most important factor of this whole.

The RAW Stones outdoor tiles we found exude tranquility and have a pleasantly robust appearance. This is exactly what we had in mind, a sturdy terrace that is not too present, but with a pool surround that had to be manufactured from the same material.

RAW Stones has hit the nail on the head as far as I am concerned with this Abbey Exterior series. The color schemes, playful way of laying (wild dressing) and beautifully rounded pool edges that - I later learned - can also be used as steps, give our patio a very relaxing atmosphere.

I am looking forward to summer, have also decided that we are going to enjoy our garden and pool and so not go abroad. Not between rows of passengers, not in traffic jams, but just at home.

The very thought makes me eagerly look forward to a blissful summer with my family and friends.
