Nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day than a shower in the open air. All you need is a little screening for privacy, access to a hot water line (unless cold showers are your thing), good drainage, and perhaps a place to hang a towel. Here are six irresistible shower designs.
1 Slate corner
After a day of surfing, Dawn Griffith and Phil Morgan like to wash off the salt outside their new San Diego beach house. The shower is tucked into an alcove next to the rear stairs; the slate backsplash and side wall of rounded faux river stone (Eldorado Stone, 800/925-1491) add up to a natural-looking backdrop.
