ROMAN POOL

Another Julia Morgan favorite is the Roman Pool at Hearst Castle, built between 1927-34 in San Simeon, CA. The indoor pool is decorated floor to ceiling with 1" glass tiles in blue, orange, and gold. I visited Hearst Castle as a kid fresh out of a chicken pox haze and the decadence of the pool has left an impression on me ever since.
