What material are the cabinets? Are you keeping current outdoor furniture? Will you be replacing the fabrics on the seating pieces? If so, I would select that item first and use the colors in those fabrics to pick your colors. Otherwise, I would tend toward the blues in the brick and pool plus lots of white.

Ideas: install a bead board ceiling. Paint bead board back splash in a blue matched to the pool tile trim. Paint walls & ceiling to match white cabinets. Perhaps black wrought iron handles on cabinets.

I would paint the walls a bluish gray and leave the cabinets white and just change the hardware. Maybe change the cushions in the chairs to a white!

Everything in photo is current owners. It will all be going except the pool table.

i really like the idea of bead board on the ceiling & wrought iron handles on cabinet!!
Cabinets are yellowish. Should they be painted white? What color is the bottom left color?

I'd paint cabinets white.
Jennifer Ott says the colors are as follows: "clockwise from top left: Peacock Blue GLB01, from Glidden; Caribbean Blue Water 2055-30, from Benjamin Moore; Hyper Blue SW 6965, from Sherwin-Williams; and Tidal Teal 5006-8B from Valspar". So I think the the bottom left would be Hyper Blue SW 6965, from Sherwin-Williams.

However, don't trust that color will be the right blue 4 U. You might have to test several colors. Here are a designer's ideas on choosing a wall color: http://www.lindaholtinteriors.com/2011/07/testing-wall-color-101/

There R many colors in this area. The colors that cannot be changed easily are: the stone floor (appears gray with some beige and rust & other colors), the cabinet counters (appear medium beige), the pool tile (shades of blue). There are also other colors in the space that cannot be changed easily.

All of the colors that R not going to change, have to blend with all of the new colors. Not an easy task.
If you use a blue as an accent color, I'd match blue pool tiles.

I like a white ceiling & white cabinets, walls a grayed off white taken from the lightest color of floor stone. It's a good idea to choose paint last & hold foam boards up to everything. You might find the bright blue back splash does not work & back splash would be better painted in the off-white of the walls.
Take the furniture etc into consideration, too: dark gray furniture looks good with touches of the blue tile color on pillows and on other accents.

I would start with a beautiful outdoor area rug and then paint to match, contrast and accent

As first suggested, you might want to select your furnishings and rug, then base the colors on what you've chosen. Blue and white will be the most cool and refreshing. And don't forget some softening curtains to catch the breeze. They can be movable or fixed in place. Although not a lanai, #2 below reminded me of your brick floor color (at lease on my computer) and plants will add so much life.

I would do a gray concrete countertop and a fun glass mosaic backsplash with lighting under the top cabinets!

No ideas yet on counter top, might have to wait a bit for that. Major renovations taking up majority
of budget. As suggested prior, to paint bead board white and cabinets.... again maybe soft grey for walls? Limited budget for mean time out side.
