Hi Casa! I just had my back deck redone and am looking forward to having guests over and enjoying it this Spring. I bought a new table and chair set to match one I already own. I think I'm going to leave the woodwork its natural color and my house is red brick so I'm feeling a bit limited on my color palette. I'd like to do a fun print but the only outdoor fabrics I can find are solids. What do you suggest I use for my patio furniture?
To see what I suggest and to give her some of your own ideas, just read more.
Cheers to you for getting on your outdoor decorating so that when Spring arrives, you can enjoy it. Your fresh deck, brick exterior, and black wrought iron patio furniture will actually make picking fabric quite easy. You could play it safe with solids but I agree with you — patterns are more fun and generally better at hiding stains. Country Living has a line of Sunbrella prints that are dreamy and would add the perfect amount of spunk to your backyard. A kelly green, cherry red, and a beige Ikat are my top choices. If you're not feeling up for the sewing task, there are some great deals on outdoor cushions at Pottery Barn, Pier 1, and Ballard Designs. Does anyone else have any suggestions for paint colors?
