Cheerful Outdoor Furniture and Fabrics

cheerful outdoor furniture and fabrics

The sunny summer weather of last weekend sent me on a quest for bright and fun outdoor furniture. I tried to look for the unexpected. My first stop was Living etc. After all, all their 2010 issues are a burst of colorful rooms.

I like the boldness and warmth when pink, orange and red meet.

No need to change your outdoor furniture to bring them to the current home fashion. It can be as simple as updating your cushions. Or you could add a colored metal side table or a bar cart to your outdoor space.

Everything does not have to match. A big lounge outdoor sofa can mix patterns as long as you restrict it to a uniform palette. With individual seats, you can group them to suit your needs. This design reminds me of Ligne Roset.

  1. The blue lounger chairs look absolutely dreamy next to that pool. I love sail shades and comfy seating! I think I need a summer deck makeover :)

  2. Kim, Love how you selected these bright, bold and colorful outdoor looks. Totally agree with you about patterns not having to match. Our Chief Home Design Officer, Theresa, says the same thing about patio furniture! (And, not to be afraid to let them get wet in the rain. ;-) )

    @Lisa Ng – So wish you would have known about our Deck Out Your Deck Makeover. We just made over our Grand Prize Winner’s deck this past week. The deck went from “vanilla” to eclectic decor. Take a peek if you’d like: http://ow.ly/1OOUf
