Advice Please: Which Fabrics for My Patio?


Ladies, it’s a new season here on my patio, and I’ve updated the linens on my DIY Pallet Daybed by dyeing them a fresh shade of blue. Now I’d like to make some pillows to complement the new look (as well as some new blue tassels for my fabric tassel garland that has held up so well for two years!). Here are some options I’ve pulled together. Which do you like? Let me know in the comments!

Here we’ve got a subtle blue/natural look going on with Premier Prints Home Decor Carnival Village in blue/natural on the large pillow and Jacinda’s beautiful design, Texas Modern Feather Wind in charcoal, on the small one.

For a bright, yet earthy look there’s Premier Prints Home Decor Zoom Zoom in village/natural, with Robert Kaufman Essex Linen in lime.

And for straight up bright summer fun here’s Alexander Henry Home Decor Sofia in tea/orange paired with Anna Maria Horner’s yellow voile.

So what do you think? Which should I get to sewing?

The first looks amazing to me, but not really your style? You might be bored after awhile.
The lime green fabric is great but the other is to… something… Colorful maybe?
So I say, go with the third option. Colorful and happy and summer-y!

I am sold to the yellow and orange bright look. The accent is coming out so well with summer colors and the lemon pitcher on the right.

I love the first one. JC’s feather fabric coordinates perfectly with your fabulous table! Plus, any sun-fading will just add to the look.

Definitely the first one! It’s so soothing. Plus you get to use Jacinda’s feather fabric. Bonus!

Surprisingly the first one is my favorite, and I am a gal that loves color and chevron. I really like it… the third one i only like, and the second is my least fav, but still nice. 🙂

Love the serene and inviting blues and grays with Jacinda’s feather pattern fabric. I love it!

I think the Zoom Zoom fabric would give the couch a punch of color, but I like it paired with Jacinda’s feather fabric instead of the lime. Then make welting or a flange edge out of the burnt orange color from the zoom zoom fabric on the charcoal feather pillows. Welting the zoom zoom in charcoal would pull them together too, but I don’t think you would need it.
