I've been searching for fabrics for my sun porch for a few months (enter semi-grumpy sigh here) - I have an amazing talent for envisioning things (typically home decor related) that do not exist. In this case, it was fabric. Ugh!!! I wanted an orchid purple in a Sunbrella-type fabric. My only other condition was that it needed to go with browns because I wanted to keep the same rug on the porch. I thought I toss in some orange accents to make it real fun & funky.....yeah, keep dreamin' when you can't find anything!!
So this week I rethought my search and decided to forego the Sunbrella-type fabric. Yes maybe it will fade faster, but at least I had some choices. Even though I switched from orange accents to chartreuse when I found this fun chartreuse print, I couldn't be happier with the results. I was even able to use some of my Simply Chartreuse ribbon from PTI as an accent on the chair throws.
I'm really happy with the results and I hope my mailman appreciates it tomorrow when he drops off my mail. I keep my margarita machine out there & I always wonder if he ever eyes it up :)
In case you're wondering, the fabrics came from JoAnn's. My chairs are from IKEA - I've had them for 3 years now and I love them more each year!! The bench was a clearance find from Marshalls - it has a funky fabric covering it, so I recovered it with a solid brown. My rug is also 3 years old and from Target and the wicker ottoman between the chairs is from TJ Maxx & More.
