I’m working with a client who has chosen to freshen her home and part of this “refreshment” includes fabric.
She has two guest bedrooms and each has a window seat overlooking beautiful trees that were screaming for comphy  cushions.
Partly because she has active grandchildren, we chose indoor-outdoor fabric for the cushions.
We call it indoor-outdoor fabric because it’s come a long way from the heavy canvass always associated with outdoor material.
You’ll find examples that have the feel and texture of regular indoor fabrics. Two of my favorite sources are SUNBRELLA and DURALEE.
While indoor-outdoor fabric is extremely durable and fade-resistant, it’s not indestructible. However, it’s much easier to keep clean than many other fabrics. SUNBRELLA has a website, www.sunbrella.com/stainchart that gives instructions for removing a wide variety of stains.
The cost of this fabric from Sunbrella and Duralee runs from $25 to $130 a yard. With minimal care, you can enjoy indoor-outdoor fabric for many years to come.
Take a look at this photos from HOUZZ. They’ll show you examples of how beautifully they can be incorporated into your interior decor. You’ll see why bringing  outdoor material indoors is a good thing!
Indoor-outdoor fabric has come a long way from the heavy solids and limited stripes of yesterday’s outdoor fabric choices.
The perfect fabric for stools and chairs

Don’t forget Fido’s bed

Until next time…
Blessings from my home to yours,
Dedicated to helping you live your rooms—not the other way around
