Colour Me Happy said...

OMG I totally agree with the black and white outdoor furniture plan! Last year I spray painted my 50's wrought iron table and chairs black and covered the chairs in a great black and white print! I just loved looking at them all summer long outside! And then a yellow tablecloth, with glass hurricane lanterns. Well there is nothing like my outdoor patio in the summer!

My favorite is Bay Island - I love the selection you have done!

I love the idea of decorating with black & white and then a hit of bold colour :-)

Hard to pick one favourite fabric, so I'm going to pick four :-D

Speaking of fabrics.... I just looked up Circlet by Barbara Barry. You're right, it's gorgeous!! Especially Glacier :-) Thanks for the heads-up!!

I have used the Kravet houndstooth and the large scale one by duralee...and they are both stunning! It was for the show Take it Outside, and they booth looked great on TV! Very graphic!

The choices in outdoor fabric are so much better than they used to be. They also wipe well for playrooms and such :)

Too bad we missed each other in Tofino; I would have hung around for an extra day :(

Have a nice time! Get a latte from Vincente's in Tofino...amazing!

I am so glad that manufacturers are giving us such a broad selection of outdoor fabrics which are now beautiful enough to use indoors also. My fav: KALYPSO.

I think I'm going to have to go with Bay Island becuase that's what we used on our patio here at the studio and it looks stunning :) I really like how even though it's black and white it still has a sense of warmth

I have found your site as I have been putting together a new scheme for my patio/atrium space. We have one seating area with white wicker and black and white awning stripe cushions. I am doing a black and white damask pillows trimmed with lime green fringe for the loveseat. I already have several lime green solid cushions. So we sprayed all the wrought iron furniture black and on the glider I will put more black and white pillows. On a built in seating area around the fireplace I am using the black and white awing strip fabric with green fringe for bolster pillows.
You don't have to do everything brand new!!!

Black and white color combination for outdoor fabrics really is a blast idea. They look fantastically great! I just loved your design. I'm really very fond of outdoor fabrics and hooking up into different designs with terrificly good ideas and I've found your article hit what I was actually searching.

Looking for a harlequin print in black and white for outdoor? Any ideas?

MEADE DESIGN GROUP said...

Hi! Cindy,

I have not seen a harlequin print for outdoor fabric. Ralph Lauren has a check pattern in their American Collection that you may be able to use in a 45 degree.

I hope this helps!
