Big bold prints and bright colors usually make for a more eye catching blog post. However, I must confess I’m also attracted to more neutral color palettes. When investing in quality pieces for a comprehensive design, it is important to create something with staying power. While trendy fabrics can be fun, are you really going to love them ten years from now?
When it comes to choosing outdoor fabrics there is another compelling reason to choose neutral fabrics – the surrounding landscape. When you have a beautiful outdoor space or a wonderful city view, your outdoor furnishings and fabrics should complement what is beyond the deck, porch or patio and not distract from it.
These luxurious outdoor fabrics from Clodagh‘s Perennials line are a wonderful choice for outdoor (or even indoor) fabrics. Known for her sensuous organic designs, Clodagh’s new Perennials collection “celebrates harmony, pleasure and indulgence.”
The rich textures and elegantly understated colors and patterns make for a line that is truly timeless. Not to mention it coordinates beautifully. I also love the hint of eclecticism this line carries as it reminds me of my trip to South Africa.
Rose Tarlow’s collection for Perennials is equally as beautiful and just as versatile.
