I think I've mentioned before that I want to do a navy and orange color combo for our side yard patio set.  Since I painted the faux bamboo set red-orange, I decided to go with  blue and white outdoor fabric for the cushions.

If I weren't so cheap, I would probably go with one of Trina Turks outdoor fabrics...

Trina Turk Blue and White Outdoor Fabric

I need 11 yards and I'm having the cushions professionally done so the costs could easily add up.

So I've rounded up some less expensive options...

Blue and White Outdoor fabric

All are from

I like the chinoiserie fabric in the middle but I'm leaning towards the navy options.
My favorites are the last 2 fabrics(bottom middle and right).
If I choose the bottom middle (Tempo Indoor/Outdoor Aztec Denim), I would do a contrasting red-orange piping.

If I do the bottom right (Tempo Madagascar Jacquard Denim Blue), I would do something like this...

(the orange being navy and the sides with the Madagascar fabric, also with contrasting piping.


I am also linking up this post over at The Pink Pagoda.
Jennifer is hosting a Blue and White Party.
Hope to see you there!

Happy Monday!

Thank you so much Charmaine for linking up today and for sending people over! I'm pretty jealous of your outdoor furniture. I can't imagine any I'd rather have!!

Love your choices. I'd go with navy cushions with Madagascar edges and possibly contrasting fabric pillows like the top middle with orange piping. Fun choices, hard to choose!
olioboard them?

This is my favorite outdoor color combo. I chose the same combination last year but with an orangier orange. All of my Sunbrella fabrics in blue are still perfect but the other fabrics (that happened to be orange) are faded. :(
I love the faux bamboo pieces that you have.
