Outdoor Furnishings:
  • Time is Now!!!
  • Uncover Furniture
  • Access for winter damage, can it be cleaned? Tip: Lightly Brush or clean outdoor cushions with a mixture of water-bleach, unzip covers and throw in the wash
  • What can't be saved should be redone with new fabric. Tip: If you are looking to save some money, consider mix-matching outdoor sets with solids and stripes from sunbrella or even new prints on some pieces while saving others. Note, not everything has to be redone!
  • Designer Fabric Showhouses are showing amazing new collections including Schumacher's Trina Turk Collection Tip: To save money consider some of the hot new trend fabrics for small pieces, new throw pillows, outdoor dining chair cushions verse chaise lounge!
  • Choosing Colors Tip: pull colors from your favorite flowers, surroundings like the roof, shutters, rock formations on property, pool  and house color.
  • When decorating outdoors you can also pull from inside themes.  Bring out objects that will weather well. Iron vases, candle sticks and bins that can conceal outdoor toys and supplies.
