Its the time of winter in Minnesota where I start to stop believing that it will ever be summer again. After this long winter, I can’t wait to start spring planting and planning my patio decor. Last year I styled my patio with some amazing Tommy Bahama outdoor fabric and I want to build upon the tropical theme with my patio this year. Here’s the inspiration that I’m loving right now:
The mustard yellow velvet along with the green plants is amazing. I love the retro vibes!
A few years ago, I created new cushions for my patio bistro chairs. I made a pattern for the chair seats, cut out a board and foam to create the cushion, and then make a fabric shell with an elastic edge to go over it. I used elastic vs. upholstering to the cushion so that the shell would be removable to wash, dry, or replace.
This summer, it was time for a refresh! I found this amazing Tommy Bahama outdoor fabric that has inspired my patio theme for this year (can I grow pineapples in Minnesota??).
