We are on a roll with our outdoor projects during the hot summer months as clients are wanting to dress up their outdoor spaces. I want to share with our readers some outdoor inspiration as we settle into July. Pour a big glass of sweet tea and read on to learn a bit more about our favorite products that are sure to bring style to your sunny days.
Thibaut’s Oasis Collection outdoor fabric is colorful, tropical and just what the doctor ordered for our hot Arkansas months. As we sit poolside, it’s bright island feel makes me think of the Caribbean.
Since I am on the Thibaut trail today, I want to share one of my favorites from the Oasis Collection, their Shambala leopard. I love this fabric because it transitions well to indoor projects. We tend to specify outdoor fabrics a lot lately because the of the versatility of using a stainproof fabric inside. So many of our clients have children and pets, therefore we have to be quite cognoscente of staining and wear. Did you know that Thibaut’s outdoor fabrics have a five year warranty against stain and fading?
I have been a fan of Pavilion Outdoor Furniture for quite some time and am in love with their new Empire collection. Pavilion has several finishes to choose from and it is sometimes hard to make a decision with all of the lovely shades. I am specifying outdoor furnishings in a gunmetal finish as of late, rather than the bronze pictured above. Things are lightening up a lot in residential outdoor design.
Selemat Designs is a valuable resource for trending outdoor chairs. I adore their Regeant 4 Season Dining Side Chair in blue. This powder coated aluminum chair upholstered in Sunbrella quick dry fabric is stylish and functional.
Hope you enjoyed this month’s outdoor style blog, I look forward to bringing you more fab trends in August. Stay cool!
