Vibrant Outdoor Fabrics



I love that almost every fabric manufacturer now has a line of outdoor fabrics.  My new fav in Schumacher features California fashion designer, Trina Turk fabrics that have vibrant colors and very yummy patterns....Here are just a few....Lots of color palettes and interchangeable choices.



Outdoor fabrics have come such a long way they now feel like the linens, chenilles and silks we are used to but with the durability to survive outside.




Lately I have been recommending outdoor fabrics more and more for indoor use to hold up in high traffic areas with kids and dogs.  "No worry" fabrics, who doesn't love that?



What do you think of the boldness of Trina Turk's new line? Do you like the bold direction she has chosen or are you a little more traditional?



Oh, I blogged about fabrics about this time last year and have a great source that I mentioned for great priced outdoor fabrics, check it out here....Bring Home The Beach and yes she carries the Schumacher/Trina Turk textile line.

I have always liked Schumacher designs and colors.....I even decorated our daughter's bedroom windows in their lovely fabrics way back in the '70's! Thank you for sharing....durable and beautiful is great combination! :)

I'm so ready to get the outdoor furniture out. Those fabrics are great & I agree they are good for indoor us as well.

I love the prints and bright colors. Great colors for the outdoors or an enclosed porch.

You're exactly right about outdoor fabrics coming a long way. It used to be tough to find vibrant, modern designs, but these are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.
