Summer’s nearly here, and as it gets warmer we do more of our living and entertaining outside.  Outdoor cushions are a great way to brighten up your outdoor living space and enjoy some time outdoors.

At one end of my deck, I have a sitting area with two vintage cane chairs.  I had seat cushions custom made by Adams All Style Upholstery, as nothing ready made would fit the chairs.  The cushions are made from outdoor fabric.  You can buy similar Riviera Stripe Cushions at Temple & Webster.

Outdoor fabric is especially designed to reduce fading and inhibit the growth of mould on the fabric.  I leave my cushions out all year round and they get the  full western sun every afternoon, and they have survived well.  All I do is give them a clean from time to time.  I use 1/4 cup of mild laundry detergent (or Vanish Oxyaction) in 1 gallon (3.8 litres) of lukewarm water (30C).

As much as I love my monochrome black and white deck, outdoor cushions are a great way to brighten up and add colour to your outdoor area.  Here are some colourful cushions you might like:
