    Silly Design Question

    Hey All!

    I was wondering ... how many of you matched your outdoor decor (furniture, pillows, umbrellas, etc) to ...

    1. Your pool tile and/or color?

    2. Your house color?

    3. Your landscape colors?

    4. Did your own thing and didn't worry about matching anything?

    Thanks! I can't wait to see the answers!

    I don't aim to "match" anything....but rather "complement" the house, etc. My flowers tend to be chosen based on color, my outdoor pillows are different yet all share some basic colors.

    Re: Silly Design Question

    I didn't "match", but rather did a large color group (lime green, turquoise, yellow, orange, periwinkle, and red). All the cushions, pillows, etc are from the color group but are all different. I have stripes, flowers, solids, scrolls, and swirls.

    I just put in my landscape last week and aimed to coordinate the colors somewhat, but it's looking like my "peach" roses are more of a "pink", which is NOT in my color group...oh well...I love color!!

    Treated the pergola like its own space. Started with a colorful rug. Chose furniture cushions in a contrasting color. Haven't found chaise lounges for poolside we like, yet...new pool last year. Don't think we'll try to match or contrast with the pergola setup.

    Re: Silly Design Question

    Thanks all! I have a very distinctive house color and the pool is going to have glass tile in a very rustic setting. Just trying to wrap my head around the best way to compliment everything.

    House is Herbivore - Trim is creamy white and windows are a rustic red.

    My glass tile:

    Oh my! That house color and the tiles both are GORGEOUS!!! You can't go wrong! I'd play up greens and blues for sure, and the copper of your windvane would be a beautiful accent color too. Sunbrella makes fabric outdoor cushions in lovely blues and greens.

    Re: Silly Design Question

    Thanks so much Maddie!! On the front porch I pulled out the red from the windows.

    But with the green glass tiles in the pool, I feel like the red will be overwhelming. I think you're right - blues and greens with copper accents!!
