Guest Picks: 20 Outdoor Fabrics for Less Than $15 Per Yard
Outdoor fabrics that hold up well to the elements (both inside and out, by the way) have come a long way, and you can now get almost any kind of pattern and style your sun-loving heart desires. Here are a few that I have my eye on — and they all cost less than $15 per yard! — Daniela from Aesthetic Oiseau
I love this take on chevron! I could see this colorful tile-like pattern on the bottom of a clear Mediterranean pool. The colors are amazing.
I’ve always loved this sea life pattern, and this colorway with touches of lavender and tangerine is my favorite.
Red and aqua are stunning for summer, and this fun floral would look amazing with the geometric fabric below as an accent.
I love this geometric pattern in bright pops of red and aqua. It’s a great companion to the previous floral fabric.
The asymmetry of this yellow fabric keeps it feeling modern. I think it’s the perfect dose of sunshine for an outdoor space.
This outdoor fabric feels very reminiscent of the Beverly Hills Hotel. I would totally used it on a vintage set of metal outdoor furniture spray painted yellow.
If your outdoor space leans a little more bohemian, the global feel of this chevron would be right at home.
I’m really loving the colors here: French blue and watery aqua. It’s perfect for poolside furniture, and the ikat is a complete winner as well.
Bring your animal print outside with this fun and funky zebra print in a hip gray.
If your backyard is Palm Beach chic with lots of lattice patterns and bamboo, this fun geometric is for you.
I love this cobalt blue color paired with modern metal outdoor furniture.
Here’s another winner for the boho crowd. I love the strong paprika color mixed with mustard in this ikat.
I’m a fan of anything orange, and this fabric would be really fun paired with fuchsia pink. I’m thinking a pair of club chairs (cushions) on either side of a big pink umbrella.
Pink and green is a color combo that always screams summer to me — I love it! This flame-stitch fabric would be great as a big long pillow on an outdoor settee.
There is something very Lily Pulitzer about this one, don’t you think? I love its preppy modern vibe and wonderful blue tones.
Outdoor fabrics and decorating don’t need to be all about crazy color. You can create a sophisticated space with more muted tones, like the ones in this jewel-toned paisley.
Yes! These sailboats have my heart. If you are anywhere near a sailing town, or perhaps are a land-locked sailing enthusiast, this is for you.
Give me a set of white wicker furniture and this fabric, and I’ll be ready for a delightful afternoon spent sipping sweet tea and reading a great book.
Don’t forget the wonderful range of solid tones of outdoor fabric! This pink hue is a perfect punchy color that will pair well with almost anything.
These watery medallions are perfect for cabana-style lounging.Next: Screen Outdoor Furniture From the Sun
