We’re inside working on some projects, but we’re dying to get outside in this gorgeous Spring weather! To satisfy our craving for sunshine, we’re playing with these fun indoor/outdoor fabrics. These bright, bold colors are so fun. Patterns can be used anywhere, and we’re loving these Sunbrella fabrics for porch furniture or a fun ottoman inside. What do you think?
