Pillows are the ideal opportunity for mixing and matching patterns, and they’re also essential for your porch swing! With an ever-growing selection of performance fabrics, it’s easy to find designs that speak to your outdoor space. Find a common element—like color—and look for contrasting patterns for the best result.

If you need more color in your life, look no further than your front porch! These homeowners chose a rich red tone for their swing and complemented it with summery blues and greens for a softening effect. White lattice panels are the perfect background, providing a subtle layer of texture and a touch of privacy.
