Matching Outdoor Pillows with Outdoor Rugs?
Creating a cohesive space is the main goal when decorating, but matching outdoor throw pillows with outdoor rugs can be a difficult task. Much like putting together an outfit, the best way to make cushions and indoor outdoor rugs look like a set is by picking out a color theme. Grab your pillow, or look at your rug, and search for an overarching color theme that you can work with. Let’s say you have a burnt sienna cushion with a colorful southwestern print, you can choose a matching rug in either that burnt sienna color or one of the hues in the print. Whether you have a patterned, textured rug or colorful outdoor pillows, following this technique is a fail-safe way to ensure that your outdoor textiles look harmonious and balanced.

Best Fabric for Indoor Outdoor Pillows?
The best fabrics for indoor-outdoor pillows fall into two camps: synthetic and natural. Synthetic fabrics like polyester, PVC, vinyl and polypropylene are weather resistant and lock out moisture so outdoor cushions stay fresh and are mold and mildew-free. These fabrics also stand up to sun damage making sure that your pillow patterns stay vibrant against the beating heat of the sun. Natural fabrics like cotton canvas and duck cloth are heavyweight fabrics that are inexpensive and durable. They come in a variety of shapes, prints and patterns, and are fairly easy to find. However, they are not as weatherproof as synthetic fabrics but you can always add a protective coating to ensure that they last the test of time.
What are the Best Pillow Arrangements?
The best pillow arrangements are all an exercise in symmetry and asymmetry. Modern placements have two outdoor pillows at each arm of your outdoor sofa and an oblong cushion placed at the center. This creates a playful symmetry and leaves plenty of opportunities to be experimental with colors and prints. A more traditional look is perfectly symmetrical and ordered, with either one or two pillows arranged at each side of the sofa. If you want something more eclectic and unexpected, place three or five pillows on your couch and arrange them in an effortless and asymmetrical way. If your patio set does not have a loveseat or couch, you place an outdoor throw pillow on every chair. Or, be more playful by putting a cushion on every other chair.
