Welting; yes or no? Paint' grey or white?
I am having new outdoor cushions made for some wicker pieces from the PO at our beach house. These are for a screened porch at the back of the house (unrelated to the kiwi stuff on the front verandah that I asked about before).
The walls are white, the floor is painted grey, and this is the rug:
I have already selected the fabrics. The grey coral goes on the chairs, and the grey starfish goes on the sofa. I will probably add the much-maligned pop of color with a throw or somesuch (but it has double french doors to my LR which has a lot going on so...).
One of the chairs, shown with new fabric choices:
A circa 1960s sofa (hard to imagine someone paired these cushions with the green, no?)
1. Paint the sofa white or grey or leave as is?
2. My seamstress wants to know if I want welting on any of these peices and if so, what? Id usually say yes, but those sofa cushion are "L"s and I don't know if it would look odd?
PS As an aside, I have always been a Dash and Albert fan, incredible value. But I find that their large cotton rugs are just too thin, and end up feeling like a tablecloth on the floor, always wrinkled, can't move furniture over them, etc. Small is ok, runners are ok, but I have a 9x12 I can't really use. Anyway, I bought two indoor outdoor rugs from them and I am really impressed. I was worried I would not like the feel but they are fine, esp for a beachhouse. And, they lay right, unlike the large cotton ones.
