Your front porch bench might not look like it has a lot of design potential now. But you can add a colorful outdoor pillow set to spruce it up. This mix-and-match set brings a boho pop of color. The different patterns all have the same color scheme for a tastefully intriguing look. Complement with a seagrass ottoman and a lantern to create a mini outdoor retreat.

When shopping for cushions, you might have noticed that they have a higher price than indoor ones. The better quality justifies the price difference, as outdoor pillows are made of high-quality materials that can withstand weather elements.

A cohesive color scheme will connect the different zones in your outdoor living area. This is very important if you love mismatched furniture but want to keep the look somewhat connected.

Use the same outdoor pillow set for the sun loungers and outdoor sofa to bring continuity. The navy and white combo brings a coastal look while flattering natural materials like wood and rattan.
