    My patio set is from Martha Stewart’s collection. We purchased it about six years ago. Still in very good condition. It is a light distressed look green. The pillows that where with it are olive green on one side ; and green and white stripe on the other side. What other colors can I use with it; to make it look more to up to date with the latest colors that are out today.. You all carry such pretty colors.. Can you help me?? Oh, my house is gray. I sure would appreciate any of your options …
