At "poolside" keep the colors subtle and bright! I have used a Sunbrella pattern called Boss Tweed (which looks like a man's jacket) and then used a cord in unexpected bright colors to work with the Trax/Persimmon. The cord fiber is also Sunbrella so it will not fade. I am a big fan of over generous pool towels and this one from Robert Redford's Sundance catalogue is thirsty and has a wonderful pile. We keep several on had for family and friends. I guess the buzz at the pool this season is color & comfort.
