New cushions for my back porch

My back porch was in desperate need of a makeover. The old cushions were faded and the nautical stuff was old and dusty. This is the porch from 2009.

I bought this duck fabric at Hobby Lobby for $5.00 a yard. After using the fabric on my sister in laws cushions I just had to have some for myself. I got all they had in that fabric and all of the stripe they had. They match perfect. I love my blue curtains, but they really don't match. Any suggestions on changing them?


The shelf, picture frame and the vase are all Goodwill finds.
This was ugly white on the porch and I painted it with some spray paint I had. This picture frame and clock is also from Goodwill.

I love your porch! I don't have an area like this, and I really miss it. Your cushions look great. I like Lora's suggesting of just adding something a bit coordinating to like the fabrics together.
