Interior upholstery - need inspiration

I would like to reupholster the cushions in the salon. They are dark blue velour right now. I would love to hear about, or see pics of, any suggestions of alternative fabric colors - alternative to going with the boring dark blue again, that is.

The interior wood is all teak. Lots of it.

IMO there's not much that's more 'nautical' than a teaky interior with deep blue cushions. But, as Mark (Copa) says a light coloured material (maybe not stark white) can brighten things up considerably. I've rarely seen strong patterns/stripes that were pleasing to my eye.. but of course that's a very personal, subjective thing.

In the late 70s and early 80s a variety of variously garish plaids seemed derigour - those must be gotten rid of and may they never rise again.;)
Ah, but they go so well with the contrasting Shag Carpets, Non?
Oui.... esp the bright orange.... ;)
