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.

We looked at a lot of colors when we were redoing our interior. You can get some ideas online but seeing a color in person makes a huge difference.

What worked for us was going to the Annapolis Boat Show where we could see a lot of interior options in a day.

We went aboard a 61 Passport that had an unusual Ultraleather color called celery that my wife fell in love with. It's not something I'd have picked out of a color book but it looks great on the boat. We get lots of compliments on the interior and the cushions have held up great after four or five seasons.

Here's a link to a photo of our interior

(a little roomier) :p

BTW, green is notoriously inaccurate on computer monitors. The name celery pretty accurately describes the actual color.

We also made the cushions a little wider than stock, and that made them a LOT more comfortable.
