What color should I paint my outdoor furniture?

I have some brown wicker furniture that is fading from being outdoors - I need to paint it to protect it from more sun and rain damage.

I do not want to paint it white.  I was thinking either brown or turquoise....but I'm open to other suggestions.

The furniture is on the back porch backing up to the house - the house is painted a cream color - the furniture will back up to this color wall.

The furniture has cushions, which I will recover after I decide what color I am painting my furniture.

If you have any suggestions for color, if you have the name and brand of the color, that would be super helpful, too.

THANK YOU!!

Why don't you pick the fabric first and paint accordingly? It'll be easier to match paint to fabric then fabric to paint.

That's a good idea :)  I was thinking I would just get a solid contrasting color in fabric, so I figured I'd paint first.  But this is a good idea - I could even pick out a pattern with this method. :)
