People are Talking: Pick-Me-Up Patterns

The seasons are changing, and it's nearly time to say goodbye to summer until next year. It's no wonder that this month everyone's trying to capture a touch of summery energy in their home with bright, dynamic patterns. Capture the lively, fresh feel of summer all year long with a few of these recommended products.

Recycled Boat Wood Beach House Clock Isabella Ikat 20x20-inch Pillow Pillow Perfect Cerva Pumpkin Throw Pillow Chevron 16.5-inch Throw Pillow Handmade Luna Marrakesh Trellis Wool Rug Nairobi Denim Printed Cotton Curtain Panel



Throw pillows are one of the easiest, and cheapest, ways to add a little color to your space. The Isabella ikat pillow, which comes in eight colors, is a favorite at glo.msn, and Margaret Ely at The Washington Post picked out this blue-and-white chevron pillow and the Cerva pumpkin throw pillow.

The little touches of pick-me-up style don't stop there! Give your place a little boost from floor to ceiling with fresh printed curtains, like these Nairobi printed curtain panels featured by The Washington Post (they're giving us a lot of love!), or a unique clock. Woman's Day loves this recycled boat wood clock, which also comes in several colors. A bright rug underfoot can do wonders for your home, and The Krazy Coupon Lady picked the Marrakesh trellis wool rug out as a "knockout knockoff" of a more expensive rug. And frankly, I like ours better anyway.

How do you keep things bright and lively in your home throughout the cold, dark months of fall and winter?

That clock is so fun! I bet it would be perfect in my craft room.

I've been in the market for a new rug. I love this one!
