FabSugar recently issued a Trend Alert on modern patchwork in fashion. I've been noticing this same trend in the home world as well. Since it's easy to err on the side of hippie excess, I advise starting slowly with this trend, and then gradually adding more accessories if you like the way patchwork or paisley accents update your home. My advice? Go for unusual color combinations and updated, fresh hues. While I generally love earth tones, they're going to look too outdated in a patchwork pillow or floor rug. Tell me, do you already have patchwork and paisley in your home? If not, are you interested in adding some?

I'm drooling over those Anthropologie pillows!! I love them all. And I've always loved a colorful quilt in the summertime.

I love these, but Casa, do you know where the one on the left in the inset came from? It's not the same as the pillow in the ShopStyle box.

Casa, I'm totally an addict when it comes to this stuff. I'm with you, I definitely have to buy one thing at a time and live with it for awhile. I've been looking for the perfect paisley hippie chic quilt or something similar for my bed....and throw pillows.
