It's been a rainy week in NYC, and I've been left dreaming of the sunbeams I hope are heading my way — summer rain, it turns out, does not make me feel fine. Instead of dwelling on the dreary weather outside my window, though, I've decided to inject a little sun directly into my home courtesy of these fun accessories.

Even if you're surrounded by sun — color me jealous — you'll love these pieces and the instant jolt they add to any room. Who wouldn't want every day to feel like a sunny one?

1: Sunshine Decals

Wall decals may have a reputation for being more kid-friendly, or even a little cheesy, but these swirly suns are just plain fun. Add a few to a utility space, like your laundry room or bathroom, to perk up the place in no time.
