When TODAY lifestyle contributor Jill Martin isn't finding us the best Steals and Deals or ambushing people with stunning makeovers, she stays busy designing fun and fabulous products for QVC. And her latest home collection is everything we didn't know we needed.
Jill's brand, G.I.L.I. (which stands for Got It, Love It), launched a new line of rugs, towels and pillows just in time for summer. The home and style expert even teamed with the brand Funboy for unique pool floats and Venus Et Fleur for beautiful rose boxes.
"I saved up and bought my first home when I was 40 years old," Jill told TODAY. "I spent literally every penny I owned for the home and then I said, 'How am I going to decorate this?'"
She looked for pieces but found everything to be very expensive, and she couldn't find the kind of bold prints she was looking for. So she created them herself!
"It's accessible elegance and the quality is still there," Jill added. "The line was created to either make over your whole space with love and happiness and excitement or to just spruce up your existing decor."
After more than a year and half of hard work, Jill will be officially launching the line on QVC Thursday at 11 p.m. Here are some of our favorite pieces from the affordable collection.
G.I.L.I. by Jill Martin Home Decor Picks

An outdoor rug like this is perfect for the front porch or back patio. It comes in four fun prints: black and white stripes, green palm, navy tropical, and zebra.
- 2. Oversized Hamptons Throw, $40, QVC
This large, cozy throw blanket is a great accent piece for your bedroom or living room. It has stylish pompoms and is available in four color options.
- 3. Cotton/Tencel Printed Sheet Set, $72 (usually $79), QVC
If you want to spruce up your bed for the summer, these printed sheets are perfect. They're made from a blend of cotton and lyocell, so they'll be comfortable and breathable even during the warmer months. The 400-thread-count set includes a fitted sheet, flat sheet and two pillowcases.
- 4. Large Lacquered Printed Tray, $44, QVC
Elevate your next dinner party by serving snacks to guests on a lacquered tray. It comes in three prints, and it's such a simple way to add a pop of color to your living space.
- 5. Oversized Bath Towels, $40, QVC
This set of oversized towels is a great way to spruce up the bathroom. Although we're loving the modern leopard print, the sets also come in palm and zebra prints.
- 6. Metallic Faux Fur Pillows, $45, QVC
"Instead of getting a whole new couch, if you add pillows, it's a small investment for a big difference," Jill said. The faux fur and metallic accents are also very on trend.
