I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

Cozy up: New Rug

I've been looking for a rug for months (see here).  I knew I wanted something in the grey family and I had originally had my eye on this PB Teen lattice rug, but didn't want to spend the $400. 

While everyone else was shopping for new shoes on Cyber Monday, I stumbled across this Homespun Moroccan Trellis Charcoal Rug on RugsUSA.com.  With the Cyber Monday discount and free shipping, the 5 x 8 size came to a whopping $125 (FYI they are tax free in every state except New York).

I snapped these pictures late last night when it was dark, but you get the idea, right?

The rug is wool and is comfy to step on without the shedding of a high pile rug.  I may or may not get a pad for under it for some extra cushion, but for now it really defines my living room area and separates my dark coffee table (which I have been thinking of replacing) from the dark floors.
