Rug Shopportunity (Home Decor Shouldn't Break the Bank)

After several years and two dogs (one being a puppy) our shag rug was starting to show her age. We bought her at Lowe's and she was about $199. Not a bad price for a rug that I loved and that got a ton of use. But after multiple shampoos, spills, accidents and lots of wear, it was time for a change.


I found this rug online -- it was on "Design Love Fest" when she revealed her new living room. I liked the subtle detail and of course the 'shagginess'. But the price tag for the 8 x 10 size was $1,091. My husband was not impressed!

That weekend we ended up at HomeGoods looking for new towels and what did I see?
My rug!! Well a pretty close approximation :) And for the same size, this one was only $299.

Please excuse my quick iphone quality pics :) :)
I cringe, yet pulling out my big camera seems like too much work today! 
I felt like a winner! The new rug is just what this room needed. A subtle pattern, a little pop of color, and it is really thick and plush.


I moved around some pillows from the upstairs and switched out chairs. This ticking wingback chair was in our bedroom.


I am so excited with the new feel.

  1. Love the stylish new rug, it's perfect in your room! I also just got an 8 x 10 wool rug from HomeGoods for $199! I always buy wool because I have pets and wool cleans well.

  4. That’s the best part of not rushing into buying stuffs. You will find other great deals when you do canvassing of prices first. By the way, that’s really one lovely rug. And it is not only you who feel so excited about it. Your dog seems have a great time too.
