    A Great Shag

    This Noor rug from Urban Outfitters looks like a dhurrie, but is actually a shag. It’s 5′x7′ and costs just $499. Certainly a more budget-friendly option than it’s $1k+ cousins.

    Steal of the Week: The Empire Rug from UO

    As much as I love castigating Urban Outfitters for their clothing quality and aesthetic, I have to admit their housewares section produces the occasional gem. I’m not saying it’s going to last a lifetime, but if you are looking for a rug you don’t have to guard from kids and dogs, this Empire rug is pretty swell at just $80 for a 5′x7′. Plus, it’s a nice departure from the now ubiquitous zig-zag.

    Unaffordable Obsession: Torridon Rug

    All week, I’ve been obsessing about Anthropologie’s Torridon Rug. I love the warmth of the shag, I love the color pallet. I just love it. And it’s on sale. For $999. Yikes. With a dog (and a budget), there’s no way I can justify paying that for a rug. So, I’ve been desperately searching for days to find a cheaper alternative.

    O.co had this hand-tufted wool rug that shares most of the color pallet for $500. Still too expensive and lacking the shag.

    JC Penney’s had this rug for $120. A little more muted than I’d like and a little bit cheap looking (also out of stock). Now I’m wondering if I can just buy a white shag rug and do it myself.

    Snake in the Grass

    Well, technically he’s on the rug. But close enough. I have to admit, he’s pretty adorable for a snake.
