Happy Dance Time!

I've always dreamed of having an exotic zebra rug, but after seeing the price tags or stomaching the thought of hunting one myself (I actually have a friend who does a yearly trip to Africa and has come home with a couple, no joke), I figured a cowhide print would be better suited for my beer budget. 

Wellllllll, then I got to thinking what if the stripes rub off??  It would totally be my luck to spend a few Benjamins on a fake zebra and it last 6 months --The things that run through a designer's mind right?  So my investigation moved on to just a normal cowhide in black and white, same effect maybe? And I already have a shag zebra patterned rug in my office so I don't want to be that girl who has an animal print problem (Hello New Jersey!)  Long story longer, I found some great options on Ebay and I am now the proud owner of this beauty for wait for it........less than $60! Its brand new, 5'x4' and will go great under my coffee table layered over my sisal rug.  I can't wait to show you!

And of course and few more inspirations for you~

This wall rocks too!
Another back wall that makes me :)
Just adds that little somethin' somethin'
These frames really hit it home!

PS - Sorry if you are offended by the use of real animal fur.
