So I've discovered that area rugs anchor a room and pull everything together. But they're so dang expensive! You can be lookin at $1000 for just a rug! That being said, I don't own a single one, but I plan to. That's because I've been shopping around at overstock and csnstores.com and I've found several that I LOVE. Once we actually know where we're living and our color schemes I'll recruit Aaron for his opinion (and permission!). These are all around 5x8 ft which is a decent size I think and they're all under $200!
