Leopard Love

So the rug I bought yesterday is full on leopard and at 9 x 12 it is huge!  Amid the grass, heat and fields of Brimfiled it can be really hard to decipher the the good stuff from the crap.  I must have deliberated for an hour about the rug before finally going back for it.  I am so glad I did.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it looks.  It isn't an antique or vintage Persian but it is a good quality wool rug and did I mention...huge.  I did a little Pinterest searching for some inspiration on how to style it.  I think it is going to be perfect in my future dressing room/office/4th bedroom in our new place.  I am so lucky to have friends, Erin and Lindsay, with such good taste to help steer me to the right decision.

Here is my beauty rolled out.  It needs a good clean but I think it is awesome.  I love that is has the hide pattern stripping too.  P.S.  It is not going in that room, and we are planning on staining the floors a dark color.
