The Deal of the Day

So I've been casually looking around for an area rug for our bedroom.  The floor is pretty cold in that room since our bedroom is above the garage so I've been thinking that it would be nice to get a rug in there.  Since it is going to be summer (hopefully) it obviously isn't a priority at the moment-- but, I am open to deals.  I've been looking around at a few options but so far haven't been able to commit.

Here were a few contenders...

West Elm Andalusia Dhurrie -- been eying this one for a while... but since it's not available for international shipping it would be a major pain trying to figure out a way to get one. 


I really like the Tarnby Flatwoven Jute Rugs from Ikea.  They are well priced and add a nice natural element to a room. 


But, then I found this one at Home Sense this morning.  I hadn't been to Home Sense in weeks (out of town guests, sickness, and all around busyness will do that to you) and was pleasantly surprised to find this navy and white rug!


(excuse the iphone picture-- Doug's got the camera today)

And at $59.99... it's a steal.  This rug is 1/3 of the price of the Ikea rug and 1/5 the price of the West Elm rug.  And-- I had been looking for some bold pattern in here for the summer.  A few weeks ago I had been considering covering my Euro pillows in a Dwell Studio fabric, but after paying for the fabric, the shipping, and another solid fabric to use on the back of the pillows the total price would be way more than this rug.  The rug is looking like the better option... 

Yay or Nay?  I'm thinking Yay!!
