Dollars or Pennies: Moraccan Rug

I love Moroccan diamond pattern rugs like a fat kid loves cake. Pattern, texture, warmth. Perfection. But this cake is $4k-$6k per slice. No way, no how. No cake for me.

Yesterday I was catching up in blogland and spotted the spruce up that Jenny from Little Green Notebook did for fellow blogger Joanna Goddard's NYC living room. There is an endless list of coolness to list off in this room. Go read her 2-part post detailing the super affordable, DIY updates. (Part 1 here and Part 2 here) But that's so similar to my Moroccan dreamboat. Where is it from?

Jenny to the rescue. Pottery Barn on Ebay!
The very elusive (not available directly through PB anymore) Tangiers Rug has a few listings for just $400 for an 8x10 size.

Yes, I'll have that second piece of cake now please.
