The latest issues of online home decor magazines Lonny and Ivy & Piper featured a couple of things several times.
One is faux zebra hide rugs.
If you don't care to make my own fake zebra hide, there's now a ringer for the $700 Horchow rug available at CSN Stores for $101 (and free shipping) and at Overstock for $92.
The other item is chevron and its close cousin the stripe.
Premier Prints has both large and small zig zags for about $10 a yard. And here's a tip from Christian at Maison 21: Fabric.com has some of the same chevron for only $7 a yard.
The magazines are, as always, free.
