ANIMAL INSTINCTS: Now that the holiday glitter is long gone and the sun is finally peeking out from behind the clouds, maybe you’ve realized your living space looks a little, uh, stale in the light of day. Know what? Perking things up doesn’t have to break the bank. In fact, an affordable piece of flair can take a room from flat to fierce faster than you can say “safari”. We like World Market’s Zebra Brown Rug for just such an update – it’s chic, neutral (without being boring) and priced quite nice, indeed. Add a couple of throw pillows and you’ve got yourself a mini-makeover. GET IT: On sale for $31.99-$71.99; available only online from World Market.
