Q:I need your readers to help me pick out a rug to make my living room (larger photo below) less stark and clinical feeling. My budget is pretty small (think less than $300) - any ideas? Do I go with a pattern? A solid? A shag? Help!

Oh, and I also have a cat who has a penchant for rolling up in/clawing my bath mat. I'm afraid he'll try to do the same to any rug I get, so I could use tips on preventing that, too.
