Top 10 Neutral Rugs + September Giveaway

We love how a neutral rug can act as the foundation for a well designed room to take shape around. While they lie in the background of a room, their color variations and even subtle patterns can provide the backdrop for other elements to pop. We’ve gathered up our top 10 neutral rugs to share, we’re also giving away a Canevas Abstract Rug from Gan Rugs, so keep reading to find out how you can enter to win.

Neutral rugs may not be the star of a room, but we love them just the same. They also come in more shades than you think, from beige, gray, white, taupe, cream, there’s plenty to choose from and they’re not just confined to a solid color either.
