Recently, the stars aligned and I found the perfect neutral area rug for the living room. I wanted an antiqued pattern with a bit of color but also completely neutral. I found that in this rug from Home Decorators Collection. I love the modern western graphic on it and the charcoal, gray, tan, and ivory color scheme. I feel like it gives me a lot of opportunity for the room.
I was so excited to get this rug on sale for 20% off plus free shipping. We originally measured for an 8x10 ft rug but they only sell these in 8x11 so we went with it and it worked out totally fine. For a good illustration of what size rug works for a space see here. Our living room is set up uncentered so we had to figure out the layout to coincide with an off-center fireplace/tv and bookshelf space (not pictured). We put the rug against the far wall and left space around the perimeter. The recommendation is to leave at least 18 inches between the rug and a wall, except, I would say when you have an asymmetrical space like we do.
This rug is soft and so nice. I am completely in love with it. I highly recommend it to you if you are searching for the perfect neutral rug. The living room space looks 100% better with the area rug added. It really anchors the entire space, I was so blown away by what a difference it made.
Hope you have a lovely Monday!
