Natural Jute Rug
A jute rug is the perfect, neutral piece to easily and quickly balance the feminine and masculine energy in a space. Use the rug by itself, or layer it under another more colorful or textural rug. Because of the natural fibers, some jute rugs can be scratchy underfoot, so opt for a softer one for a bedroom.
