11 Vintage-Runner Styling Ideas from Instagram

Elevated Neutrals: @jamiekeskindesign

Add dimension and texture to a nearly all-white kitchen with a vintage runner rendered in neutrals that subtly ties together the butcher-block island counter with the bamboo Roman blinds on the window behind the sink.

A Pop of Pink: @mrsparanjape

Make a luxurious all-white bathroom even more decadent with pops of ultra-feminine pink on a pair of twin runners, a Turkish towel artfully draped over the side of the tub, and a gilt-framed print by the sink.

Gray Gets Graphic: @beckiowens

This kitchen perfectly combines traditional cabinetry with farmhouse-ready accents, but it’s the subtly graphic pair of runners on either side of the island that add a contemporary touch that fully brings the space into the transitional style we love.

A Study in Color Theory: @sarahshermansamuel

Sometimes a jolt of contrasting color can really ground a space and tie it all together. Case in point: this cheerful and eclectic home office, which seamlessly mixes modern, vintage, and globally inspired finds.

Quiet Beauty: @studiomcgee

Sometimes a carefully curated color palette looks best when uninterrupted by bold patterns or extraneous hues, as in this gorgeous white, navy, and neutral kitchen by Studio McGee. In cases like this, you can still get the benefits of having a runner underfoot during dishwashing time by choosing one in a neutral shade that matches your floor.

Feel the Fade: @nicoledavisinteriors

The vintage runner in this Spanish ranch-inspired home is a perfect fit—both aesthetically and in scale. You can tell this runner was originally woven in saturated, vibrant hues, but we think the organic fade of the material fits the vibe of its new home to a T.

Continuation of a Theme: @citysage

From the terracotta tiles underfoot to the wall-mounted woodwork and colorful glassware showcased above the bed, it’s clear this enviable bedroom is paying homage to traditional Spanish style—and the colorful rug at the foot of the bed fits in perfectly with the theme!

Touch of Global Glam: @alexanderdesignbuild

This simply styled, globally inspired entryway is gorgeous. You might expect a woven jute or sea-grass runner instead of something patterned or bold, but the rich crimson really adds to the entry’s layered appeal.

Two Are Better Than One: @ashleyjohnsonpalmer

Not only does this rich crimson-and-beige runner perfectly complement the color palette of this Southwestern-infused entry, but it also anchors the butcher-block-top console above and adds balance to the space overall.

Unexpected Exoticism: @amberinteriors

This spa-like master bathroom is divine on its own, but it evokes a new kind of attitude toward luxury with the addition of a plush crimson runner. No white rugs here!

A Warm Welcome: @katemarkerinteriors

With rustic rope accents and a barn-ready pendant light immediately visible upon entry, one might imagine a nautical navy-and-white striped runner as a natural fit for this coastal cottage, but the unexpected dose of flair from the pink-and-navy vintage runner makes for a warm welcome indeed.
