If Flannery O’Connor had written a design book, perhaps she would have called it “A Good Rug is Hard to Find.” This is one such rug. It’s made its way into over 2,000 homes, and also a whole lot of Instagrams. It works for a huge variety of styles, it ties the room together, and it’s equally comfortable being the center of attention or a supportive team player.

This is the Elodie rug, designed by Taylor Sterling of Glitter Guide and available at Lulu and Georgia. It’s a flatweave rug, with a pastel kilim pattern inspired by vintage Turkish examples. If you’re considering this rug (or one like it!), read on to see examples of ways you can use this rug in pretty much any kind of home.  Side note: it’s also 50% off. The 3×5 size is $124, and the 5×8 is $329. For a rug, that’s a pretty good deal.

As styled by Oh Joy, the rug’s pastels are the perfect complement to a room filled with various shades of pink. The cool mint background of the rug creates a nice balance.

A patterned rug like this one is a great way to add a little color to a dining room or office, as seen on May Designs.

It can work in a bedroom, too, as seen on Emily Henderson Design. If you love the mix of white and woods and textures that’s very popular right now, a kilim is a great way to add a little color to the space without being too over the top.

The soft colors and playful patterns also make this a great choice for a kid’s room, like in this design by Kailee Wright.

I love how the crib, the rug, and the ocean print all harmonize perfectly in this room by Em the Gem. The kid is pretty cute, too.

Here’s another baby room shot from Chantelle Page, who paired the rug with a tropical print wallpaper and lots of macrame (a great combo for an adult room, too).

Oh and by the way, this runner size is only $164—perfect for a little hallway magic.

A rug in the kitchen? Sure, why not! Just remember to add a pad underneath so it doesn’t slip. This design by Kelli Lamb is cat-approved.
