More Design In A Day...

Autumn Hues are continuing to inspire me (despite the 105 degree weather we're having) and although I have been very neutral-minded in terms of rugs, I love the idea of a warm, patterned rug to spice things up. This rug from West Elm has a great pattern and would make a perfect runner.
