Ugliest Autumn Centerpiece: Um, did St. Autumn come by and throw up on this table? Or maybe they were trying to find Jimmy's retainer that fell into the leaf bin and are now calling the mess a centerpiece. I wish they'd take this down a notch or 50.

Best Use of Burnt Sienna Paint: If you have a can of burnt sienna paint left over from god knows what, might as well put it to good use. I think this rusty brown foyer from House Beautiful is gorgeous.

fall rug

Loveliest Autumn-Inspired Rug That Probably Cost More Than My Mortgage: Isn't the rug gorgeous though -- my favorite autumn palette? Seen in the home of Brazilian fashion designer Carlos Miele via ELLE Decor.
