Comfort Tops Fall Home Trends


Your decorated-on-a-budget apartment is trés chic, according to the home decor trends surfacing from the High Point Market, the world's largest home furnishings market, which wrapped up today in High Point, N.C.

Comfort, simplicity and neutrals were the top trends. So don't worry that your apartment is - ahem - minimal. And no need to feel bad about your slouchy armchair, it's back in style, too.

"Gone is the glitter, and anything that shouts 'Look at me! Look at me!' Instead, think subtle, soothing... substance," says Gale Steves of design consultancy Open House Productions.
