2013 Color of the Year.............. EMERALD!!!!! According to Fawn Chang, Exciting Colors! Emerald is a rich, natural, jewel-tone green. Pantone, the world's global color matching leader, announced the color that we are being drawn to need. Based on research and experience, Pantone's experts determine the color of the year from what they see on the runways from designers, in our global economic climate and our social enviroment. Color is medicine and what the world needs now is Emerald. "Green is the most abundant hue in nature - the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum," Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Global Pantone Color Institute, said in a press release. "It's also the color of growth, renewal, and prosperity - no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity."

An article from the Wndow Covering Safety Council states that window coverings can pose a potential strangulation hazard to children. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, since 1990, more than 200 infants and young children have died by accidently strangling in window cords. Parents and guardians should replace all window coverings in the home with today's safer cordless products.

Back to school also means back to a regular schedule. Although we are all sad to see summer go, it is also nice to see our kids get back to a normal routine. Did I just hear all the kids groan? Back to school also means that the holidays are right around the corner. Did I just hear all the parents groan? Yes, I said holidays! Now that the seasons are changing, it's time to change or update your window treatments. Go from Spring/Summer to Fall/Winter designs, styles and fabrics. Or you can even have your window treatments be more holiday specific. Whatever you like, we can help you create beautiful designs that will enhance your homes beauty and decor! With the new school year beginning, please be aware of children walking to and from school and the many, many buses we all will encounter! Let's keep our children safe!
