FEATURE ARTICLE: Blind safety Children

National Window Covering Safety MonthYour child’s safety is our top priorityBlinds and shades with cords can be dangerous to children. The
Window Covering Safety Council, a group of major U.S.manufacturers, importers, and retailers of window coverings,
provides education about window cord safety. Check out their
website for up to-date information and advice:

Because young children can become entangled in window cords that
are within their reach, the Safety Council urges parents and
caregivers to follow these safety rules: Safety Checklist: Keep cribs and beds away from windows. Make
sure all window treatment cords are short enough to be out of
the reach of children. Securely anchor all continuous loopcords to the wall or window frame. Repair blinds and shades manufactured before 2001 with “retrofit cord repair devices,” or replace them with today’s safer products. Opt for cordless treatments in children’s bedrooms and play areas.
Using safety in window coverings will help protect your pets, as well. Educate yourself and protect your family.Call me if you need any help. Your child’s safety is important to me!

color of the month: Orange

Orange is definitely a color that draws attention. It evokes
feelings of excitement and enthusiasm. Orange increases the
body’s metabolism and heart rate, making you feel happy and
energetic. There is nothing even remotely calm about orange.Despite its cheerfulness, pure orange is often too bold and
brilliant for use in interior design – at least as a main color
– but it’s a wonderful color to use as an accent. Toss some
orange pillows on a subdued couch to brighten up a room. Add a
vase of bright orange flowers to enliven a space. Paint one wall
orange as an exciting focal point.Tints of orange are very popular in home design. Think peach,
apricot, and terra cotta. These orange shades create warm,
welcoming environments.
When you’re ready for more fun, think orange!
