Eye on Design Drapery, Shutters and Blinds is commemorating its10-year anniversary of serving thousands of home owners and business by providing beautiful and functional custom window treatments.

“FoScreen Shot 2015-09-18 at 5.21.59 PMr the last 10 years, Eye on Design has had the privilege of creating one of a kind custom window treatments for thousands of homes and businesses,” said Jennaver Brown, co-owner. “We are so grateful to our customers for allowing us to be part of their lives.”

Jennaver and her husband Gordon Brown, who heads the installation department, started Eye on Design in 2005 with a mission to create custom options for their clients to help meet specific goals for energy efficiency, light control, ultra violet protection, privacy and design.

Headquartered in downtown Belleville, Eye on Design has grown to become the region’s largest, most comprehensive Window Design Gallery showcasing the premier collection of Hunter Douglas window fashions and custom drapery which are handcrafted onsite in its own drapery fabrication shop.

Their dedication for providing innovative solutions has earned them a top reputation in the industry that now boasts a strong local base of clients, but also national accounts in the hotel and insurance industry.

“From our first window treatment at a home on the west end of Belleville to now covering tens of thousands of windows at corporate headquarters all across America, we have been truly fortunate,” said Brown. “

Eye on Design has been dedicated to keeping the environment beautiful as well. Since 2005, it has recycled or re-purposed and estimated 10,000 pounds of old window treatments through its Project RENEW window treatment recycling program.

“It all began in the homes of our clients in 2005 when they asked if we would take their old window treatments away,” stated Brown. “ We did and we found organizations that would re-use those that were still in good shape. Those treatments that had no life left in them, we dis-assembled and recycled the components. In addition, we recycle all of our packing material.”

Eye on Design Drapery, Shutters and Blinds is open Monday – Friday from 9AM to 5PM and by appointment on Saturdays. They offer free in-home consultation for all residential customers by calling 618.257.9750.

Home Furnishings and Interior Design: Pantone Color Institute Announces 2016 Color Trends

PANTONE VIEW home + interiors 2016 highlights nine directional color palettes with innovative themes and forward-thinking style

CHICAGO, March 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — International Home & Housewares Show 2015, PANTONE ColorWatch Display (Hall of Global Innovation, located in the Lakeside Level 3 Lobby) — The Pantone Color Institute®, an X-Rite company and the global authority for color forecasting and custom color development, today unveiled PANTONE® VIEW home + interiors 2016 – Innovation and Impact, a trend forecast highlighting color trends for the home and interiors marketplace in 2016. Containing nine key trend palettes, plus individual color and material direction, PANTONE VIEW home + interiors provides home furnishings and interior designers with the color information they need to make those critical color decisions.”As media continue to move toward more evocative, imaginative and innovative uses of color to woo consumers, unexpected color stories are emerging,” saidLeatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “To capture attention and keep product lines relevant in the consumer’s eye, it’s important to understand the impact that this always-morphing innovation will have on color and design trends for 2016.”

PANTONE VIEW home + interiors 2016PANTONE VIEW home + interiors 2016 contains visual inspiration, suggested color harmonies, individual tear-out palette cards for each of the nine forecasted palettes, swatches of the 77 forecasted colors, and product imagery for use in presentations and storyboards. Highlighting additional insight and direction, a summary page provides a comprehensive color overview and a look at other factors influencing the world of home furnishings and interior environments. To enable digital design, PANTONE VIEW home + interiors 2016 also includes PANTONE COLOR MANANGER for direct download of all PANTONE Color Libraries into design software.

The nine palettes for 2016 are: Natural Forms, Dichotomy, Ephemera, Lineage, Soft Focus, Bijoux, Merriment, Footloose and Mixed Bag.

  • Unambiguous colors, including shades that are plumbed from natural sources such as warm rosy clay and sheepskin beige, give us Natural Forms.
  • Dichotomy reinforces the concept that opposites do and can attract as silver metallic, sunny yellow and bright cobalt blue combine with calmer versions of the hues.
  • Pastel-focused Ephemera blends delicate shades of wan blue, pale peach and tender yellow.
  • Lineage is a palette where shades of navy, black, tan and regimental green co-mingle with touches of brighter colors.
  • Soft Focus reveals subtle and/or muted colors, sometimes being described as “smoky” and always versatile.
  • In the French language, Bijoux means “jewelry” – a fitting title for this palette that gleams with drama and intensity across many jewel tones.
  • Merriment is full of joyful shades including vibrant greens and yellows contrasted with pinks and oranges.
  • Capricious color combinations with vacation-destination blues and blue-greens create Footloose – a palette that supports the idea of throwing off the constricting scheduling of everyday life and simply enjoying the freedom of the outdoors.
  • Mixed Bag is an assortment of eclectic patterns and prints, with exciting and unique colors like pirate black and mandarin red as well as violet and florid orange.

Choosing Colors For Your Home

February 13th, 2015

The interior design guide to coloring your home

  • Colour may be one of the pillars of design, but that doesn’t make its use any less complex.
  • Different tones can convey particular emotions, and choosing the right palette can add immense value to a project.

This great infographic by Studio 55 explores where best to use certain colours, such as the subtle use of blue spectrum light to promote alertness. Although largely focused on designing for the home, the information could prove useful for interior designers in public, commercial and educational applications as well.
