Welcome to the CRN Interiors Newsletter  May/June 2010 Issue 14

Dear Client

Thank you to all of my clients who have been following my journey through my newsletter and welcome to my new clients. My mission is to keep it fresh throughout the year with interesting and current articles.

I'm working on changing my tag line and I need your help.  I want to know which one resinates with you. My first article has some ideas and suggestions and I would appreciate any thoughts you may have.

My second article reviews the NEW HUNTER DOUGLAS PRODUCTS FOR 2010.  It was great to see how Hunter Douglas continues to update and introduce new product lines every year.  Plus rebates starting June 1 to Aug 15, 2010 on Silhouettes and Pirouettes for $50 on Luminettes for $100 for no minimum or maximum purchased.

Why should I invest in window coverings?  You will find the answer in the "Ask Connie Column". For further explanation please give me a call to review your individual window needs.

Please follow me on Facebook on my personal page, Connie Ray Nakis or my professional page, CRN Interiors.  You can ask to be my friend on my personal page or sign up as a FAN on my professional page.  My new pictures are posted on Facebook before my website is updated.


I hope you enjoy my Newsletter and if any of your friends or family would benefit from my FREE hour of Interior Design, please forward them a copy and ask them to sign up.  You can now go on www.crninteriors.com and link to my newsletter archives at the bottom of all of the pages to see my past newsletters.

Featured Article

Q. Why should I invest in window coverings?
 
A.  There are EIGHT reasons to invest in window coverings for your windows.
