    Get rid of the iframe.

    Your content could easily be worked into your design without it, it would increase the usability, and would look much better.

    Okay, so I was 90% of the way through with writing a reply, and IE crashes, I did have relevant points to justify why;...

    So to cut things short, imho

    *Let the text flow throughout the page... http://www.bigbaer.com/css_tutorials....text.wrap.htm - Lose the condensed iFrame, it creates the effect of scrolling in 2 different windows on low resolutions.

    *Do use 'Georgia' as your main font for written content.

    *Don't <u>UNDERLINE</u> words. - Bold for titles/headings, italics for emphasizing words in a paragraph.

    *Do increase the CSS 'Line-height/Leading' of the page content.

    *Bug - Changing IE's text size dramaticaly reduces the size of the iFrame ? (Ctrl+Mouse wheel)

    *Use an 'eye-dropper' to pick out colours within images to help find suitable colours for the layout.

    *Place more visual emphasis/prominence on the 'Custom Interior Design'.

    *The grey/hot-pink looks some what out of place.

    *Use images as reference, maybe a stylish background texture associated with the decor ?

    Looks nice enough, but I'd ditch the 'welcome' image. I haven't walked into your shop (yet) and it always seems a bit 'cheesy' on the Net.
    I'd also swap the positions of the 'about us' and 'portfolio' links, on the basis that prospective clients are interested in what you can do for them, and not in you personally or as a company.

    Also, when I scroll down your index page and get to the bottom of the text, half the banner disappears off the top of the page - somewhat disconcertingly.
