CALGARY BY DESIGN

Interior designer Heather Draper will be presenting on the Calgary Home + Design Show main stage.

More than 350 exhibitors on hand for 2014 Calgary Home + Design Show

KELSEY HIPKIN reporter/photographer Born in Calgary, interior designer Heather Draper spent seven years in Victoria before realizing her heart remained in Alberta. ?There?s a vibrancy,? she said. ?Calgary resonates this positive energy that I absolutely love.? Draper will be sharing that positive energy, as well as some ins and outs of interior design, when she presents on the main stage of the Calgary Home + Design Show Sept. 18-21. ?I?m going to talk a bit about the colour wheel and the science behind the colours,? said Draper, who heads The Heather Company, which specializes in design and décor. The company also manufactures its own bedding line here in Calgary, selling its wares in stores across Canada. ?You know how you can pick a paint colour and you think it?s really great? And you get home and its pink? But maybe you have cherry hardwood so it didn?t look pink in the store. ?[I?m] going to be talking about things like that ? how colours slide around. ?We deal with a lot of colour around here.? This year?s Home + Design Show will feature more than 350 exhibitors who will be showcasing everything from appliances to window coverings over three days at the BMO Centre. ?I think [the show] is great for so many various businesses in Calgary,? said Draper. ?I think [it?s] one really great venue that Calgarians have absolutely come to rely on to really find the best of the best of the products available in the city.?
