designer lori andrews

I haven't met a Canadian I haven't liked yet. And Lori Andrews is no exception. She lives in Calgary and is one of those oh-so-talented types that has a multitude of epithets next to her name. Interior decorator. Artist. Photographer. She is also an author. Her latest book is Lori Andrews Interiors, a realistic guide to decorating your home from the self-proclaimed 10-cent designer. Oh, and I love, love, love that first pic.

Which five words best describe you? Creative, Fun, Focused, Friendly, Slightly Obsessive.
What was your first job and what path have you taken since? My first job was at Calaway Park, our local family amusement park. One of my duties was to man the Pop&Floss (popcorn and candy floss machine). One day while I was attending customers, I inadvertently left the popcorn in the burner too long. It caught fire. I burned down the Pop&Floss. Since that time I have become very detailed oriented. I always try to think of all the possible scenarios before I approach a problem. teehee
