My dream day off includes: sleeping in late, sipping coffee and enjoying a leisurely breakfast out. Followed by an afternoon of popping in & out of design stores along 11th Avenue.
But this week, as the Home & Design show rolls into Calgary with hundreds of exhibitors, I’m going to have to skip the sleep and get my coffee in a to-go cup so I can make the most of it!
Each year the show features new and exciting things to do and see. And this year IKEA will be presenting the White Room Competition!
Pristine white gets a shot of colour and creativity in this unique new feature. Four teams, each composed of three of Calgary’s most promising students and an assisting professor from Bow Valley College, will turn a white room (complete with five key furnishings from IKEA) into a work of art, using only their skills, a license to hack and a $1,000 budget to spend on IKEA home décor and accessories.
Now if you’ve ever had a sleep over at my place you’ll know how much I love white! My entire guest room cloaked in bright; it’s the perfect way to keep things looking new and fresh!
Now lucky news for my Calgary readers. I’ve spoken to my friends at IKEA and the Home & Design Show and they’ve offered up 4 tickets to the show AND a $100 IKEA gift card to help you achieve your new look!
Maybe white’s your thing too, or perhaps a pop of colour!
As always you’ll have 2 ways to enter.
1. Tweet the following:

2. Comment below and tell me:
“What’s your colour of choice?”
As the show opens tomorrow, the winner will be chosen and contacted by the end of the day!
I’ll also be giving out 2 runner up prizes of 2 tickets each.
Good luck and I’ll see you at the show!
