WOW 1 DAY PAINTING is Expanding to Kelowna

Headshot of Heather Cole

Why did you choose WOW 1 DAY PAINTING?

With a background in interior design, I have always really loved how paint transforms a room. I see WOW 1 DAY PAINTING as my way of working with many clients to transform their interior and exterior spaces.

What was your background prior to joining WOW 1 DAY PAINTING?

For 11 years I was an Interior Designer at Ethan Allen during which my services included: space planning, color selection, in-home consulting, right through to delivery which was often months later. Then I had the opportunity to take the past few years off to be a stay-at-home mom with our second child which was incredible.

What are you looking forward to most about being a WOW 1 DAY PAINTING business owner?

There are two things that I look forward to. Firstly Kelowna is one of the fastest growing cities in Canada and with such growth, there is the demand for exceptional services so I can't wait to bring WOW 1 DAY PAINTING to the Okanagan. Secondly, I am excited to build an amazing team. We spend more time at work than we do at home so I want to build a team that feels like family.

What are your passions outside of work?

My biggest passion outside of work is my family, with two sons aged 6 and 2, along with our family dog keeps our house hopping. I am a firm believer in getting out to enjoy the beautiful Okanagan so we are regularly at the beach or exploring parks.

How are you involved with your community?

We are fairly new to this community so still looking for ways to get involved.

Do you have any role models or key motivators in your life?

The biggest role model in my life is my Mom. Beyond being an amazing Grandma to our boys, she is a specialized Math and English tutor working with kids of all ages with learning disabilities. I can honestly say without her support and encouragement (and a few little pushes here and there) over the years I would not be taking on this exciting new venture today.

What makes Kelowna unique?

Coming from Vancouver we have found the pace is very relaxed and people are welcoming and friendly! We are fortunate to live in West Kelowna in an area that is filled with young families and a real sense of community.

Fun facts about you, or anything else you'd like to share?

Breakfast is my meal of choice all day every day! My world runs on coffee and eggs with a side of Dr. Seuss.
