Biography: Dorothy Draper was an American interior decorator. She helped inspire a generation of home improvement devotees with her 1939 book Decorating is Fun!, subtitled How to Be Your Own Decorator. Stylistically very anti-minimalist, she would use bright, exuberant colors and large prints that would encompass whole walls.
