Over 25 years ago, Natalie Lagace got involved in the building industry by accident. After buying their first home in Calgary, Natalie and her husband Kelly Coghill decided to tackle a remodel to create their dream home. This quickly led to the discovery that they had a talent for building and design. Creative Innovations & Designs Inc, a Baeumler Approved builder, began by building luxury homes in Calgary’s inner city. Ten years later, they added a custom cabinetry shop as well. The cabinet shop has given Natalie and Kelly an advantage in the building industry, allowing them to offer a truly custom service.

CANADIAN HOME TRENDS – What advice would you give young women interested in entering trades?

NATALIE LAGACE – Don’t be scared off by a male dominated industry. I think it’s important to stay confident in your knowledge and true to your integrity.

CHT – If you could have lunch with any one person in the world, who would you pick?

NL – I would choose Bethany Frankel. She created her Skinny Girl brand from nothing and although she faced a lot of hard years, she stayed true to her brand and her vision. She has built the brand into something unimaginable. I would love to know what her turning point was from struggling to success. What kept her going before the brand was a success? What obstacles did she face?

CHT – What is your favorite room in your house?

NL – My favorite room in my house is my bathroom. It has a gorgeous freestanding tub surrounded by glass on all walls. It overlooks a heavily treed, private golf course. It feels like you are in a tree house. It is so relaxing and the perfect place to unwind after a long day on site!
