Paulette Facca, CID Owner
Senior Interior Designer/ Project Manager
Since starting Creative Touch Interiors in 2007, my vision has always been to renovate homes. Growing up, renovations were a way of life for my family, as my father loved to fix and create environments to bring our family joy and a feeling of connectedness in our shared spaces. Family values are inherent to what I bring to work for our clients. It’s about more than adding beauty to a space. It’s about being there every step of the way to ensure the vision comes to life. It’s important to me to extend these values to the community I engage, so when I started my own business, I prioritized relationships with local tradespeople whose work I admired. I listened carefully to the trades, and to my clients, to bridge the gap between vision and execution. Meanwhile, I was establishing a new life for my son and I in Kelowna. Moving from Ontario (where I was born), and then becoming a single mother, wasn’t easy. I had to work hard to build a life for us. Fortunately, I found dragon boating, my second family. It’s what helps keep me going besides my son. I live by certain values, as we all do, but if there’s one thing that I say to my son, it is to be kind. Our values are what leads us through our lives. I am proud of who I am: an entrepreneur, whose Indigenous background has inherently provided me with the gift of skills in leadership and creativity. If there is anything that I would say to others, it would be to follow your dreams and be true to yourself. Persevere and find your supports. We are all in this together.
