Sarah Keenleyside

Designer Sarah Keenleyside joined HGTV Canada as co-host of Backyard Builds and as part of the all-star cast in Family Home Overhaul and Home To Win. Formally the Principal Designer and co-owner of Qanūk Interiors Inc., Sarah Keenleyside has become recognized for creating unique and creative environments tailored to the individuality of her clients.

Sarah has lived and travelled extensively abroad which has influenced her eclectic sensibility and fueled her desire to design in a style that is uniquely Canadian.
