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’s signature approach to interiors is a result of a multi-disciplinary background in art and design. Beginning with an early interest in fine art, she went on to apply those theories to the designed interior while studying Environmental Design at OCAD University. Her varied work experience includes residential and commercial interiors as well as experimenting in graphic and industrial design. 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.
