Principal Designer, Founder & Owner
Sappho launched Henhouse in 2001 as a retail storefront in the quaint Hydrostone Market area of Halifax, where she showcased her own furniture designs alongside curated vintage finds. As Henhouse grew to a treasured local source and one-stop shop for unique pieces, Sappho began creating built-ins and custom kitchens for clients. In 2013, she closed the chapter on her retail career and began Henhouse Interiors as a full-service design business, offering a complete vision from renovation plans to the final, finished product. Today, she works on mid- to full-sized home renovations, and new builds and decorating projects for the whole home.
With a background in Fine Art, and a lifelong love of colour, textiles, antiques, and natural materials, Sappho is known for creating thoughtful, classic, and layered spaces. Her fully integrated approach allows her to see the “big picture” and work closely with clients to make their dreams a reality.
