Sarah has assembled a hardworking and creative design team that specializes in modern transitional interior design for houses and condos across the Greater Toronto Area, Southern Ontario, Canada & the USA. For us at Sarah St.Amand Interior Design, design is about intertwining functionality and beauty. Our studio is located in Brantford, Ontario where our team shares a passion for design and refined detail, and collaborates to create luxurious interiors with practical space-planning.
It's important to our team that we create livable luxury, a space that feels upscale and elevated but is also somewhere you can thrive and feel comfortable. With a love of art and textiles, we are inspired by the everyday flow of life. Whether it be a sun-filled condo or a quiet cottage tucked away on a lake, our design choices are grounded in what our client shares with us. We want to reflect your personal style and make a space that feels good and functions to suit your lifestyle.

PRINCIPAL LEAD DESIGNER
It’s been 25 years since I started in the interior design business and it’s hard to pinpoint what I love most about what I do. Spending my days creating stunning spaces is such a pleasure—working with colour, texture, furniture and all the elements of design has always been my passion. Oh, and I’m a big lover of art, too.
I had a couple of exciting gigs back in the early days of my career before SSID—I was a design expert with Benjamin Moore & Co. and Cityline. But the more time I spent designing spaces, the more I enjoyed working with clients. That’s why I decided to take a leap of faith and open my own firm 17 years ago. Since then, I’ve worked with hundreds of homeowners and have had a ball helping clients turn their dreams for their homes into a reality.
These days, I oversee the design process for our clients and create beautiful, refined spaces where they can feel comfortable and relaxed. I still get a kick out of seeing homeowners’ faces when they get a glimpse of their new kitchen, study, den or bedroom. When I’m not poring over design plans and working with my amazing team (meet them below!), I’m hanging out with my kids and my dog. I like to shop, exercise, dine at delicious restaurants, cook, go on road trips, travel and sip wine while reading fashion magazines. Fashion, art and interior design are closely linked, and it’s fun to keep up with what’s in style and trending.
And did I mention I’m someone who needs my morning cup of Joe? I love a good mocha latte.
Through years of experience, we are able to expertly curate aesthetics and functional purpose to create livable luxury. Our process creatively evolves from a colour, a beautiful textile or a creative brainstorm into a beautifully refined interior custom-made for you.

After receiving my bachelors degree in General Business, I went back to school and completed a two-year degree in Interior Design in St. Louis, Missouri. I’ve worked at several commercial and residential interior design firms in the US and Canada and love being able to get to know clients and transform their spaces to best suit their lives and families. At SSID I am happy to help wherever it’s needed, from drawings to project management and everything in between.
In my free time, you’ll find me cooking, golfing, travelling or hanging out with my daughter, two dogs and husband.
STUDIO MANAGER & DESIGN ASSOCIATE
Before joining SSID, I got my Interior Decorating Diploma from Conestoga College. I wear many hats at SSID: I assist the principal designer during site visits, I help with all things organization, I keep an eye on order tracking, and anything else that is needed to help with the development of designs. I very much enjoy helping everyone stay on track, being a part of the process, and working with a great team of people.
In my free time, I like to go on outdoor adventures, or out on the lake boating with friends, and I enjoy spending time with my family (especially my niece!).
I am deeply passionate about supporting small business owners in the creative field. When I’m not working or hanging out with my six-year-old, I love to sit down with a good book.
