Henrietta Southam Design is a full-service design firm based in Ottawa, Canada. Admired for residential and hospitality design, Southam’s interdisciplinary design background works to create truly unique and approachable spaces. Whether it be a client’s kitchen, a hotel room or a new restaurant, Southam brings her curatorial flair to each project, articulating her client’s individuality in a design that is inimitably their own. HS Design functions as a collaborative team with our clients, architects, contractors, artists and designers to create environments that are both materially sensuous and distinctively bespoke.
Born into a family of artists and art patrons, Henrietta’s work is fuelled by the world around her. With career beginnings in the fashion industry in both New York and Miami, Henrietta is now recognized in the press as a prominent Canadian creative designer. She believes in the transformative power of well-designed spaces as a means to express the personal style, stories and tastes of her clients.
HS Design Services include:
architectural consulting, trade management, spatial planning, colour theory and paint selection, custom furniture finishes, hard and soft material selection, millwork design, sourcing unique finds and image consultancy.
Acknowledged in print and press for her bigger projects, Henrietta nonetheless strives to keep great design accessible to all by offering smaller scale “glam ups” at a fraction of a complete overhaul.
