Sappho Griffin's home in Bedford, Nova Scotia is a coastal retreat in the city.
She overhauled her kitchen to incorporate an upper level of cabinets, polished concrete counters, cork flooring and vintage-look taps. The island functions as additional workspace and adds a rustic touch to the space. The lantern is a fabulous find from Stadacona Lodge, a military hall in Halifax.
