2. Modern FarmhouseDesigner: Kal Macdonald of Trickle Creek Designer HomesLocation: Calgary, AlbertaSize: 33 square feet (3.1 square meters); 5½ by 6 feet Special features: Shiplap walls. Custom furniture-style vanity. Rustic reclaimed mirror. Gold-finish sconces. Hardwood floor. Designer secret: “Start with a big piece you love and build from there,” says designer Kal Macdonald. “This powder room started with the rustic mirror we found at an antiques store and was our inspiration when selecting the rest of this room’s pieces.” “Uh-oh” moment: “Mixing different-colored woods,” Macdonald says. “This can be a scary idea to homeowners, as it’s hard to envision how it will actually look once it’s all together. If you are going to mix woods, keep to neutral undertones and make sure they are vastly different. If you go too close in color, you risk it looking like it’s supposed to match but one item is an odd color. Go bold or not at all.” Mirror: Uniquities; sconces: Kichler via Cartwright Lighting; faucet and sink: Rubi by Soligo, via Icon Stone + Tile; custom vanity: Ateliers Jacob; Quiet Hideaway paint on walls: DuluxSee more of this farmhouse
