There are a lot of surprises in this Hazel and Brown-designed Vancouver ensuite, to be sure. There’s the giant, backlit pink quartzite panel that overlooks the white bathtub; the Arabesque Carrara marble floor tiles that nod to the homeowners’ travels to Morocco; the playful wallpaper that lines the water closet. But designer Melanie Finkleman’s big reveal is those rectangular mirrors on the wall—they’re actually the fronts of custom medicine cabinets. “They’re recessed into the wall,” she explains. “But the wood frames really make them look like mirrors.”

Golden Glow

Mixed metals bring a comfortable warmth here. Accessories are brass, while faucets are oil-brushed bronze. The whole home has a farmhouse-modern vibe, and that’s continued into the bathroom with shiplap on the walls and an industrial black grid frame on the shower door.

Ripple Effect

The fluted, white oak vanity brings the texture here. A cerused oak stain adds further depth. “It’s my favourite part of the room,” says Finkleman.
