Featuring: Cameron MacNeil

See how H&H senior design editor Cameron MacNeil transformed an outdated bathroom and bedroom into a luxurious escape. Learn how he chanelled an East Coast style in the bathroom with a Carrara marble vanity, basketweave pattern floor, and DIY panelled wall treatment. In the bedroom, he swapped dated carpet for recycled leather flooring, a bulky pine sleigh bed for a contemporary upholstered headboard, and added an electric fireplace for warmth and character.
