Scott McGillivray Transforms a Kawartha Cottage Into a Zen’d Out Retreat

Caroline and Gihad wanted a cottage where they could unwind and relax after a long week performing their busy jobs. They also wanted to be able to rent their space out during those weeks when work keeps them away. But after trying to renovate two bathrooms by themselves, this couple knew they needed help. So they called up Scott McGillivray, designer Debra Salmoni and the Vacation House Rules team. See how Scott and co. took this Kawartha Lakes property from the 1970s and transformed it into a midcentury modern, zen’d out retreat with plenty of beautiful (and memorable!) finishes.

Watch Scott’s Vacation House Rules on HGTV Canada and on the Global TV App and on STACKTV with Amazon Prime Video Channels and Rogers.
