This custom 2,500-square-foot duplex in the Central Lonsdale neighbourhood of North Vancouver was built for a family with two young boys. Inspired by a Scandinavian aesthetic, the design features soft neutrals, black accents, and natural textures; a refined minimalist look that comes to life in the details.
The exterior of the home is wrapped in a soft grey shingle, accented by black windows and a charcoal entry door. The interior plays with tones of grey, whites and blacks, grounded by white oak hardwood. Modern, playful light fixtures throughout create visual interest in key spaces throughout.
Graphic tile grounds the bathroom spaces and creates striking visual interest. Graphic wallpaper in the kid’s bedroom and softer wallpaper in the powder room and nursery act as an elevated backdrop in each room. The duplex is a modern, laid back and simplistic family home with striking details.
