California Duplex Home Design

We’re going in a smaller scale with today’s post and I am loving that! House prices continue to dramatically rise in many places of the country and many families are choosing to live in smaller homes, apartments and duplexes, like the one we will see today. I am happy to share this half duplex built by one of my favorite builders in California, Patterson Custom Homes (previously featured here), and with architecture by Brandon Architects.

Feel free to pin your favorite pictures and take notes on the inspiring color scheme this home offers, As always, I will be sharing all paint colors!

You can have a gorgeous kitchen even if you live in a smaller home or in a townhouse, apartment or duplex! All you need to do is design the space well.
