Peek Inside an Eclectic Home That Elegantly Blends Finishes

Tired of the dated look and feel of their Overland Park, Kansas, home, this couple hired designer Stephanie Stroud to help them add functional elements and create an eclectic style that felt current. For the kitchen, Stroud, who uses Houzz Pro business software to manage her projects, took the room down to the studs and moved walls to gain more space and storage. She then blended elegant white cabinets and a warm walnut island with marble and soapstone countertops, a marble slab backsplash and mixed metal finishes for a timeless, collected style. Elsewhere, dark, moody green walls in a music room and vibrant botanical wallpaper in a powder room add drama and personality.

I love the SW Jasper dark green music room. I assume the same color was used in what I think might be a home office, even on the ceilings and door. I have seen lots of pictures showing how amazing dark green is in rooms not blessed with natural light; it's nice to see that dark green also looks good in rooms that do have natural light. And it's reassuring to see how good it looks with frosty pastel furniture in the well-lit spaces. I've seen other pictures of dark green rooms with no light, and in those, bright accents like chartreuse or neon blue bring the look together.
I love the transformation of the space next to the kitchen from boring layered horizontal lines that made the space look unfinished to bold dramatic vertical lines. Simple things like creating that strong vertical fireplace, whiting out the adjacent choppy areas, and aligning the table with the fireplace doubled the apparent size of the room and made the space so much more calming. I love it when basic principles of art are utilized in interior design.
