The annual Parade of Homes is an ideal opportunity to see what’s new in Kansas City’s hottest residential communities. And while you’re likely initially drawn to homes because of their exterior architecture, don’t forget to look inside, too — you might just be surprised at what you find.
Brian Rodrock of Rodrock Homes said bright colors are becoming a more integral part of Rodrock Homes’ interiors. “We’ve evolved form the beige that we’ve seen in the last 10 to 15 years,” he said. “We’re incorporating more dynamic colors.
If you pick up a homes magazine, you see so many more eye-popping colors, and that’s what we’re trying to do.” Stop by Rodrock Homes’ model homes in Wyngate at 16301 Grant St., Overland Park, or Summerwood at 159th and Rose Hill, Overland Park, to experience these vibrant interiors firsthand. Rodrock Homes has teamed up with Twigs Interiors to introduce new, exciting interior styles that extend beyond the builder’s model homes.
“That’s what we offer — a relationship with Twigs,” Rodrock said. “Buyers aren’t just going to see a model home designed by a wonderful designer and be left on their own to try and replicate the look.
Each homeowner gets to meet with the Twigs team of designers to get the same feel and look in their respective budget. It’s part of our full-service approach that Rodrock offers to help people achieve their dreams.”
Lisa Mermis, owner of Twigs Interiors, said the response to the new interiors has been “phenomenal.” “I think a lot of it has to do with something as simple as color,” she said. “And it’s tied into the economy, too.
For several years, we’ve all been scared about our jobs, wages and homes. Now that people are feeling better, they want to do something different and push the envelope.” Added Rodrock, “The trend is to celebrate that we’ve made it, and we’re able to do something in our homes besides beige. We can show more, be more creative and be more colorful.”
