Kansas City Home Decor Ideas, By Neighborhood

We partnered with the local furniture artists and craftsmen at Walter Carmichael & Co. to spark some creative home ideas this fall. Since each Kansas City neighborhood has its own unique style and personality, we spent a little time in each area to find inspiration, just like Walter Carmichael has done with its own furniture collections.


The Crossroads Arts District has helped give Kansas City street/country cred as a major point of culture in the Midwest. These home accents are a nod to the creative craftsmanship in the area.

The Crossroads Coffee Table


This modern-but-also-Craftsman style table is a nice nod to the industrial past of Crossroads. Exposed steel complements the custom-finished oak to bring a striking centerpiece that will still hold your coffee table book about coffee tables.

Hammerpress PRINT


The distinct Hammerpress relief print technique is a Crossroads decor staple and will make a stylish impression in any KC neighborhood, from prints to patches.

Kansas City's oldest neighborhood has been around longer than Kansas City itself. The frontier waystation has transformed into a trendy spot for young professionals, families, eating, drinking, and truly unique KC points of pride.

Westport Lounge Chair


Westport is home to a thriving "porch culture," thanks to the prominent porches featured on the houses built around the turn of the 20th Century. Class up your porch hang night with Walter Carmichael's Westport Lounge Chair. Just make sure you don't get pipe ash on it!

Vinyl Records


Westport might have a "hipster" label slapped on it, but hey, if the shoe fits. Embrace the label and pick up some new or used vinyl at neighborhood staple Mills Record Company. A veritable warehouse of music, turntables, shirts, beer glasses, and more, Mills will probably have what you're looking for.

Kansas City's coffee scene is exploding. Oddly Correct is on the forefront of that scene, so bring some coffee home. Bonus: each bag of beans features hand-letterpressed art that you might not want to get rid of, so pick up a laser-cut bag frame in store only.

The nation's first "outdoor mall" opened in 1923 and has been home to one of Kansas City's best shopping experiences since. The neighborhood now encompasses a much larger area, but the Plaza's old-fashioned class still remains.

Kansas City Clock


Niall is one of Kansas City's premiere brands. They make truly first-rate watches. But you might not want to carry a piece of art around on your wrist all the time. So why not get a clock that mimics their distinctive style?
