A project awaited Ben and Kimberly Aschenbrenner when they bought their Greek revival home around three years ago.
“We kept saying, ‘it’s a blank slate,” Kimberly said about the 1860s home that originally housed a doctor’s office.
The couple bought the home during a renovation but have since made it their own. They’ve ripped out the kitchen for a more contemporary look and painted and decorated its two stories with everything from thrifty and online finds to Kimberly’s own artwork, bringing cohesion to their eclectic style.

MIX AND MATCH
The pairings in this home include a Zebra print sofa across from a blue velvet one in the parlor, as well as a glass ribbon lucite chandelier in the foyer found on eBay and wooden bookshelves in the library that belonged to Ben’s dad.
Wallpaper with a black background and floral print covers the walls of the formal dining room that combines plush pink velvet chairs with a glass-topped table for a touch of elegance.
In the family room, a jungle-themed mural found on Etsy pairs with an animal print rug Kimberly bought off Craigslist, plus a leather sofa, a wooden love seat and a velvet yellow chair.
