All I've ever done to config QT apps on KDE4 is:

System Settings > Appearance > GTK Style and Fonts

Under GTK Style I always select Use another Style and from the dropdown 
select the same or similar style as my KDE theme.

Also under GTK Fonts I always select use my KDE fonts.

The window colours are identical to non GTK apps (at least they seem so 
to these old eyes).
