I changed up our music room a while back
and don't believe I ever shared.
Here (below 2 pics) is the way I had it before, for a long while.
It wasn't bad, but it wasn't GOOD.
The high wall needed some visual height decor desperately.
While I had been watching and shopping and looking for
a large horizontal art piece or mirror to go in that blank area
I went with the above idea and went with it.
At one time we were considering adding a new set of windows
there but it gets full mid-day sun... NOT so good for a piano!
After the little changes I am enjoying how the room looks.
(Especially with the live kitty decor, right?)
Romeo sits under my 1959 seven-foot Baldwin Grand when I play.
think know he's my biggest fan!
I know that rug is too small under there but it costs $200
every time I move it - takes 4 grown men to move it even
an inch - it's solid wood and SO HEAVY.....
so I haven't replaced the rug yet with a larger one.
I intend to, it's on the list, but far down on the list.
Now that I really look at that rug it should be in our home office.
This may now actually get bumped up higher on the list, haha.
I added a little French vintage alabaster brass lamp
to the top - creates nice ambient lighting.
Aren't the sweet cherubs so cute?
I recently acquired these two artisan hand tooled & painted
leather and wood rose prints.
They help with the needed height
and are absolutely gorgeous.
These are a pretty golden brown, not pink like the one below,
not sure what happened to make it look pink like that?
Having the baker's rack here (moved from kitchen last summer)
helps with filling in the empty visual space, and is also quite utilitarian.
It's the perfect size/piece when entertaining -
using it for various drink stations depending on need:
spirits, wine, coffee, tea, water, etc.
Hrm, odd. The metal vase I had on the bottom glass shelf
to the right side isn't there in these pictures. Grrr.
Well.... I kinda do know why it isn't there.....
I went to change things up when I started taking these pictures.
(BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT WE BLOGGERS DO!)
But then Mr. Romeo Kitty came in to see what I was doing,
being all cute and lovable as he is......
And then I certainly had to take a "pet-me-please, now" break.
And of course that lasted a bit longer than intended,
though HE wouldn't agree with me on that.....
Then I started getting quite peckish, as it was past tea time....
So after the kitty visit, tea and scones,
and because I am very forgetful,
I simply picked up my camera and went back to snappin'.
So please use your best imaginations that my vase is where it should be
on that baker's rack...
you DO see a cool metal vase there, right!!??
Here is a pic of it I took recently, so you can imagine thusly.
Yes, I really loved my vintage wooden tea cart
but that space needed a change!
SOMETIMES WE MUST LOSE TO GAIN.
It wasn't easy letting it go,
but was the right decision design-wise.
So there you have it- slight changes in our music room.
As always, thank you for your visit!
