Get a Music-Themed Furniture Piece
Keeping pace with the latest trends and pretty high demand for music-themed pieces, many furniture designers and manufacturers create entire collections dedicated to guitars, pianos, drums, or works of famous composers.
While the vastness of internet shops hides a plethora of items, from beds and sofas to coffee tables and cupboards, it makes perfect sense to start with something that can be an addition to your existing furniture.
Quite naturally, the first piece to cross the mind when speaking of accessories is a bookshelf. The reason is obvious, it can not only make the space more beautiful but also serve the lofty purpose of showcasing your awesome bookshelf stereo system, plus other dear-to-your-heart stuff.
Just a heads up, when shopping for such a sought-after item, make sure your system can fit on it comfortably. We bet, there will also be plenty of space for your favorite CDs and vinyl, or who knows maybe even for your medals.
Add Music to Your Walls
Why not start with walls? The options are limitless, from painting one of them in beige, ivory, cream, or a similar hue and then adding black musical notes to buying a musical-themed wallpaper to contrast the rest of the room.
If you like your walls plain and free from too vibrant colors, consider getting one of those beautiful abstract art canvases.
Inspired by various musical instruments, bands, and even orchestras, they come in different sizes and you won’t have any problem choosing the one to complement your living room, hall, or any other space in the house.
Adorn Your Library
Don’t skip the opportunity to adorn your library with uniquely crafted bookends that come in the beautiful shape of the treble clef or your favorite musical instrument. The offering of music-themed bookends is really rich and diverse, therefore there is no need to lower your sights in terms of both material and design.
Make the Floor Vivid
Floors are another great place to show off your creativity and taste in music. With a host of products available out there, you will easily find floor tiles or a rug to ignite the atmosphere in your house. If you are not plotting to replace the existing tiles with new ones, you can go the other way and just buy special prints to avoid any hassle.
By the way, there are waterproof stickers that can do a great job in the bathroom or kitchen, some of them are specially designed to prevent falls on a wet and slippery surface.
When it comes to rugs, you will be spoiled for choice. However, keep in mind that moderation is key. Too bright and aggressive colors may look great in the picture but once on your floor, they might just drive you crazy. Also, do not overdo it with décor, if your living room already features bigger wall art, the same-styled rug or curtains are too much.
Dress Up Your Windows
If you prefer to leave your walls untouched but still want to add some musical twists to your room, dress windows in white-and-black piano curtains. If this solution is too bold to your taste or just doesn’t get along with the style of your home, try scattering aluminum notes across the fabric or placing a guitar print on top of the curtain rod.
Have Sweet Dreams
If you still haven’t bought music-themed bedding or at least, some sweet decorative pillows to throw on a sofa, then it’s the right time to do it. Luckily for you, the market has no shortage of both bedding and pillows, and the best thing is, they are far from being spicy-pricey!
Light Up Your Life
When decorating your home to suit your taste and preferences, do not forget that lighting can express your love for music as well. Again, you will run into a decent selection of lamps, lampshades, and even chandeliers adorned with elegant notes, charming treble clefs, or mesmerizing silhouettes of classic instruments.
Show Your Passion
Finally, if you play a musical instrument that can be hung on the wall, do so. That is a great way to show your passion in the most organic way. If you don’t like the idea of keeping your precious guitar or violin out of the case, you can go with the old instruments you do not use anymore. For an exquisite vintage look, get a gramophone and find it a place in your living room.
Whatever your taste in music, today, you have a myriad of opportunities to decorate your home in accordance with your preferences. Unleash your inner designer and use these eight interesting ideas as a starting point for the creation of a once-of-its-kind interior no one else has.
