Gorgeous Rooms With Pianos {Revisited}

rooms-that-sing
So I have a confession to make.  As much as I like to think of myself as the “good head on my shoulders and makes practical decisions” type of gal, I am a hopeless romantic.  To the extreme.  Apart from cheesy romantic movies and literature,  I  drift off into a hopelessly romantic  world with music.  The piano has been a large part of who I am for the last 27 years  and my favorite music by far is from the Romantic Period.  I am so lucky to personally experience many beautiful compositions and make them my own.  It’s funny that I married my complete opposite but he does keep me well-balanced. 😉

Gorgeous Rooms With Pianos

“I try to decorate my imagination as much as I can.” -Claude Debussy
Both of my children play. My daughter was two when I discovered her playing in her tutu and little green slippers. (I started teaching her at the age of four.)   Both my mother and Aunt played, it runs in our family.
My twin sister and I have performed many times together.  She is a fantastic organist and pianist in Fort Worth.    Both of us have completed Masters in Music and have been performing, accompanying, and teaching since we were 14 years old.  Music as always been a HUGE part of our lives.

But you don’t have to know how to play to enjoy a piano in your home.  The instrument instantly adds a charm and classical elegance to any space.

Let’s meet 10 gorgeous pianos in equally gorgeous spaces.

This old upright piano was painted with chalk paint by Kate from Centsational Girl and looks gorgeous!

I love how the walnut finish from this piano adds to the refined rustic feeling of this room.

Here is another white piano, (this seem to be a little more common than I thought.) If you can put Liberace out of your mind it works nicely in this space. 🙂

This picture is so pretty.  I could spend hours playing the piano or listening to someone else play while I read a book on that window seat.  Notice the layered rugs.  It can be done my friends!!

Let’s not forget uprights and older pianos, they are just as beautiful.
A lovely, modern space with plenty of room for recitals.
One last white piano tucked in a corner with neutral decor.  Soft and elegant.

 I have to include one other blogger, I just love the stripes and gold frames Emily added to her piano wall.
Here is where I spend quite a bit of time with all of my favorite guys.  (There aren’t many classical, female composers 😉 )

I hope these images have given you ideas for furniture placement or maybe a desire for an addition to your home. =)
Are you a hopeless romantic?  What touches your heart?

    1. Thanks Aimee! Toys usually don’t make it into that room so that helps but you should see upstairs where the kids’ rooms are…. Yikes. lol Baskets and drawers everywhere help too!

  1. My grandparents had a beautiful piano that they placed in the center of their sitting room. When I was little, I always thought that was an odd spot for it but once I was older, I loved walking in and having the room centered around this beautiful piece of music.

    1. I love it! My parents had the piano in the center of the front room when we were growing up too. Such a pretty instrument deserves to be “front and center”. 😉

    1. That’s wonderful Dawn!! I love hearing my children “tinkering” on the piano and my husband has picked up the guitar in the last few years. I can’t imagine life without having these blessings.

    1. Wow! That’s the best compliment!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Can’t say the rest of the house stays that clean. (Shhh, that will be our little secret.)

  2. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I love to watch your blog for ideas.
    I’m so glad I’ve had the opportunity to hear you play duets with your
    sister and you playing by yourself. God has blessed you with the gift
    of music. PLAY ON!!!

    1. Thanks for the sweet words Aunt Sally. Do you remember when I played for your class in KS? I love teaching young kids. I’ve started teaching 4 and 5 year olds along with my older students.
