Grand Piano Living Room

Hey friends!  I am so excited to share this living room with you.  My client has a beautiful baby grand piano in her living room.  But that was it.  She asked me to decorate the piano room and to make better use of the space.  I was more than happy to help. :)

While they have a nice size living room the baby grand is sort of a space hog.  

Like hogging the whole entire room kind of space hog.  

I wanted to showcase the baby grand in the room but didn't want it to be the only thing in there, right in the middle of the room as you see below.

They needed some seating, somewhere to sit and listen to that beautiful piano because yes, they actually do play it. :)  

Time to move the piano.  

I had one chance to move it because you don't go moving baby grand pianos around all over the place... they are SUPER HEAVY.  It took 5 guys to move it about 3 feet.  They didn't have to go far but they had to turn it completely around.

Turning the piano and positioning it towards the corner allowed for seating in their lovely bay window that had been a completely empty and wasted space.

Now they have the perfect space to sit back, kick their feet up and enjoy the music.

I am in love with this color palette.  The light blue, beige and cream are so relaxing.  It also goes great with their paint color which they wanted to keep.

I pulled the colors from this fabulous rug.  It's the Catherine rug from Ballard Designs.

This arrangement makes much better use of the space in the room without taking away anything from the piano.

This cabinet across from the piano gives them storage for their music books.  The mirrored cabinet reflects light in a bit of a dark corner.

I hope you enjoyed this baby grand piano room tour.  It is one of my favorite client rooms I've done as of yet!

  1. Love the beautiful use of space! Your touches make it look so much more elegant and inviting!! This makes me even more excited to get a piano for our home.. I am looking forward to my kids enjoying some of the same fun musical memories that I had in my childhood, and creating their own. As always, thanks for the inspiration!!

  2. How beautiful! I love how you arranged the room and the sitting area is so pretty. I have a baby grand too in my living room and it is rather hard to get things just right! ;) But you got this just right!
    Be a sweetie,

  3. Very lovely and a great arrangement. We have a standard piano "antique" dated form the 50's..that itself is is in our sunroom and there it will remain. LOL.

  4. Looks great. We have a grand in our living room/great room. Luckily there was just the right spot to show case the beautiful piece. The room you did was difficult to get everything in a small space. Great job. Beautiful!

  5. Absolutely beautiful! Kudos to you - it now looks like an inviting wonderful place to sit and enjoy the music, the company and a cup of tea (or glass of wine)!

  6. Hi. Could you tell me the measurements of the room if possible. This room is lovely!
