Flowers in The Music Nook

We have a small corner in our home that houses our piano.   I call it the music nook.  One day, I hope to hang our guitars and banjo above the piano so it will really be the music nook….and not just the piano corner.



But until then, I have my favorite painting hanging above the piano.  This painting was given to us by a close family friend.  There is quite a story about how this friend obtained the painting, and there is an uncanny resemblance to us in the painting, so needless to say…I pretty much love it.

Just a  few days ago, I added a fresh arrangement to the Music Nook.  I used more yellows in the floral arrangement to pick up the golds in the painting.  When I’m selecting flowers for the house, I keep the painting’s color palette in my mind.  So sometimes I get it get it very right…sometimes not.  I think I did a pretty good match on this one, except if those lilies were deep orange rather than bright yellow I may have gotten a perfect match.

So don’t forget to adorn the music area of your home, because a creative space needs some creative fuel.
