There are some rooms that strike a perfect chord between form and function. And then there are others that strike a perfect chord because they’re literally filled with musical instruments. From extensive record collections to walls lined with guitars, these well-designed music rooms sing with noteworthy style.
Whether you’re rocking out to Zeppelin on vinyl or repeatedly practicing “Stairway to Heaven,” you need a space that vibes with your rock and roll style. On the left, a large shelf stocks an extensive record collection while the room on the right feels like an elevated version of your high school band’s practice space — concrete floors and cowhide rug included.
Practically every space in Adam Levine’s Hollywood Hills home could be considered a music room. But the living room in particular features an array of instruments from guitars to drum sets, as well as a Mark Seliger portrait of two fellow musical legends, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
All That Jazz
A little jazz music never hurt anyone. These vintage-chic spaces transport us to a sultry jazz club in Paris where the piano sees a lot of action and the trumpet and percussion drums bang out melodious tunes you can’t help but get up and dance to.
Rock n’ Roll-Ready
Mounting your guitar on the wall makes it double as decor (and a place to hang hats, as exhibited on the right). With instruments in easy access, these spaces are always ready to rock.
It’s not often that guitars are meant to be seen and not heard, but in this case, we’ll make an exception. A row of black acoustics line a wall as decoration with a single electric black and white guitar to the right. This monochromatic set-up is a contemporary decor idea to rock any music lover’s home.
String instruments are a showstopper when displayed in modern-boho rooms like these. Bonus points if you hang them by size to create a cohesive presentation over the piano.
A shag piano bench adds a little funk to the minimal music setting on the left while on the right, a built-in alcove provides the perfect place for a keyboard corner.
In country star Kelsea Ballerini’s music room, her very first guitar hangs against a rustic, reclaimed wood wall accompanied by a banjo and electric guitar. The rest of the space contains her awards, albums and a collection of instruments she uses for recording.
