We all love decorating our homes so they represent better out personal style, passions and needs. Music lovers can pride themselves on plenty of “en vogue” opportunities to decorate their homes in a charming and trendy fashion. Plus, if you’re a musician, this type of home décor is the perfect way to express your love for music and everything about it. If you want to really put on display your love for music, then follow the decorating tips below.
Start with your walls
You can use different techniques to decorate your walls and express your love for music. Start with a neutral colour on your walls. From ivory to taupe and beige, grey hues and white, sometimes even black if you use it as accents, everything makes a great choice for a music lover’s home. A great idea to use these colours and create a stunning wall art, use light hues of neutral colours and paint over them musical notes. Alternatively, you could use a dark red colour, if you’re on the bolder spectrum, and hang framed music records on the walls. Play with your walls, add music-inspired elements and you will end up integrating your love for music quite successful in the general design of your home.
If you lack the necessary talent that it takes to paint yourself the musical notes on walls, simply invest in musical-themed wallpaper and apply it over your walls. The technique is quite easy and it can be successfully tackled by a kindergarten student.
Find the right furniture
If you only want to hint your passion for music, modern, minimalist furniture will do the trick. However, you have to carefully decorate it with appropriate decorations and music-inspired elements.
If subtlety isn’t your cup of tea, be a tad more obvious with your passion and create decorative shelves for your walls from old guitars, or broken pianos. You will find plenty of online tutorials to get your inspiration from, so don’t hesitate to search for smart and witty wall shelving solutions.

Bring musical patterns into your interior textiles

If you can’t find similar elements, you can create a stencil and use it to decorate your curtains and pillows. It works like a charm and it will add extra class to your overall design.
Invest in the right decorations
