Make It: Turn sheet music into pinecone ornaments by first cutting the sheets into two-inch strips with a paper trimmer. Then, use craft scissors to cut each strip into several two-by-one-half-inch pinecone scales. Next, hot-glue the scales onto two-inch foam crafting spheres, allowing the bottom edges of the scales to extend one-half inch lower than each sphere. Continue to layer the scales, one row at a time, curling the edge of each slightly upward. Once the final row of scales has been adhered to the top, add a small dollop of glue to the tip of each scale, then dust lightly with glitter. Hot-glue a knotted loop of ribbon to the top, then hang on the tree.
An oversized piece of abstract art adds bold color to this bright white living space. A baby grand takes center stage with a contemporary light fixture above, while a comfortable armchair and ottoman provide a relaxing spot to enjoy the music.
The classically designed living space in this Asheville hilltop mansion is the perfect gathering place to enjoy a cocktail and listen to music. The room has a neutral tone, accented with hardwood flooring and crown molding, and a large fireplace with wooden mantel and tufted, green furniture for guests.
This former garage was converted into a dedicated music and studio space. New drywall, baseboards and trim were added as well more masculine touches including dark hardwood floors, industrial shelving, leather and wood chairs and an oversized ceiling fan, as seen on Fixer Upper.
In the basement, a sound proofed music studio was added for the family's budding musician. Sound proof panels were already in place, so designers revamped the area with a bright couch, new carpet, and profession style cabinets to make the space complete.
A scarcely used formal dining room morphed into a favorite spot, complete with a grand piano inherited from Cristina’s family and James’ guitar collection (formerly housed under the guest bed). “I’ll play ‘Tweeter and the Monkey Man’ by The Traveling Wilburys and Fiona ‘plays’ along,” says James. Fun touches: a blue velvet tufted sofa by CR Laine and a bright kilim rug from Chairish.
Warm hardwood floors are paired with cool gray walls for this contemporary rec room. The long space uses furniture to create defined areas: a media section, music room and stainless steel table for playing games or working. Black-and-white photography creates a beautiful gallery on the wall.
