A sun filled Living Room in New Jersey-Peter Rymwid Photography

This sun filled living room in western New Jersey became the showcase for a Somerset county estate. The miniature baby grande piano at the end of the room looked over views of the side yard. A lighter pallette of creamy whites and golden yellows was used in the silk covered chairs and the contemporary white sofa. Artwork was the selection used from the private collection of the owners.

Placement of piano by the bay window - I love the piano placement by the bay window and would like to do the same at home. My only concern is: would the constant sunlight from the bay window damage the piano? Can anyone tell me? Thanks.

We install window film in LOTS of piano rooms. As if the fading isn't bad enough, ask any piano tuner what the heat will do to your piano. The top is down on this picture during our install but opening towards the living space is the most common arrangement we see.

The bold silk plaid on the chairs was through Schumaher, purchased through my design firm. Schumacher works with design professionals and trade accounts only.
