Is it possible to see the other half of this room? - I love the simplicity of the furniture placement in this room, am curious what the remainder of it looks like - do you have a photo that depicts the rest? My new living room looks to be similar dimensions and I have an almost identical piano and chair set. Thanks in advance.

Thank you! This is a perfect layout (and such a gorgeous room) and will suit our house very well - I've got 19' front to back (by 15'), and hoping to have a pair of sofa's at the opposite end from where the piano is (one will be where you have your chairs) and perhaps a couple of occasional chairs on either side of the fireplace.

Position of piano - I've seen grand pianos turned several different ways - usually with keys in the corner or keys facing the main room. How do you determine the positioning of the piano?

Yes, there are rules. The piano lid when open directs the sound into the room (i.e., audience). The piano should sit with keys on the left, performer's right shoulder is closest to the audience. We have Franz Liszt to thank for the sideways perspective. His profile was what he wanted people to see! :-D And don't put potted plants on the piano, it will ruin the finish with every watering.

Did you seal the floor with anything after painting?

Yes. You need at least 3 coats of an industrial strength poly-acrylic, not polyurethane (it will yellow over time).

The charcoal color is only in this dining and music room. The majority of the house has other colors such as a light grey, pale yellow, and pale blue.

Mirrors should only be used as a centre piece of a room. Also be careful where you place them to if you are familiar with feng shui.

It is a gesso that is thinned out with water and then a polyacrylic sealer.

I own this rug or one so near I can't see the difference. It is a wonderful warm blue. I found mine at a prominent rug company in San Francisco. I'll see if I can locate more information and repost.

Janie, just came upon your room. It is beyond beautiful. Your design gave me confidence to move ahead with an oriental, Kerman, 1960's neutral, blue, pink, cream. I have chosen BM Sea Star…dark, and I love it even more now that I see you have paired dark walls with a lighter rug.

May I ask, did you line the linen?

I always line and interline my drapes, but this is a sheer fabric and I wanted it to remain sheer, so there is no lining on these.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Your Décor: Orange You Glad?
I think this room is so elegant with its charcoal-tinged walls and curtains. When paired with a dramatic and dark neutral like charcoal, this coral orange is playful and sophisticated. The look works because it is not a contrived palette; it is bold and brave while maintaining the stately feel of the furniture and piano.
Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist added this to Mood Makers: Make Your Home Inspiring
This space is inspiring for a variety of reasons. The bold choice of wall color, unexpected flooring finish, beautiful baby grand piano and impressive art all arouse the imagination.
We should cover the more affluent homes too, where the drawing room was bigger and probably not the only reception room. This size gives you more scope to have a family room with comfy sofas, a TV and books while keeping the traditional use of the drawing room as a more formal adult space too.
