This is from an estate sale. This is a true antique, but still a reproduction of the Louis Xv style. This is recovered in a light blue mohair fabric. Thanks for asking!

I painted it white, yes! And it was an easy desicion to make. I would eventually maybe paint the beams a dark grey. :)

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Hi Andrea,i've got a piano which i still use a lot and many books in a small flat. i like what you've done here so i am considering having shelves around it like this. Do you find it difficult to get the books from the higher shelves above the piano?

Hi Andrea, how did you go about painting the piano? did you sand it first? and all the small area around the pedals and all, it must have been quite some work.. can you explain the process? do you have any tips ? thanks!

It's an antique Kurdish rug. They are getting more and more difficult to find. A trip Iran perhaps would do it! :). Good luck!

The carpet is a Persian rug. Also there are Pakistani and afghani carpets that have the same style. You can order it online . Just make a search on Internet . I found many on one of uk sites that send international

Hi. Thank you! This is 15' but if you have 10 it could work with a coffee ttable joining the furniture!

Not sure what you mean - '"coffee table joining furniture". Would this be an L-shape? I have open beam like this and find difficulty with ceiling lights. Usually the pictures cut off where the lights are installed. I think I see a track light here in the upper left. Nice color on the walls.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shoshana Gosselin added this to 8 Ways to Make Your Piano Room Sing
Use it to make a room look wider. If you have a narrow room, place the piano on the end wall to create a feeling of a wider room.You can also make the piano wall a space saver by incorporating a built-in around it. This is very handy for storing song books framing the piano so it stands out.
Amy Renea added this to Yes, You Have Room For a Piano
Here is another example of a piano that fits seamlessly into its surroundings. The white color plays off the sofa and painted ceiling, while the piano-size nook blends the instrument into the bookcases.
7 tips for going minimalist:1. Begin with the end in mind. Think about how you want your home to be. Browse through the ideabooks you’ve already created and look for themes. Only after you’re clear what you’re shooting for should you begin to purge.2. Prepare to feel worse before you feel better. I’m sorry, but it’s true, as my then 3-year-old said, when she informed me she always loved me but didn’t always like me. When you get rid of things, you’ll focus on what you paid or that you still really, really love an item. You may feel shame about the money you’ve wasted, but holding onto stuff you don’t want or need is not the answer.3. Forgive yourself. When the feelings of shame surface, take a moment to say, “I forgive myself” and then keep going. These feelings will dissipate as you build momentum.4. Get help. Do you have a friend who loves to organize? Arrange a barter. My friend Jane owns a bed-and-breakfast, and I traded helping her there in exchange for her assistance with my purge. My husband, Paul, took over on hauling things away.5. Give or throw things away. One stall of my garage was for Goodwill, and the other was trash. I have sold a lot on Craigslist, but when I was doing my hardcore decluttering, I wanted to get rid of things as quickly as possible. In a way it was spiritual: I’ve gotten so many deals over the years on Craigslist and at thrift stores, it was a way to resow something I had reaped.6. Break it down. Plan to give yourself weeks, even months to go through your home. I recommend going room by room; this keeps the mess contained and the project more manageable. Take a day or two to do a room and then take some time off. Once you declutter a space, you can see if you’re able to maintain it or if you need to get rid of more.7. Ask yourself what you would grab in a fire. In an actual fire, you should think of saving only people and animals, but asking yourself this in the abstract can be a helpful exercise in pointing you to what really matters. Bonus tip: Don’t speak glibly about this to people who have actually survived a fire, or you may be throttled.The 3 stages of decluttering, simplified:Sort things into “keep” “give” and “trash” piles.Put away what you keep.Haul the rest away.Like many things in life, "simple" doesn’t necessarily mean "easy," but breaking the process down into these categories can help you stay focused.A few weeks after we moved into our new house, the fire alarms went off, again in the wee hours. My laptop was next to my bed, but I walked right past it to gather my children and the dog and head straight for the door while Paul investigated. He quickly realized it was a false alarm. Only later did I notice I went right into evacuation mode and didn't think of a thing.Next: 4 Obstacles to Decluttering and How to Beat Them
"I'm sorry," you may be thinking, "but that's not how it will be for me, because I'm insured for a zillion dollars."We too had great coverage and ended up with a very good settlement — ours is actually a success story. And here's the thing: Take a look at your policy. Right before the dollar amount of your coverage, there are two very important words: "up to." As in "up to a zillion dollars." The difference between that and an actual zillion dollars is profound. (See Ironman and 2-by-4 thwackings above.)How an Inventory Can Help YouI hope anyone reading this never has to face a house fire, but statistically speaking some of you will, and I'd love to make a terrible experience a little easier. Here's the secret: Before your house burns down, you need to make an inventory. That is, you need to make a list of every single item in your home. Bonus secret: After your house burns down — and I hope it never does — hire a a public adjuster. (See good-settlement success story above.)
