If you remember my mom’s Beaumont Dream Home tour, you’ll remember seeing a gorgeous piano in the bonus room. This particular piano has been in my family for a very long time! We’re not too sure (I’d have to do some more digging) just when it was purchased, more than likely by my great grandmother, but we did manage to find a date on it that said 1896. Whether the date is accurate to my family’s acquiring of the piano remains a mystery, but, nonetheless, it is old!!
It was handed down to my Nana, lived with my aunt for a time and has been patiently waiting for me to find a home that could fit it. Well, we are finally in that home and I am crazy excited to be inheriting it in the very near future. Now, Ryan has some reservations surrounding an ancient piano that neither of us can play. Plus, it’s about as heavy as an elephant, so I get it! But, it means a lot to me to keep this piano in our family, especially in a day and age when family heirlooms seem to be fewer and farther between.
I also LOVE what a piano can do to a space. It can become a major focal point or even a piece of furniture in its own right. The wood grain of a piano can really add gorgeous texture and warmth to a living room or dining nook. And, let’s not forget, that a piano can be styled with gorgeous paintings, books or plants. The options are so much fun! So, before I acquire my lovely passed down piano, I wanted to look at some piano decor to inspire my future design choices. Which is your favourite?!
