Placing a piano in a room can require as much expertise as playing it. The first masterpiece is the piano itself which is embedded in a culture steeped in centuries of tradition. It takes equal amounts of design skill and careful balance of every element to create the perfect setting with decorative finishes that present this magnificent instrument as a featured work of art.
The Design Process:
Interior designer Andie Anderson is gifted with passion for both music and design excellence. Her goal was to create harmony with design elements and custom treatments that would complement this grand piano. Despite the clean lines and sleek high gloss finish of the piano, she honored the centuries-old craftsmanship by surrounding it with artistic finishes that represent classic authenticity.
The cabinetry was adapted and refinished to include doors and crown moldings that reflect the timeless art of this instrument. In contrast, the boldness of the black piano is surrounded by faux-finished aged plaster walls reflecting its origins in history. The tradition of beautiful music will live on in this room.
