Liberating your domesticated musician from the garage

As I mentioned in the welcome post, all of this started with the guitar stand in the living room.   Why the aversion to a guitar stand in the living room?  The guitar stand probably looks like this:

or like this

While these guitar stands are perfectly functional and their ability to fold flat makes them excellent for playing out gigs, they are hardly worthy of your living room aesthetic.

Many domesticated musicians have had their passion banished to the garage, the back of the closet, or under the bed.  No need to banish them when there are choices like:

A sleek modern wall hanger:
D&A Grip White & Chrome with LIFETIME WARRANTY

 

Your roadie lending a hand guitar grip: 
Black Pearl Custom Guitar Hanger Right Hand Model

 

A sophisticated wall display case (lockable): 

Guitar Fender Display Case w/ UV Protection- Lockable
Or a wall display for multiple guitars: 
Guitar Hanger 48″ long

 

It’s time for your domesticated musician to join the rest of the household as a full fledged member.  Instead of that folding guitar stand your rockstar uses for playing out, here are some guitar grips, guitar stands, and other displays worthy of the beloved guitar.

Why a rock star/ music themed room?

As I mentioned in my welcome post, for me it all started with the guitar stand in the living room.  I said that initially I thought the guitar stand was not appropriate living room decor.

What’s wrong with a guitar stand in the living room?

Along my journey of accepting then embracing the guitar stand in the living room I realized that guitars are very sculptural and come in a wide variety of beautiful finishes.  This is also true for many other musical instruments – electric guitars, pianos, and drums come to mind but there are countless others.

For someone that plays music it is so obvious to add a personally meaningful, beautiful, sculptural piece (instrument) to your rooms.  I will go so far as to say if you enjoy music but don’t play you can still incorporate a music theme in your rooms. Not everyone is going to be with me on that one, but hear me out.  How many fish or seashell themed bathrooms have you seen in homes of people that don’t own an aquarium?  I posit that it makes more sense for a music lover to have a music themed room than a fish themed bathroom.

So join me on my quest to incorporate beautiful, sculptural music themed pieces into our daily living.  It’s going to be fun!
