Decorating With Instruments: 15 Beautiful Rooms with a Piano

As an apartment dweller, I've always envied those lucky ducks that have room for a piano. Spotting one in a home makes me think of carols at the holidays and after-school lessons — scales and Für Elise echoing throughout the house.  But just how does one decorate around such a bulky and attention-grabbing instrument?  These 15 great examples from our house tours show how to do it right.  

Some of these pianos blend into the color scheme, while others stand out as a focal point.  No doubt, they're all thoroughly enjoyed.
