If you asked me what I thought of hanging instruments in a living room, I'd probably laugh. And now, surprisingly, I am 99% on board with the idea. Nate has a nice looking acoustic guitar and we have an empty space on a wall in our living room. I saw the room below featured on Escapade blog a while back and was drawn to the airy, neutral furnishings. It looks like a great place for friends to hang out, which is exactly what I want our home to be. I think having a beautiful musical instrument on display adds to the informality, encouraging people to feel comfortable, happy, and at home.
This is an old photo from last spring - notice the coffee table, chair, and one of the dining chairs still hadn't been painted. But this is one of the few photos I have that shows the formidable oversized technology in the living room. There is about two feet of space to the right of the TV, and that is where I am thinking of hanging the guitar.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Have any of you done this?
