Decor <> music


Here’s the premise: your furniture has to match the music you play in that room. If you doubt your ability to make a good match, you can hire a personal music stylist create a playlist that does it for you….

This was my Grandmother’s sofa (but not her living room). She stretched out on it every afternoon after lunch and read Agatha Christie novels and the like, often with a blanket over her knees.

Her music choices (as I recall): classical, including lots of operas.

Now, our furniture/music. I can’t say whether they match or not. Probably not so much—heavily 70s music, but not entirely, and early 20th-C style furniture in the fancier living room, and undistinguished late 20th-C style well-used stuff in the family room….

    So, your music: eclectic and a bit ragtag, too? How ’bout recycled aspects?

    Yeah, there seemed to be something on NPR a bit ago about recycled music. I didn’t catch it very well because I was multi-tasking: laundry, groceries, cooking ahead…
