A combination of outdoor ambiance (think symphonies on a mountainside or aboard the lido deck) with the laid back comfort of an exclusive, old world club, this room would be as happy hosting Diana Krall as Mozart. A natural rock feature wall and dark stained ceiling timbers form the backdrop for a Gauguin inspired painting -- dancers already swaying to the melodies from a shimmering baby grand. Potted plants and two opposite banks of wall windows enhance the illusion this is a musical grotto in the woodlands.
Classic red and black, the colors of passion and power, give this music room a vibrancy that seems to say: here we honor musical visionaries from every era. Favorite albums and their dust jackets create a rhythmic pattern on one wall, perhaps inspiring the current musician. Heavy drapes in broad bands of color have a subtle air of traditional regality offset by the comfort of a contemporary armchair in scarlet.
We be jammin' here, so grab your favourite guitar or banjo and get set for an evening of improvisation and song with friends. Fabrics are natural -- leather chair and ottoman, wide-plank flooring, even a cowhide lampshade. A travel truck from the days of stagecoach travel doubles as storage and a display stand for an antique fiddle. A rifle is slung beside a standing lamp with oversized sheriff's stars climbing the base -- hey, they grow them big in Texas. The casual area rug completes the suggestion this is a cowboy's cabin for modern day musicians.
