Words of a Song as Music Decor

The words in your favorite song or songs can be displayed as wall decor. Wall decor comes in many shapes and sizes. It is also possible to use multiple items and create a grouping using multiple items. When I put multiple items together in a group, I find that using an odd number works best to create a gallery wall.

Sometimes it is possible to find wall decor that is designed to stick to a large wall. It might be the word Music or perhaps the flow of piano keys or multiple musical instruments. Designs of this type make a nice decoration over a sofa or the head of a bed.

Words of a Song

A country music artist really got my attention when he sang the song God Bless the USA. Recently I came across a wall plaque with words from that song. The lyrics "If tomorrow all the things were gone I'd worked for all my life" still have meaning. In today's world, people who were in the path of the devastating hurricanes and fires, and others suffering losses can all relate. He won a Country Music Award for Song of the Year in 1985 for writing God Bless the USA.

Whenever I hear the name, Lee Greenwood, I think of a couple of other songs for which he is known, and he is known for many. They are The Flag Still Stands for Freedom and I'm Proud to be an American Where at Least I Know I'm Free.

Think about using patriotic wall decor that brings a sense of warmth with its lyrics.

What about Hymn Tunes

Hymn tunes can also be found. I have a music box that plays What a Friend and the music of the song is inscribed on the lid that opens. I have also enjoyed wall plaques with a page from an old hymnal decoupaged on the plaque. The most popular hymn tunes that I have seen are The Old Rugged Cross, Blest Be the Tie also called DennisIn the Garden and The Little Brown Church in the Vale. Another that one might look for is Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.

Favorite hymns could be displayed in a wall grouping, perhaps on a wall over a piano. Displaying  one plaque on a narrow wall is also be a nice touch.

Song Titles 

Vinyl records from the past also come to mind. Find a vinyl record from the past with the name of a popular song to which you or a loved one enjoyed listening. Create a wall display either using the record itself, or perhaps an album cover matted in a simple frame. The possibilities are endless. How many songs and/or artists can you think of that you would like to remember?   

Think about the words of a song that brings a smile to your face.

Experience the Joys of Music Decor -- See, Hear, and Feel

Music became an important part of my life at approximately nine years old. It happened around the time I was introduced to piano lessons. Wow! Playing the notes and hearing the melody was a new and welcome adventure.

The adventure was all mine! I loved it! No one could do this for me. I had a teacher, but ultimately, I had to do this by myself! When thinking about it, I am reminded of individuals who learn to ride a unicycle. How does one explain the sense of accomplishment? Thinking back, a lot more opportunities presented themselves.

Square Dancing, it is said, is friendship set to music. More specifically, western style square dancing is commonly done with eight people in a square. Sometimes all eight people are moving, while there are other moves that require only four people to move. Dancers typically go through a series of lessons to learn the movements. When they complete the lessons, they can go to dances across the country and dance with other couples. Square Dancing is universal. It is not a competition. The people who do it do it for fun, and love music. Songs may be sung in various languages, but the calls to which they dance are all in English. People square dance around the world. Imagine the fun of dancing to the beat of the music and the sense of accomplishment felt when one can do this!

The Sounds of the Music

Music decor within a room is only one way to see and feel the presence of music. Experience an activity that comes to life with the sound of music. I love to hear the sound of chimes ... the sound that one hears when a wind chime is nudged by the wind ... it is music to my ears, especially tuned chimes.

A Melody in your Mind

Hear the melody play in your head, over and over again. How many times have you heard a song or a catchy tune and for the remainder of the day, you simply could not get it out of your head? You even find yourself walking to the rhythm of the beat. Perhaps you even begin to hum or sing along.

Feel the Joy Music Brings

Let your heart feel the joy that music brings. Have you ever seen tears well up in someone's eyes when their heart feels the joy of music as they hear a song that touches their heart? I have. One time as I was playing "How Great Thou Art" and as I looked out over the group of listeners, I saw a person with tears streaming down their cheeks as this song touched their heart. Another time, I was in a group of people and saw tears welling up in a person's eyes as they listened to someone sing "The Green Green Grass of Home".

Music is Around Us 

Yes, it is wonderful to fill our homes with music decor! But, also, pay attention to the music around you, even when it is silent. Do you see it? Do you hear it? Do you feel it?

Are there nature sounds? Is there a rhythm to the sound of the falling rain? Is there a new rhythm waiting to be heard? Is there a rhythm sound that needs to be set to music and experienced in a song?

Think about it ... as you experience the joys of music decor in your life!

Music Decor and Color

Colors for music decor are best defined by the person who is looking for music decor. What they are looking for and how they want to use it may greatly impact their choice of colors. If you start at the beginning and read all of my posts, you will find that music decor can be full of every color in the rainbow.

Some questions you might ask yourself are:

'Are you looking for something in particular?'
'How or Where do you want to use it?'
'What is the color scheme?' and 'What is your favorite color?'

Personally, I like a lot of color, but my scheme for decorating has normally been to select earth tones for the large items in the room, window treatment, and wall covering colors. This makes changing the look of the room much easier. All I have to do is change the color of the accessories or change the actual decor. I like music decor because I like music and it makes me happy. Also, it is very easy to change or rearrange.

One scheme let me add one bright-colored item, such as a red chair. After that, the decor on my walls and other items in the room could take on any color or muliple colors that compliment what is already there.

Another scheme let me add light blues to the earth tones in the room. As long as the blues in the room blended with each other, I could still add accessories in blues or those that blended well with the blues in the room.

What is not to love about music decor ...

Color it happy in shades that compliment your setting. The variety is phenomenal!

Where to find it ...

First of all, are you looking for something in particular? If so, it could be easy to locate, or depending on what you are looking for, it might take a little longer to locate. Let's face it. Some items relating to music decor are readily available at specialty stores, i.e. ones that carry musical instruments or other large items. Others are located within larger stores or grouped with other music-related merchandise. They may be found on the web as well as brick and mortar stores.

One day I decided to browse on the internet. Much to my surprise, I found some items at Bed Bath & Beyond and other items at Hobby Lobby -- Stores that sell other items often carry interesting decor that falls within the realm of music-related home decor. Terms you might enter in a search box besides music decor might be music, musical, music notes, keyboard, guitar, and other words relating to music decor.

At the time I was searching, Bed Bath & Beyond had an item called Wood Guitar Pick Wall Art. I am including a link if you want to take a peek and check it out.

At Hobby Lobby, I searched for music wall decor and also for music stickers. Do-it-yourselfers or scrapbookers might also find an assortment of music word stickers.

Sometimes you might need to think outside the box and just browse to see what comes up when you search. I have found many items relating to music decor in stores that carry things in a variety of categories. Until you actually look or search, it is hard to know what you can find.

The Hunt ...

The hunt to find unusual items relating to music decor is part of the journey in creating the atmosphere you want for your room. In the right-hand column of this blog, you can also find links to some of the items I have already located. My intent is to share links which you may enjoy, but not overwhelm you. It is so much fun having a happy room by adding music decor that blends well.
