And while we're on the subject of clutter and no clutter - I was reading Unclutter today and I came across this post. I don't have a music room, I have a music area. I loved this post because it had some great solutions to clutter that goes with playing an instrument.
I'm not sure why this photo is so grainy. (Cell phones gotta love them.) My music area is in the dining room - it works just fine for me. I painted my music stand a bright green just for fun. Extra music goes in my teak book case. Metronome sits on the shelf.
