Rhinestone CowgirlBy day, homeowner Jan Edwards is a graphic designer. By night, she's making her mark on the country music scene. But, you'd never know she is an aspiring songwriter and musician by her bland workspace. The room is not very conducive to creativity and the lack of organization also hinders her inspiration. Edwards would love a music room filled with vibrant color, comfy seating and a place where she can spread out her papers and put her words to song.
Musical WallMorales and Steffend then create their own musical composition on the walls. Lots of tape is used around the perimeter of the room to mark off the lines for the music staff. Chocolate-brown paint is used for the lines and notes.
