7 Music Spaces that Strike a Chord


We dig it when digs set aside a space for kicking back, relaxing, and listening to some tunes. The range of rooms we've seen these days tends to err on the calmer side—louder, more jazzed-up spaces have given way to quiet places in the house to sit and absorb lyrics and melodies. Mid-century media consoles and older media players are back in full effect as well—a sign of the times that people are looking for ways to express music taste beyond their laptops, where it all now currently resides. If you find yourself in this category, check out our inspiration for how to style your own music and listening space—they're guaranteed to strike a chord:
