Unless you’re channeling your teenage bedroom, those unframed band posters aren’t doing your grown-up pad any favors in the decor department. If you want a space that reflects your musical tastes but you’re not quite sure how to ditch the dorm room aesthetic, then consider hitting Etsy for your next interior design refresh.
The popular handmade marketplace is stacked with endless music-inspired decor ideas. The most obvious ones include wall art emblazoned with the lyrics or sheet music of your go-to tunes, but you can also go a step further and immortalize your guitar heroes and lyrical geniuses in soundwave form. Another idea: go beyond the standard record album frames and opt for sleek displays that’ll be the envy of any visiting DJ.
Here, we’ve rounded up 10 cool pieces of music-inspired merch that can be found on Etsy. Check out our favorites below.
