Making Music for a Girl's Décor

Hitting the Right Notes for Boys
Some teen boys might like guitars mounted on the walls. If you have a drummer in your home, then set a stage just for the drums. Use various posters angled on the wall behind your drummer and be sure to add a couple of corner spotlights or actual stage lights to complete the effect. Paint the stage black or cover it with thick padding and carpeting. Use a color palette of black and red, orange and purple, black and blue or green and brown.
