New Piano!! :)

Look what I bought on Craig's list today!! :) I really LOVE the piano!! It was built in the 1920's, and so it looks/is antique...Brian is having a hard time with the less than perfect look, but I think it adds to the beauty :)

However, I would like a little input...the arrangement of the pictures and furniture need help!!


PROBLEM #1: I think the sailboat pictures are too big/tall above the piano (they are just leaning on the piano right now...I would hang them, not lean them). Should I swap the sun/vase/ picture frame /lantern ensemble for the sail boat pictures? I do like the silhouette the sun ensemble makes above my hutch....sorta a triangle. However, the hutch is shorter, so the sailboat pictures might look good above could look too top heavy?? I don't know?? Any ideas?? Perhaps something I haven't thought of.

PROBLEM #2: Also, the furniture arrangement...I like the set-up, but I'm not loving all the dark furniture at one end, and the light couch at the other end...think I should swap the couch and the chairs?? Also, does anyone think I need drapes?? What color?? Any other ideas?? :)
