Our home is full of music. Pretty much always. While neither Kim or I have a musical bone in our body (with the exception of Kim’s early organ prodigy days; yes, the organ!), we’re both huge fans of music. We bonded over Talking Heads and vintage Aerosmith as friends before we even started dating, and we’ve been to hundreds of concerts together ever since! Seeing live music together is one of our favorite activities; it’s an indulgence we can both easily agree on.
All that said and in our humble opinion, a house doesn’t quite feel like home unless the lighting is just right and the playlist matches the mood perfectly. So after countless requests from you, our dear friends, we’re making our passion for music public. Yellow Brick Home is now on Spotify!
We’ve taken some of our favorite personal playlists and tweaked them to match the moods of our favorite spaces. We’ve also created playlists to pump you up while you DIY and bring you back to earth when the adrenaline stops flowing! You’ll surely hear some familiar songs and artists sprinkled throughout, as well as a few things that might, maybe be new to you. So far, we have over 16 hours of music ready to go, and we plan to keep adding as the mood strikes. We’ve put the songs into fairly specific order, so for best results, uncheck the shuffle icon and start with the first track. Happy listening! Psst: You can follow us on Spotify right here to stay up to date.
This playlist features upbeat-yet-mellow grooves that sound fantastic under the wood beam ceiling in the living room of our little Michigan fixer-upper. We’re pressing play on this one all the time!
Tree House II: Return of the Silver Maple
We love the Tree House playlist so much, we made a sequel. More songs to accompany an afternoon lounge on the couch or a mellow evening cocktail with friends. We hope our Silver Maple returns soon – in the form of a custom dining room table made out of its trunk!
DIY Pump Up
The project isn’t going as planned and you need a pick-me-up. An iced coffee (1 cream, 1 sugar, please!) and this playlist are the first order of business to aid in turning your day of DIY-ing around. These are songs to get you singing along and moving.
You’ve cleaned the dust off, eaten some dinner and its time to just. sit. down. Mostly mellow with a couple of smooth jams tossed in for good measure. (Fun fact: Old 45’s was playing when Lucy was born and I had the opportunity to personally thank Chromeo for creating the song that became the perfect soundtrack to welcome our little Goose to the world!)
This a compilation of upbeat songs for weekend brunch or an afternoon of deep cleaning the house. This one is designed to brighten your day.
House Party encompasses our master list of 6 1/2 hours of party jams so you can press play once and forget about it! Evolving versions of this playlist have soundtracked some of the most memorable gatherings we’ve ever hosted in our home. Now fill up your glass and go mingle.
