I remember as a realtor going through homes on Monday morning realtors tour of new listings and in this one particular home the carpets were covered with a clear plastic sheet, supposedly to keep them clean, but when you walked on the plastic you could feel a layer of oil, like cooking oil, on your feet afterwards.

Remember the first step to success in this task is, not to leave everything to the decorator you hire. Your personality, choice and style should be clearly visible from the interior of your home - - so you have to keep on telling the decorator about your preferences. You need to know what color combination are warmer and what are cooler. This will help you select the colors by keeping in mind the kind of weather you have in your area. For sun room, kitchen and living room you can go for warm colors such as red and orange. You can also use multicolor in some of the rooms such as let one wall be painted with yellow and the other three with orange; this is a perfect combination for rooms that get no access to light and sun.
How to use your serenity room? Take an hour per week, or day, or whatever time you decide, and go there. Light the candles. Draw the shades. Put on acappella chant, Tim Janis, Enya, or Secret Garden on the stereo. Stretch out together on the pillows, and just listen to each other breathe. Relax. Enjoy. If this isn't part of everyone's mental health regimen yet it soon will be, as people discover the value of this priceless 'sensory deprivation'. The biggest obstacle you'll find in the beginning is allowing yourself the luxury of ignoring all the 'have to's', 'should be's' and general restlessness that causes you to need the room in the first place. But it's noise that's the primary concern.
