Everyone feels that your home is your castle and you love it but and when it comes time to move and you want to sell your home you need to see it in the eyes of others. What you think is attractive, beneficial or great decorating will not be seen the same when showing your home to a perspective buyer.
Your favorite new age or classical music--Tim Janis, Enya, Secret Garden. Incense and/or candles. (Please don't burn the house down, fire trucks are really noisy!) Set aside a certain time every day, or as needed. No need to actively meditate, although you may find it unavoidable after a short time, and that's okay. One small detail that you may wish to incorporate is a copy of Desiderata©***, the Max Ehrmann poem popular in the '60s that says, in part, \"Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.\" If there was ever a time this little poem is needed it's now. Taking turns reading it may be a good way to start your session every time.
Find a spare room--empty bedroom, walk-in closet, furnace room or bathroom if need be, and turn it into your serenity room. Darken the walls. Furnish the place with very little--a stand for candles, a small stereo, floor pillows. Heavy shades will enhance the mood. Install a lock on the door. Better yet, make the room off limits to anyone under the age of thirty, or shorter than three feet. Make that four feet. And no pets, either. One suggestion, unless cost is a factor, is an actual contracted remodeling. Look in the Yellow Pages or Online under quiet rooms, in-home theater construction or meditation rooms and peruse all the offerings. There are elaborate window shades, a product called QuietRock that is, drywall fabricated specifically for sound deadening applications. There are indirect, or mood lighting resources, even lighting that enhances the amount and kind of light if you suffer from seasonal affective disorder, in addition to noise pollution. . The same affect in reducing outside noise may be achieved by hanging blankets on the walls, and that may be a novel solution for couples. The wall hangings can be an art project, or a garage sale/antique store/self-spoiling expedition.
A high quality triptych photograph displayed in a living room or dinning room can be elegant, thought-provoking and a great conversation piece for your guests. You could pick a view of your dream vacation, a view of a place you have always wanted to visit or a tropical beach scene of a place you have been to many times. You might want to display a triptych still life photo of objects that complete the scene you have already created.
You should also take into consideration whether or not you will be doing a lot of entertaining and having dinner parties, if this is the case it's a good idea to have an island stove top and a separate wall oven. The extra room will help your dinner parties go as planned.
