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.
Picking art for any living space can be a complicated task for anyone. There is no right or wrong for individual taste. I personally like my rooms to tell a story and I find that Triptych Photographic wall art does this easily and affordably.
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.
