Shhh…we’re trying to hibernate here


You already know a peaceful home is a happy home. While that likely means choosing your furniture, lighting and home fabrics based on their comfort quotient, there’s one thing that’s easy to overlook — soundproofing.

Nothing zaps your zen quite as quickly as the sound of noisy neighbors above you, or honking cars outside. But we know what you’re thinking: soundproofing equipment is pretty ugly — remember those foam pads that covered the walls of your music room at school? There are, however, plenty of home decor choices you can make to help absorb excess noise, and they don’t necessarily mean skimping on style.
