Q: Hello! I've lately been improving my apartment, which is located in a beautiful old building: hardwood floors, tall ceilings, etc. Here's the thing: my apartment is also located within the girls' dorm at a boarding school. While it's adorable, I recently realized my neighbors can hear my phone conversations or TV. Is there a way to sound-proof my external walls (10 feet-ish, all old plaster), while making it still look attractive?
