I am still trying to decide whether I should paint my walls and add some sound panels for sound absorption or Put Velvet drapery along all the interior walls. I think that might do some sound absorption and deflection and be more astetically pleasing.... Anyone else do this????

I love Velvet. I would drape myself in Velvet. I wanna have myself ensconced in Velvet.

the problem with draping the velvet over the walls directly is that you will be killing your High frequencies, but doing nothing for your mids and lows. you will then need to use bass traps or other types of obsorption to try to flatten the rooms response, because it will most likely be too severe to fix with EQ.
