    "The painting/repair team assigned to us was so professional, polite and efficient. The attention to small details made our house look really great. Tom, Bill and the team really listened to our concerns, whether small or large, and eliminated them all. It is so delightful to have had such a positive experience. We appreciate it very much."

    If you're looking for a little slice of serenity, there's no need to check yourself into a Buddhist monastery or scamper away to India a la "Eat Pray Love."

    The daily stresses of life might be enough to trigger a flight response in the form of a one-way ticket to the Himalayas, but according to some professionals, there's a simpler --- and more affordable --- way of hushing a buzzing brain: Create your own personal Zen retreat at home.

    Clodagh, an interior designer based in New York City, says true Zen is all about comfort. A Zen retreat can be a meditation room, a living room, a bedroom or a garden. Choosing appropriate Zen-style elements relies heavily on the individual and what puts each individual at ease.

    "Zen isn't about living in a monastery," Clodagh explained. "It's about celebrating every moment of your life."

    For Clodagh, the first step in building a tranquil environment that even a monk would envy involves fighting stagnation.

    "I think one of the most stressful things you could do is have too much stuff around your place. It doesn't leave your mind space to expand," Clodagh said, citing kitchens, bathrooms and closets as the major clutter culprits. "To create a Zen living space, or a calming living space, space where you can grow and think and become, the first thing you need to do is get rid of a lot of stuff. People think that if it's behind a door that it isn't going to affect you, but I believe it does."
