Soundproofing Bedroom Wall

I live in an apartment and my bedroom wall is the common wall with the hallway. There is an elevator on the opposite wall. I can hear the ding the elevator makes. Everyone waiting for the elevator can hear the sound from my bedroom. What can I put on the walls that would be decorative and absorb the sound? Thanks so much.

If it is the interior finished wall that you want to address
you will have to consiter astetics.
Sound bounces off hard surfaces, sheetrock walls and ceilings.
If you have sheetrock ceilings, add an acoustic ceiling tile. You can get these in different sizes, and limited design.
Acoustic ceiling tiles will help, but if you still have a problem, the
walls would be the next area to address.
I am sure that the interior design forum would have prettier ideas, or could refine the materials for your area, but some things to consider would be:
Cork or a sound dampning interior material that is still decorative I am sure that there are some out there.
Quilts are large tapestries
What you would be ideally doing is lessning the hard flat areas that causes sound to reverberate.

Thank you! Yes, it is an interior wall and the wall is the problem. I do not see a forum named "interior design forum"
