How to temporarily reduce sound through a shared door?

In a few weeks I will be moving into a new place. It's a house-mate rental situation, and due to an odd design in the house, there is a door between my bedroom and that of my house-mate's. What I would like to do is figure out an attractive way to help to reduce the possible noise factor between the two rooms.
I need a solution that is temporary--no building extra walls.
I need a solution that is attractive--I really really don't like those hippy wall tapestry things. My style tends to skew pretty shabby chic/minimal/whites and soft blues and greens.
Ideally I would like for this to be a cheap solution (under $150ish) as I have very little money to spare.
Also, I am not handy but the people I'm living with are, so they might be able to help. It should be noted that we don't have any kind of building equipment or space to build anything (Brooklyn apartment).
This isn't a matter of us being able to hear each other breathing at night or anything, it's just more of a preventative thing.
