A year and a half ago we offered a five week challenge on “Romanticizing Your Master Bedroom.” We are wondering how your room is looking these days? Have the dog days of summer crashed into your space making it stuffy and not so inviting? Has it lost it’s sex appeal? Does it fizzle, instead of “sizzle?” If so, you’re going to love our focus this week.
With the 4th of July a week away, we thought it would be good to use this week to add some fresh sizzle to our space. You know – stir those embers a bit and watch what cooks!
We will provide one challenge each day this week for you to complete. It won’t be hard, but it will require resolve on your part to do it. We guarantee if you do, by this time next week your space will be hot and inviting! Are you in? Let’s get started!
Day One – The letter “S”
Sexy or Sloppy?
Walk into your room and look at it as if you had never seen it before. What does your room say about the importance of romance to you? Does it look cluttered and thrown together? Does it speak of all the other things in your life – work, children, and/or unfinished projects? If so, take one hour today and remove all these things. Your room should be your haven – the one place you can go to retreat together as husband and wife. Retreating is hard to do when you’ve invited the world into your space.
The goal is to keep only those things that help you celebrate your love. Anything that draws your attention elsewhere should be kept in another part of the house or a closet.
One more thing we are going to challenge you to do every morning this week – make your bed. It will help your room look better immediately, and it will also motivate you to complete the day’s assignment.
So have at it! We hope you’re freshly inspired to Sizzle Your Space.
In lieu of our Mark Your Calendar post – we want to refer you to this site for some great ideas if you’re planning a night out this week!
