Day Four – The Letter “L”
How is the Lighting in your bedroom? There was a day when candlelight was the only option, and a good one at that! It was cheap and very romantic. Now we have so many choices – flourescent, incandescent (not for long though), lamps, canned lights and candles. What options to you have in your room?
We had the privilege of visiting a very wealthy man’s home once. As we toured the mansion, he took great delight in showing us the lighting features in the master bedroom. He had a button for reading, a button for watching the sunset and a button for romance! As he pushed each button the room immediately became the perfect setting for the occasion.
Not many of us can afford to have such a luxury, but there is something to be said about thinking seriously about our options. Tom and I have dimmers on every switch in our bedroom; they are inexpensive and make any light fixture easily romantic. And we have invested in battery operated pillar candles – a must for any serious romantic! Another fun alternative is to hang clear stringed lights from the ceiling – you may not want to keep these up all the time, but they sure would be fun for an especially romantic date night at home. The quick peel and stick hooks will make this easy to do in any bedroom. Hey, why not plan a Christmas in July Date Night complete with lighting and STARS! – Of course, you’ll be the star after putting such thought into the lights! Who knows – you may just give “lights, camera, action,” a whole new flair! For your spouse’s eyes only, of course! 🙂
