What's YOUR lighting style? The G.E. test...

How many light bulbs does it take to light your room?!? No joke. Light bulbs are not all the same. GE has put together a great presentation HERE to help you decide what lighting style works best in your home. Do you like bright spaces or cozy places? Maybe your style changes with the function of the room.
I just discovered GE's interactive lighting test. The test gives you room by room suggestions to help you choose the types of light bulbs that best suit your space. Not only that, there is an entire library of entertaining videos with design advice for different ways to decorate with light. Go check it out!
Is this important? HECK YA! Readers who frequent this palace should not forget that I repainted my entire kitchen because of my lousy light bulbs and the way they made the cabinets look like glow-in-the-dark green... makes me turn green just thinking about it.
Therefore... choose ye yer light bulbs... wisely.
What lighting style are you?

I love bright lights for the kitchen and dinning. But bedrooms, living rooms, etc.... all about accent lighting.

I checked this out. It was really cool. Thanks for posting it! It really helped because I have to start thinking seriously about lighting and paint right now.

It seems that I like cozy lighting. I have to agree for bedrooms and living rooms, but I like my kitchen and bathroom to be bright, bright, bright.

I love cozy and warm but bright lighting. I'm still learning how to light this old house well and would love to have some recessed lighting to brighten up the odd dark spots.

Very cool little interactive site they have there. I had no idea. Thank you! I'm stuck between cozy and intimate. I like the brightness they display with the cozy, but the intimate look is what I typically have goin' on around the house.
