Hey ya’ll, it’s fall! It’s time to unpack the jackets and jack-o-lanterns in preparation for the best season in the mountains! Warmth and comfort are often associated with a home’s interior durings this season. A great way to add warmth to your home is with lighting. Table and floor lamps can help create a warm and inviting ambiance indoors. Understanding color temperature is very important to achieve this. Utilizing warm/soft white LED light bulbs in your living space really helps set the tone for that warm ambiance you are looking for.
LED light bulbs come in many different color temperatures, or kelvins: this references the color that the bulbs emits. A 2700-3000 kelvin light bulb is warm, like the traditional color an incandescent bulb emits. The higher the kelvin, the closer to daylight color the bulb becomes. If you want to create a warm atmosphere 2700 kelvin is the bulb temperature to use in a shaded lamp in your living room.. but for reading or general overhead lighting you will want at least a 3000-3500 kelvin bulb, this is still on the warmer side but not as warm as an old incandescent bulb. Most task lamps made specifically for crafting or reading are 4000-5000 kelvin because this temperature renders color much better which makes it easier for you to see; however, for most homes this color temperature would appear too “blue” as a general or ambient source of lighting, thus the need for task lamps exists.
Now that you have a general understanding of color temperature, you can select the style of lamps that will work in your home. Hubbardton Forge, a hand forged lighting company crafted in Vermont, offers a variety of styles from Traditional, Transitional, Contemporary, and Modern. At the Silver Fox Gallery & Interiors, a furniture store in Hendersonville, you can see this exquisite Anastasia floor lamp that would be a great addition to a living room, office or bedroom. Like most of Hubbardton products it is available in 5 different metal finishes with multiple lamp shade fabric options, making it easier than ever to customize the lamp to fit your decor.
