Are you familiar with Philips Lighting? Adjusting the lighting conditions in your home can make a dramatic change in how your living space feels to you and your guests. Adding a touch of color can set a mood, enhance your decor, and otherwise free you from the harshness typically associated with CFLs and other common home lighting fixtures.

You can use color to decorate your home for the holidays, or make a room more festive without having to clutter the space with additional objects.

Enter the Philips LivingColors Generation 2 Translucent Changing LED Lamp. These lamps allow you to enhance any room with a touch of color. You can control which color the lamp gives off using a touch-sensitive remote control allowing you to set one of 16 million different shades across a full spectrum of colors.

My Experience with Philips Lighting

Philips Lighting: Redefine Color in Your HomePhilips isn’t a new presence in the world of colorful lighting. I’ve had several Philips hue LED Wi-Fi lights placed in my home for some time, and they accent (if not improve) the decor around the holidays. We can set lighting conditions to match the season, or even a look we’re going for on a particular day, all controlled wirelessly via our tablets and smartphones.

Being able to control the hue and vibrance of your interior lighting has a few more subtle advantages, as well. For example, color has a subliminal effect on your mood and general concentration. This has been shown in countless studies, and is a cornerstone to the science of stage lighting. A red hue can evoke feelings of aggression, but a slight hint of blue can have a calming effect. Various warmer (yellow) shades can result in smoother and more pleasant skin tones than you would find in harsher (white) lighting. The science is certainly there, and why shouldn’t you put it to good use in your home?

Whether you’re looking for a more natural look, or something a bit more artistic and mood setting, adding a little color to your home’s lighting can make a world of difference. Are these particular products worth considering given their relatively high price? That’s up to you to decide. For me, it’s an absolute yes.
