Light Color Matters

Posted by Karen Jess-Lindsley on May 03, 2012 6 Comments

Most people object to the harsh white or bluish light color typically associated with LEDs. As humans we are naturally drawn to the warm light associated with campfires and incandescent lamps. At Lindsley Lighting we only use LEDs with the warm light colorations that are most pleasing to the eye. All our luminaires are available with 2700K or 3000K high quality LEDs from two of the best LED producers in the world, CREE and Xicato.

What is Color Rendering & Why does it Matter?

Ever notice that under most fluorescent lights, people and objects do not have the same color as when they are viewed in natural light? OR, that most plants and materials appear in shades of grey under most outdoor lighting? Lighting geeks call this Color Rendering. Color Rendering or CRI (Color Rendition Index) measures how closely the spectrum of colors under a light source match the same colors seen in daylight. Lindsley Lighting’s high CRI (90+) LEDs produce colors that closely match the actual color. Skintones look natural; grass and leaves pop out in true greens; clothes, furnishings and wall colors exude the color that the designer intended.

Add taupe walls with that navy. Crisp white wood trim would pop against those walls in taupe. Add a rug with all coolrs, navy, taupe and some of that black, maybe geometric pattern. Those black frames will pop with white matting’s, make them all the same. Curtains taupe again but with navy trim down the edges. Buy the curtains and do the trim yourself with iron on tape. Sounds fabulous!
