Love this lighting but be careful what it can do to your paint color

Color Tip: Keep in mind that each of these lighting fixtures will change the way that color is viewed in your room. In other words, these fixtures will add a yellow cast to your room color – especially the fixture on the top right. I know because that is the lamp that is in my office and I have to be super careful NOT to have that on when I am viewing colors for a project. Here’s what may happen:

See how the color swatch on the right has more of a yellow undertone? This is very typical of the color changes that happens when you have a very yellow bulb or shade. I rely on natural light or a cleaner light source when I am viewing colors in my office.

Always keep light in mind!
