If you’re looking for an uplifting antidote to the winter blues, clever use of coloured light bulbs can transform a plain space into a relaxing urban retreat. Introducing mood lighting doesn’t have to mean a rainbow palate of colours – light bulbs technology has moved on quite a bit since the days of harsh red bulbs as the only alternative to plain lamps. Coloured bulbs don’t have to hark back to childhood funfair rides and amusement parks either; choose your bulbs and colours with care and you’ll create a vibrant space that reflects the mood of the room while infusing your home with a touch of design brilliance.
Colour has often been thought to have an impact on mood and healing and colour therapy is an increasingly popular alternative to more traditional means of treating physical, mental, emotional and spiritual complaints. Tapping into this knowledge by adding just a few coloured lightbulbs in key spaces can alter the whole sense of a room while also giving therapeutic benefits to the occupants.
