In the New Bohemians Handbook, I wrote a lot about natural and artificial light because I REALLY feel that lighting in the home can so dramatically affect quality of life. Good lighting can make your whole life better– and bad lighting can have the opposite effect. At the time, I didn’t yet know about Soraa light bulbs but now that I do, I’m SO excited to share them with you. You see, I like the light that incandescent light bulbs give off, but they’re so energy inefficient that governments all over the world are phasing them out entirely. Light-Emitting Diodes, or LED lights, are extremely energy efficient but most LED lights have color gaps, which means they don’t show colors as they appear in natural light–so colors looks washed out and dull. Soraa Radiant LED lights are the only LEDs on the market with full spectrum technology that allow you to see every color as nature intended.

Soraa’s Radiant light is beautiful white light that mimics natural light and allows deep reds and true whites to shine.  The color gaps in other LED lights can make your home and the objects in it look drab – ummm, no gracias! I’m all about bringing color into spaces – not washing it out! Soraa Radiant light brings out the pink tones in the paint color and highlights all the deep reds in the artwork and textiles, making this lounge so much more warm, rich, vivid and inviting. The warm, rich, pink and deep red tones are the colors the space was designed around, so they deserve to shine! Other lights make the walls look neutral instead of pink, and make everything else look washed out – putting a major damper on all our jungalicious vibes.

The impact lighting can have on the colors in your home is HUGE! Have you ever picked out a paint color in the store, brought it home, put it on a wall and wondered, “What color is this?!” Colors can look very different in the store, under artificial fluorescent light. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you are seeing the paint color in natural – or close to natural – light. Or have you ever been to a flea market or thrift store and fell in love with a piece of art because of its rich colors, but once you brought it home, found that it lost some of its pizazz? It might be because the lighting in your home is washing out the colors. When we can see colors more vividly, we simply feel better, so it’s no surprise that good lighting can make a home feel more beautiful because #LightMatters!

Our exposure to light affects EVERYTHING – from our physical and emotional well-being, to our sleep cycles and concentration. So if the lighting in your home isn’t bringing it’s A-game, I highly recommend giving Soraa Radiant LED light bulbs a try. You can also follow Soraa’s Instagram to see how their bulbs bring out the colors and details in textiles, homes, and people!
