When we bought our house, I never thought to look in the rooms to see what type of light there was. I just had assumed there would be overhead fixtures, like there was in the kitchen and the hallway. There had to be some type of light on the ceiling fan, no?
There is a serious lack of light in our house. And while we have learned to make do with the lack of light (e.g. only go into some rooms during daylight hours or walk around with a portable lamp), it’s made me realize that the lamps we do have cast a yellow shade. I noticed this especially as I tried on a lot of my clothes (because who waits until after they move to clean out their closet?) and in the dim yellow light, could not tell if something was navy or black.
But then, I was introduced to OttLite – which was actually invented by Dr. Ott, the guy who created time lapse photography – offers LED Lamps that bring the power of natural daylight indoors. What does that mean? Well it means you are able to see details and colors more clearly, and ultimately reduce eyestrain and glare.
I was invited to give OttLite a try. I loved the lamp with the desk organizer, but ultimately chose the 2-in-1 LED Magnifier Floor and Table Light. I’m still getting settled into our home, so liked the flexibility of where I could put the lamp, especially since I’m not near-ready to decorate! I’m still unpacking boxes! I also thought the magnifier would be helpful for some future projects down the road – whether sewing on a button or just dealing with my old age.
While I will not show you photos of me in some ill-fitting clothes where I was finally able to tell the difference in shirts, I will tell you that I was able to curl up – at night – with a book, and noticed a dramatic difference in the lighting. And yes, this was a hard cover book – afterall, if I moved these books an hour outside the city, I might as well read them instead of my Nook. As I curled up with the book, I could definitely tell the difference – the light was significantly brighter, much more of a white light than yellow.
