The Kelvin Graph as Promised (finally)

Following is the follow up as promised to my Kelvin post of last week. Its interesting to note that sunlight is actually bad mood lighting. We have a tendency to think differently, but sunlight washes out the lighter colors and is roughly 5,000 degrees Kelvin. When we hired our showroom designer, Daren, he actually put shades on our windows. He essentially blocked the sun. The store actually has a much better "feel" to it. We are manipulated by light to some degree, but thats a subject for another post.

For energy efficiency, you should take advantage of natural sunlight, but for accent and/or mood lighting try to use a bulb with a lower Kelvin.
