? about lighting/do you hate fluorescent light?

12 years ago

My dining room looks really pretty in the late afternoon, I have decorated in earth tones and everything looks warm and golden.

At night, the room looks lifeless and dull! I think the culprit is the chandelier I bought, which only takes fluorescent bulbs. (I regret it).

What is it about fluorescent lighting that makes things look bad? Does it take certain colors out? Does anyone know if there is a kind of fluorescent bulb that's not as bad?

btw, I'm thinking of hoarding incandescent bulbs for my lamps since they are phasing those out!
