    I do the same thing with my light fixtures.

    My wife and daughters won't let me put CFLs in the lights above the bathroom mirrors: the green light and their olive skin combine to make them look like LGM.

    They make Daylight CFLs, more of a blueish tinge than a yellow one. This is what we use in my home, we started using CFLs in the house years ago because they don't heat up the house as much. It makes a big difference in the spring and summer.

    Daylight or Cool White CFLs are what I use often.
    Does anyone use light tubes?
