Colored light bulbs are a popular addition to party settings, and can be used in everyday settings to add ambiance alongside general lighting. They can even help promote a theme within a room ... or within a community.
Some colored light bulbs are seen more often than others. For instance, we see see greens and reds during the Christmas season and orange lights around Halloween; and colored bulbs are sometimes used in porch lights to promote certain causes: blue for police (especially fallen police) and sometimes for autism awareness; green for veterans; pink for breast cancer; and so on. Sometimes a community will also encourage the use of a certain color to support something local.
One of the less common colored bulbs you'll see is the purple light bulb. Also useful (especially with orange) for Halloween, purple lights are also used in October by those trying to raise awareness of the problem of domestic violence. (October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.)
But purple is also a soothing color that can be used indoors to provide a gentle atmosphere throughout a room, or it can partner with general lighting to cast a special glow in one area, perhaps across a collection on a bookshelf, or hidden behind a plant or furniture to add a purple hue to a wall.
As with any colored light bulb, use of a purple light bulb indoors is limited to your imagination. And the purple LED we carry is a great way to create these effects without using much energy.
So if purple is your thing, how will use use purple lighting to enhance your home?
