GE Moodometer App Helps Set the Mood

Setting a mood in a room for entertaining is determined by 25% decor, 25% music selection, with the rest determined by your lighting choices. And there's nothing to ruin a room with what we like to call Hong Kong high rise lighting (an issue between some couples). Warm lighting from multiple sources is the key, help reducing glare and highlighting the features in your home you want people to notice. Now there's an app for your iPhone that helps out in this process...

Surprise, surprise, the GE Mood Cam App recommendations are all for their own line of bulbs, making this app useful if you're already a customer of the ubiquitous lighting brand (not far fetched, considering GE bulbs are available almost anywhere and everywhere). But the variety and selection of lighting options is a good starting point to understanding which sort of bulbs would help help a room feel more "Creative" versus "Dramatic".

The app lets users snap a photo of their own space and use the option of setting different lighting moods; basically it uses light/colour filtering to show how different bulb options can change the mood and look of a room, something we do with Photoshop and a better point-and-shoot camera. But if you've got an iPhone and are looking for an easy way to test the waters with new lighting options, it wouldn't hurt to give the GE Mood Cam App a try, especially since it's free.

Personally, we're all about silver bowl and Edison light bulbs at low wattages, with utility spaces like the kitchen, illuminated with CFL bulbs.
