I've heard many interior designers express disdain over the quality of light emitted from fluorescent light bulbs. However, incandescent bulbs will be phased out starting January 2012, unless someone comes to save the day with an incandescent that saves as much energy. What do you think about all this? Should we be able to choose?I'm of the mind that we should be able to make a light bulb choice the same way we're able to make an upholstery choice, green or no. What do you think?
