Impression created by use of ‘warm’ fluorescents inside this home is friendly and inviting, from the garage on the left to the study on the right. The design of the exterior fixtures lent themselves to incandescent bulbs, so low wattages (25 watts) were used to minimize glare. Energy efficient lighting does not mean ‘fluorescent only’.
