(I know virtually nothing about lighting or the correct terms to use.)
This is going to sound weird and I'm going to come across as a bit odd, but..
I have 2 spare rooms in my house I have in one room a large window to let in day light and have a nice 'daylight bulb'. It gives off a bright, clean, slightly blue (hard) feeling light. I use this room to read in when I can. White paper looks very white.
For the other spare room I want a 'dirty' orange/yellow light (bordering or maybe even slightly bleeding into red). It would have to be a soft and have a comforting feel to it, if it . They only lights I've seen close to what I want are low powered street lights with sodium pressure bulbs. From the little I've understood from reading, the bulb that might work would be a SOX bulb? Paper would look very yellow and creamy like very old newspapers.
Can I buy a free standing lamp that will accept one of these bulbs? Or is there a much better solution you can advise. I don't want to spend more then £150-200 if possible.
Some further searching leads me to believe that I need a light averaging a 589.3nm wavelength. Also it needs to be low pressure if its a SOX.
I like the way the light washes out most colours and leaves a muted feel to your surroundings so they become less of a distraction.
