Suggestion #1...talk to your wife.
If you look at the top of the page, there's an Interior Decorating section, orI'm still single hehe but i think its a funniest one,,
I don't like those huge 4" diameter fat Albert style bulbs like you see in dressing rooms for movie stars. I had them in one apt I lived in and they are expensive/don't last long and give off a LOT of heat which in summer makes the room very unpleasant. I have one with 3 regular 60 watt open bulbs with a cone shaped frosted shade and right over a mirror. Enough light to see my ugly ole mug when shaving.
Yeah the LEDs are great. I have them in my track lighting in the kitchen.Switch to led, lots of light, low heat, and runs on 15% the energy consumption as the reg bulbs. And the prices are starting to come down.
Also unlike the CFL's that don't like rapid on off cycles and have a warm up period to reach full brightness, the led's fire up to peak instantly

Our elec utility co. Manitoba Hydro had a great rebate and I got them 1/2 price. Lots more styles of bulbs and soon they will take over. Waiting for a tril-lite bulb for my floor lamp 50/100/150 watt replacement in a LED would be nice.
