The new Phillips ceiling light – Hue Being

It’s not that easy to find the perfect lighting for our bedroom. A pendant doesn’t quite work because the light point is not right above the bed. We did have pendants, mind you. A fair few different ones even. But I was never completely satisfied.

Testing the entry model Hue in collaboration with Coolblue.

So when I was given the opportunity to test the Hue Being by Phillips, via Coolblue, I didn’t hesitate. I had considered the Hue lighting before but thought it was quite a big change. It’s an entire system and to replace everything at once was a bit of a thing. So to be able to start with this entry model was an excellent starting point. I didn’t have to change all the lighting in my home at once!

Pleasant lighting.

I’m very happy with my Hue Being ceiling lamp with remote control. I can operate it from the bed and dial it up or down. There are four shades of lighting. From warm light to a more blue white tone. Ideal to read a book at night but also for example to clean the room in white light. We sometimes love watching television in bed and then you dim it to a soft warm light. In the morning, particularly on weekends, it’s lovely to start the day with this warm soft lighting. Quite a difference with the stark light that came off the light bulb that was there the last few months. You can probably imagine. The moment Peter turned on the light on Saturday mornings I’d crawl back under the doona!

Finishing Touch.

Now I am on the hunt for nice little pendants above the bedside tables. But I’m afraid that purchase might take a little longer. I don’t really need them anymore! I do like the simple light bulbs on a cord. Perhaps I’ll finish the bedrooms with beautiful bulbs, possible from the Hue series!

Love, Andrea
