Updating globe ligths
My second favorite is the other clear glass one with the bubbles in it, but that was John’s least favorite so it’s a no-go.
The small frosted one is a bit too small and it’s not as contemporary as I’d like, and the big frosted globe is a little TOO big.
Three of the new ones on the fixture to the right and the big frosted globe made it in amongst the old globes to the left: Here are a couple of close ups of the one on the left (try to ignore the old globes flanking the new one in the center…): And then the other set: I also took a couple of shots with the lights off since I know they are sort of hard to see.
So far, John and I are both leaning towards the grooved globe – It’s got that vintage vibe we like without getting into traditional.
It’s hard to tell in the photo above, but the two glass and chrome fixtures are a little traditional for our tastes…I’ve been scouring the internet for good deals on replacement light fixtures, but haven’t really found anything that it’s in our price range (which, as always, is cheap and/or cheaper).If your lights are controlled by a hard-wired light switch (e.g.not a Philips Hue switch), make sure that the switch is on.This sounds silly, but Philips’ regular LED lights look an awful lot like Hue bulbs, and more than one person has admitted to buying the wrong kind (my editor being one of them). When you go to add new lights within the Philips Hue app, you likely select “Auto Search”, but if it’s not finding any bulbs using that method, then you’ll have to resort to “Manual search”.Check the packaging and make sure they’re Hue lights. In our experience, Auto Search can be flaky from time to time, while Manual Search almost always works.

At about $60 for 6 of the globes, we’d be saving a lot of money since most of the fixtures I’ve seen are about that much for one – But I’m still not sold yet…
