    Led bulbs come in a very wide range of color temperatures form 2700 (warm white i.e. yellowish) to 5000 (cool white i.e. bluish).  I tend to like the bluer ones in some settings (bathrooms, kitchen) but not others.  The Phillips L prize bulbs have a color rendering index about 90 and give a very pleasing warm white.  They are expensive but very bright (940 lumens from 10 watts with 360 degree dispersion) and are superior in a lot of other ways.  I bought some recently and the main problem is that the room is now so bright from four of them that I see every bit of dust on the furniture.
