I use warm white, more pleasing for full timing. But all my friends use cool white for seasonal.
I use 23 chips 5050 that are a bit brighter then 1156 bulbs.

go with warm. The others will have a bluish tint that you probably won't like any more than the pure white.

My DW will only accept warm white, even with the present fluorescent bulbs although I've got two changed over to LED's and six ceiling ones to go.

Guess I should add: I bought 4 flat panel 48 LED units and used them in my four "scare" lights. They are pure white since I want them to be very bright. I also used a 24 light pure white panel in my porch light as the 48 was too bright there.

I replaced the 12 or so spotlights in the living area with warm LED 's and all the Fluorescent tubes with cool or bright LED strip lights.
I also added a continuous multicolour strip over top of the kitchen/living-room slide out reflecting against the ceiling,continuing on over the driver station, front-window and entrance! all controlled from 2 wireless remotes one sitting by the entrance and one sitting on the dinner table or coffee-table!
Then a variety of accent lighting and reading lights in the bedroom and Bathroom with cool white LED's.
I will still add a multicolour strip LED's under the awning against the Coach side, also controlled by remote controls.
So mix it up and make it so you can use it as the mood strikes or the need arises.

Regards,

Ed
