LED replacement of "over mirror" lights?

Over each of our lavatories there is a row of round, clear lights with bayonet bases above the mirrors. I would like to replace these with LED's but can't seem to find any that would look nice up there. Have any of you found a replacement for those?

I replaced my incandescent lights with these

They may not meet your "look nice" requirement but 2 of them replaced 3 incandescents for us.

I don't think those would look too good over that mirror!

Thanks anyway!

I used 4 of these over our mirror. DW complained that they were too bright and had "white" light.

They offer three options, warm white, cool white, or natural white. If I get them I was planning to get the natural white. What you're saying makes me wonder it that will be too white!

Joe-

Most of us old(er) folks grew up with warm white incandescents (2700K). The yellow tinge is what we think of as "normal." I particularly like the way it compliments natural wood finishes.

In my shop lights I have "natural daylight" fluorescent bulbs, rated at 5000K. This rating supposedly comes close to natural daylight, so it helps to render things like paint colors as you'd see them outside. For the same reason, 5000K is sometimes recommended for makeup light use, so that makeup appears the same when applied and when out in the sun.

Yup, I think that's what Annette wants for putting on makeup, etc.
