New GE Website Helps Consumers Discover Their Lighting Style

CLEVELAND, Ohio — (NYSE: GE)  Lighting is as important to home décor as paint or accessories. It can make rooms cozier, more motivating, and even more intimate. GE's newly launched www.whatsyourlightingstyle.com (also reachable at www.gelighting.com) helps consumers weigh whether their interior lighting choices match their personal style. At the new site, designer and ''GE Lighting Guy'' Brice Cooper describes four distinct lighting personalities, while offering tips and techniques that will help create a room to reflect different lighting styles. 

GE asks: What's your lighting style?

Blank Canvas — Have you always had a knack for arts and crafts? Do you love spending free time creating something from scratch? If you've envisioned yourself as an artist, then you're a Blank Canvas, Finger Painting, and Color Palette Lighting Style.

Hopeless Romantic — Do wine and roses hold a place in your heart? Does a moonlit walk on the beach sound like the perfect way to end a day? If passion is your passion, then you're a Hopeless Romantic, Jazzy Ambiance, and Silk Robe Lighting Style.

Busy Bee — Are you someone who thrives on challenges? Are you skilled at juggling numerous tasks simultaneously with style? If you get a kick out of tackling the big projects, then you're a Busy Bee, Mover-and-Shaker, Up and At 'em Lighting Style.

Fuzzy Slippers— Do you love curling up on the couch with a good book, a movie or a loved one? On a Saturday afternoon, would your feet most likely sport fuzzy slippers rather than hiking boots? If you love to kick back and relax then you're a Fuzzy Slippers, Footy Pajamas, and Knitted Blanket Lighting Style.
