When picking out light bulbs you should keep in mind what color temperature you will want.  The hue of illumination is measured in Kelvin. Some of the common color temperatures are as follows:

2200K is a very warm, amber yellow light more like candle light.

2700K is a warm light that has a soft yellow tint. 

3000K is a bright crisp light that shows more true white. 

5000K is more closely compared to bright daylight and has a blue tinted white light.
