Pale yellow or antique white (has slight yellow cast to it) is warm, comfortable. Get at least one incandescent or halogen floor lamp for indirect lighting that can be adjusted according to the intensity of light that you need at any time–and a halogen or incandescent desk lamp.
Fluorescent lighting is hard on the eye and the brain. Fluorescent lamps do not give out a steady light, instead they flicker (fluctuate in intensity) at a rate that depends on the frequency of the driving voltage. While this is not easily discernable by the human eye, it can cause a strobe effect posing a safety hazard in a workshop for example, where something spinning at just the right speed may appear stationary if illuminated solely by a fluorescent lamp.
