questions and ideas for a light

my idea is to make a light with two 250watt metal halide lamps and 2 96watt compact fleurecsent. the cf would run atinics and the metal halide i have questions with I have heard that runny a 6500k in one and a 20000k in the other would give the best lighting.would the light mix or would one side be blue and the othter be white. and if so what bulb is the best overall lighting. would I run the cf and the mh at the same time, also would I any other type of lighting. this should be the ultimate lighting lasting me forever. this would be completly built by myself. thanks
