This mod just simply make the indoor lights brighter. I changed the LightRigScale in the data file Renderer.GlobalLightSettings ( 545AC67A-00B2600F-DEAD4915C9C6C0D8 in clientfullbuild9.package).
You can adjust the brightness urself in game, or make it even higher.

9/7/ Updated the version that slightly increased the environmental lighting. The default brightness is lowered by 40%, but still much brighter than vanilla game.

For some of user reported that the brightness went back, it's caused by loading(include loading, leaving lot, entering CAS etc.). The brightness will be automatically set back to default when you try to modify the brightness again after loading.
This issue also appeared in vanilla game without modding, it's not caused by this mod. Hope some day EA will fix this problem.
Here I recommend you, once you have finished modifying your brightness, then ignore those lamps at all!

Really useful modification. I can not play without it. With this mod I do really see objects and furniture in my house as they are, the white objects are really white at last, not dark-gray any more! I wondering why EA made so bad lighting, the game is really awful with it`s original lighting.

Thank you dear creator for this saving mod!

I have found one problem, I cannot set the brightness and use the lamps in autonomic mode at the same time. I mean, when I set the brightness of one or all lamps and if after this action I choose use lamps in autonomic mode, the brightness goes to the max level and does not save my settings of brightness. I would be absolutely happy if creator can fix this problem.

I'm still using it in January 2017 and it has not caused any conflict for me ever since I downloaded it (at least a year ago).
