Hi dubir,

In addition to trying with a different color hue, I would suggest you to map the light emission to something more realistic than that plane color emission.

All the faces of your box has perfect plane uniform emission, while a real light box would never look that perfect: They use to present less intensities along the edges and higher intensities in the center of the faces.
You can achieve that effect by putting a non-emitting layer at the bottom of your emitter material, and map the emitter layer opacity painting a mask where the edges would have less presence of the emitter, and the center more presence.

This way your box would have a more realistic look, maybe what you are looking for.

Let me know if this helps.
