    What color does everybody think my sewing room should be? I am thinking that a color MAY distort the fabric colors I may use. I have several OTT lights and a 4x4 window that faces S.E. so I get lots of natural light. Thoughts anyone?? Thanks in advance! :D

    With your ott lights, I don't think color of the walls really matter. Do what makes you happiest :D

    I say a nice pastel color to keep the room bright and cheerful.

    great minds, eh? Just how many "pale peach" colors are really out there? We are building a house now and it took me MONTHS to get the colors "RIGHT"! lush sage, Spring something or other (lighter green) and clove bud (copper looking) for trim. Sounds weird but look WONDERFUL... It sure doesn't take me long to pick out quilt fabric.

    Anything that reflects any kind of light, that way you have a neutral background when picking your colours
