    Mine is in the laundry room so it is a rather dingy off white. I find that good lighting is more important than wall color for seeing true colors in fabrics. Unless you are talking a really bold color choice. If I could paint my dream sewing room, I'd choose a neutral or pale warm tone. MMMMM makes me seriously consider stealing the family room downstairs and claiming it as my own!

    Your sister is correct. The yellow will reflect color onto your work and you may not get a true white balance to give the true colors you are wanting...

    Nope. Mine's bright turquoise blue. It's really cheerful and it makes me happy to be in there.

    Dark Gray with bright white trim, it works for me.

    In the room I had, before I swapped rooms, it was a rosy mauve.
    Ask the landlord for permission to paint. They will likely say yes!

    My longarm room is yellow and I love it. My other sewing room use to be our guest room and it's painted gray on the top and dark blue on the bottom with a stencil in red painted at chair rail level. I like it too. I say paint it the color you want. It's nice to work in a room that has some style to it.
