    Mine is definitely not white!! The background color in my avatar is the wall color, but this seems lighter than it actually is. I usually am very timid with paint color, but I wanted to have fun in my room, so I went for it. I've never regretted it. If you want yellow, go yellow.

    My sewing room is covered in a small print neutral wallpaper and mounted deer horns.......yes you are reading this correctly. It's a shared space with my husband. Gun cabinet on one wall, fly tying bench on another. I have my family's old kitchen table from the 50's set up right under the window and have taken claim to the closet. Every wall is covered with deer horns. Maybe I should tie some fabric strips around the horns for Christmas while hubby is out in Kansas on a hunting boondoggle?????? Redneck sewing room?

    I rent an old bungalow an the whole upstairs is painted a neutral light grey? I thought about painting it but my fabric covers all the walls, but what I did was I made a very small valance for my large sliding windows, its 10" tall by the length of the window an its a very abstract print with all the colors of the rainbow on it, it's just enough to brighten the room, and also represents all the colors in my fabrics that I use. Although I think yellow is a nice sunny color, you don't have to go real bright on it, I think it would work out ok, white is good too, but I really like alot of natural light from the window.

    The first time I painted my sewing room, I went for soothing and painted it a light sage green. The second time, I painted it a nice yellow - not too bright.

    Since my planning wall is white (and there is a lot of it), I didn't think I needed more white in my room.

    My sewing room is bright yellow - because that color wakes me up, seems to warm up the room in the winter and I just like it. Do what you like - you are going to be spending a lot of time in that room.
