    I am in the process of redecorating my sewing room
    I want to paint it a color but am afraid to mess up my
    perception of colors when previewing fabric. Any Ideas or
    suggestions

    My sewing room is a light sage. It never interferes with fabrics on design wall. Would think any neutral or light color would work.

    I would use a neutral color like beige. This way bold colors will not be over powered by a bold background.

    Mine is a light buttery yellow color. Am very happy with it, especially during the winter!

    Mine is white, but that is because I am too lazy to move everything to paint it.

    Mine is a light purple - maybe lilac. I love it. The guy we bought the house from loved the Minn. Vikings and this is their color. I thought it was going to be a real deal breaker, but it has really grown on me.

    Welcome to the board from Southern California!
    I have a nice pretty light blue on the walls with the ceiling and trim and my wall of cabinets are white. My sewing desk and cutting table are white as well. But there are two large computer desks with hutches that are in an antique redish oak.

    I recently painted my sewing room - it was a spring green with hydrangea wallpaper border/accent wall. This time I painted a neutral color - kinda like cafe au lait, with cream ceilings,dark wood window sills, brown marbled tile on floor. I like it soooo much better, but can't really explain why :roll:

    I'm thinking of painting mine a faint light creamy pink. It sure needs a coat of paint!
