    Thanks everyone! Yellow is my favorite color but it was kind of overwhelming picking out which shade to use... this is called "Sunny Day" from Ace Hardware's paint line and it turned out just the way I envisioned it with enough yellow to keep the room light and bright but not too much.

    It's fun to be surrounded by green outside... later in the summer I'll be able to enjoy some daylilies but right now there are lilacs outside the south window so I am letting their scent drift in. I can also see the lake out the west window. The increased light was a big factor in my move down to this room.

    Love the color! I rent so I can't paint the walls unless they're beige but my landlord and I work very well together so maybe I can ask??? Great job and love the floors too! Have fun!

    asimplelife- I love your room! Where to start...well, that paint color is perfect. Yellow is a difficult color to paint because there are so many shades and it can be so bright. Yours is like butta! And, it's light enough that it won't fight with colors when you put them on your design wall. The floors? LOVE - being able to sweep up thread rather than vaccum, what a great idea. Windows - the light that you get from outside is fabulous. However, the view looks so pretty outside, I might be distracted by that (but boy, I'd love to try to work in your area!). Your stuff is beautifully organized. Congratulations on your new space!!!

    Beautiful room, the paint is the exact color I have in my sewing room and I love it.

    I had my Granddaughter's boyfriend paint my kitchen and dining room a very light yellow (popcorn ball). I have white sheers in the DR and it looks so fresh and clean. I should have had him paint my new to me sewing room that color too. I was so anxious to get my cabinets up and didn't want to wait. My sewing room walls are a light beige. I don't have much wall space due to room layout. I do have two large closets for my fabrics.

    Mine was yellow and I painted it green, so wish I had kept the yellow. I love it, beautiful room, I have the same floor and am really happy with it. Really like all your windows.
