    I have a lot of natural light in my sewing room and the walls are painted a soft dove grey. I have been so happy with this color since it doesn't compete with any of my fabrics on my design wall and gives my eyes a rest from all the happy fabrics.

    my great room is painted cheery yellow so I have lots of color in other parts of the house.

    Dh calls this 'papaya' orange. It doubles as a computer room too. I absolutely LOVE this color. I picked it out ~7 years ago when I was in nursing school and had A LOT of homework and needed a large space to spread out all my books. Now that table has my 3' x 6' cutting mat on it (all the time). Go with a color you love, and you'll be golden!
    Go forth and sew!

    Many artists and photographers use pale gray. I'm told it doesn't interfere with color in their project.

    I wish that I could paint my walls, but we rent our condo.

    Of course the own said we could paint, but we would have
    to paint them back to white if/when we move.

    Of course since we have been living in the same place for
    10 years it's not likely that we will be moving anytime in
    the near (or distant) future.

    I did mine in all white and put a sewing border all around, 30" from the floor. It's very light and easy on the eyes....just my sewing machine light is enough unless it's a dreary day.

    Mine is a very pale, soft blue. It's clean and bright without staying with a pure white and you still have the benefit of no "yellow light" reflections and keeping your colors true.

    White because it's the complete neutral and doesn't clash with any colors. It may be boring to some, but it's a clean palette-and that's very important for working with many colors.

    When I first did my sewing room, I used a soothing sage color. Loved it for about 10 years and decided it was time for a change. I then painted my sewing room a nice cheery yellow - not too bright, but not pale either. I think you should do whatever makes you the happiest.

    Even though I love color, when I get my new sewing room this summer I'm probably going to with a pale neutral gray on the walls. It's that or white, because I don't want it making colors look funky-and I don't really want plain white. Then I'll use colorful accents.

    Im a firm believer in the theory that anything that makes you happy is ok, as long as its legal of course. Paint your room pink with purple polka dots if you want. Make it your space and you will be happy in it.
    Quilt outside of the box!
