    I agree. Light green is the color of my room now. It faces the north east and even on a hot day, it still seems cool. Good luck.

    I painted mine a slightly off shade of white - sort of between white and ecru. The quilts on the wall really stand out. I used semi-gloss and it always seems to shine new

    I have 2 sewing rooms. One for sewing the other is more my craft room/storage.

    My sewing room is Pepto Bismol Pink, was suppose to be Mauve (which it kinda is) But it works for a sewing room.

    My Craft/Storage/Computer room is plaster, we stripped the walpaper and never painted it. Some day I'll clean it out.

    I love both room, but wish they were ONE. Someday I'll post pictures.

    My walls are painted cream with wallpaper on lower half but there isn't very much wall space.

    One wall is all window, another is doorway and cupboards with design wall hanging in front. What walls are left are covered by desk and cutting/painting table and my paintings.

    My sewing room is in the basement, so I opted for white walls with blue carpeting. No windows, boo!!! But the white walls make up for it and the lighting is important. Carpeting, well, if it were not in the basement, I would have put in hardwood flooring. The berber carpeting is not so bad, although I am on my 3rd vacuum cleaner for the basement!

    my sewing room is a small corner of the living room that I have taken over because I was tired of pulling the sewing machine in and out of the box and closet every time I wanted to sew. It is painted a lovey Tuscan creamy yellow with this textured venetian plaster. Well all the walls except for the walls around the fire place they are paneling and have to be replaced before we can finish the venetian plaster look. It is all really cool and warm. just need to get a fan in here to help circulate the air because of the vaulted ceiling.

    I painted the top pale yellow and the bottom deep red. There was already a chair rail. Then I added some sunflowers on top of the armoire. I have a laminated floor and love it. My room is only 9' x 9' and faces north with one window. I enjoy sewing here and find the colors enjoyable. :-P

    HI, Just got my sewing room painted. It is a soft yellow and I am very happy with it. I also used to have carpeting in my sewing room which was once a bedroom for the grand kids, whom are ll grown up now. But any way my DH put in laminate floor for me and you can really scoot around fast with your chair thats for sure, I had to put a plastic rug protector under my chair at the machine because when I pushed on the pedal to sew my chair would slide back.
    Good luck with you color choice.

    My sewing room is in the basement and I don't have a large window so I wanted my room painted yellow. It's not bright in fact it looks like the same color as "thequilteddove's" yellow room. It's cheery and really makes me want to spend time there. Where I have my longarm used to be the room where the pool table was so it's painted a light grey which is still ok because it is a bright room when my lights are all turned on and I get cheery color from the quilts I have hanging all around.

    My DD's old bedroom has become my sewing room. Don't laugh..LOL.. BUT 2 walls are white & 2 walls are black. The slant side ceiling on the 1 side has black & white checkered contact paper. NEVER look up!!! She also but a trim of white & black diamonds around the 3 other side walls. I made sheer black curtains for her. It has grown on me, but as I said... 'I never look up' as the checkered side makes you a bit woozy.
    With 11 surgeries in the last 10 years, I have yet to repaint it..but will get there. Thinking about a springy pale green..transquility for me all the way. I have the 'old' style of hardwood floors, so thinking maybe a little darker green for that. Maybe IF I get creative, I might put a design in the middle of the floor instead of a small area rug.
    Just waiting for doc's approval to more on now.

    My sewing room/office is a mixture that our builder came up with. I guess never to be duplicated. It is beige, but has different hues when the sun hits it. But I like it and has a warm feeling. I don't have a lot of wall space because we had 2 large windows put in so I have great natural light. Our main living area has wood floors, but we decided that a wood floor would take a beating with the way I like to move things around.

    We chose a soft vinyl flooring (light gray/blue) with a little cushion in it. My feet love it when I am standing up for cutting. It cleans up great.

    We have hardwood in our kitchen and the dogs nails make marks. I'm thinking the chair scooting across hardwood in my room would be tracked with the chair rollers. Opinions?

    Last year we bought a foreclosure house that had been empty. We had it completely remodeled & the whole house inside is painted a light cream color except for the big family room which has paneling. I like the cream color, it is warm, yet light. I have a daybed in my sewing room so it can be used as a spare bedroom. Would like a larger room but am glad to have a room at all. I can always use the kitchen table or one of the beds or the floor to lay out my quilts.

    I have a soft lavender on my walls. Only one window that doesn't get much light. I do have carpeting in my sewing room but wish that it was something else so that it was easier to clean up.

    I have like a light tan. Sorry no picture at this time. I have an area rug and tile. Unfortunately it seems that all of the rooms have something of my sewing room in them. I need a whole new area to store my stash

    My sewing studio is painted a very pale aqua. My favorite color in my favorite room! The ceiling is the same, but the wood trim and cabinets are white. I have carpet and love it, since pins stick in it with the point down!

    Yes, it will leave marks. That is why I put vinyl flooring in my room. As an example, I was having to use a walker in March, due to knee replacement surgery. What that did to our wood floors amazed me. Luckly we have a good coating and we have finally got rid of the marks. I love our wood floors, but I didn't think it would work well for me in my sewing room. I don't want to have to be that careful.

    My room is in the basement but it has two 4X4 windows in it. Which means really deep window wells. When I look out all I see is the ugly metal from the sides of the well and gravel and weeds in the bottom :( The windows face south so I do get some light.

    My walls are a light mauve and I have a wallpaper border with hummingbirds on it. The carpet is a dark brown, wish I could have bamboo flooring but that will never happen!

    Right now my room is almost unusable because my daughter and her husband moved back in and every room in the house is full of their stuff!! And soon it will be baby stuff when she has her baby!

    My walls are plain white, but they are covered by hanging quilts and thread racks.

    if the wood grain isnt broken you can take a dap cloth and heat it with your iron to raise the wood grain and remove the marks

    Been thinking what to paint mine. I was leaning toward a green shade or shade of yellow.

    My room is a soft pink, but I am thinking of changing it to a dark taupe. The floor is vinyl.
