    My room combines my two loves, quilting and anything tropical. So my walls are a soft green and the ceiling is a pale yellow, and the valances are a cheery tropical print, green palm fronds and tropical colorful parrots. And it has elvira in it (that's my featherweight)so it's a wonderful place to sew (barefoot).

    I had a soft buttery yellow by Benjamin Moore on the walls of my former quilting room. I loved it. But my present room is just painted off white. I never had time to apply any color before I moved into it. Now I wouldn't dare try! 8-)

    Wow! I'm so impressed with your sewing room. It's so bright, cheery and not a thing out of place!

    I have wood paneling on all the walls and hard wood flooring. It used to be a room two of my boys shared so the paneling at the time was a good choice. I have so much other stuff around that the room is peaceful, but messy. I also have a twin bed on one wall that my closest friend, closer than a sister, sleeps in about once a month when she comes for the weekend.

    My sewing room is soft peach...even the sliding closet doors are the same pale peach. We have soft peach/dusty rose throughout the house. I like it ...very restful. I have 2 windows, one faces west, the other north. I have mini blinds on them, and in the late afternoon I have to close the west facing (where I face sitting at my machine), or I am blinded.

    My sewing room is in the basement--well 1/2 anyway. I have cream berber carpet and the walls are white. They are only 2 small windows about 12 x 24 inches and they are at ground level on one side. My walls are covered with white bookshelves and either sewing/quilting signs, my special Elvis pictures, dolls, bears,and mini quilts. It is my sanctuary. I have TV, cable, vcr and dvd plus a record player/cd combo. It is the coolest place in the summer but can get a little chilly in the winter, so I have an oil filled space heater. I just wish I could spend more time down there.

    My room is two steps down from the kitchen, so that I can nip in and out when I am supposed to be cooking. It is painted a beautiful light mint green with white trim and has a large window at front and sliding glass doors on two walls opening to the garden, laminated wood flooring, two chintz armchairs, TV/DVD, air conditioner for really hot days but beautifully sunny and warm in winter. When I close up the sewing cabinet and tidy up it becomes a little refuge for the two of us for reading, watching TV, coffee drinking - very cosy. It is the favourite room for both of us.

    White walls. It had a really strong blue-purple when we moved in, and I really liked the color, but I realized it would interfere with my designing. I don't want any "extraneous" colors influencing me when I'm working on a quilt, plus the colors of the walls change the color of the light, which also affects how you see the color of the fabric you're working with.

    I also have hardwood floors, with a small rug under my sewing table for my feet, and to collect thread and tiny fabric scraps :-D

    Wow The Quilted Dove, I love your wall racks, is that fabric backing or batting? What a neat idea, I wish I had a basement or separate room to use for quilting, but we don't have basements our here.

    I have light purple walls with mauve carpeting and love it since it's my favorite color and so inviting to me.

    Here's my little piece of peace ... still sorting and tidying ... should be sewing! Luv all my little knick knacks - some very special ones on the shelf ... what colour are the walls (bit hard to see from all the stuff on them :) but it is a cream shade with brick feature walls - needed to be light to contrast with brick ... timber laminate floors which are fantastic! easy to pick up threads from - just got a mat at my cutting table - made with strips gathered by my ruffler and sewn to ticking background - very soft underfoot and fully washable!

    We are just finishing up repainting my room. It's a nice soft green on two walls and biege on the other two. Love the color, but haven't worked in ther yet, Can't wait to get moved back in, stuff if everywhere right now. Green is supposed to be calming I heard.

    Mine's a warm buttery cream colour - very restful and yet bright. I have carpet on the floor - would recommend you go for the laminate or wood.
