    If you have a designated room for quilting what color are your walls? I'm in the process of re=doing my room mostly because of the flooring. I have carpet in there now and want to go to hardwood or laminate. And I thought that before we do the floor, I will repaint. What color do you love for your room?

    My room used to be a light blue but felt cold and I hated going in there to do my craft work or anything. I repainted it a muted yellow, not a real bright yellow, but a lovely warm yellow. I now love being in there (unless it's too cluttered lol).
    I still have carpet in my room but would love wooden floors.

    Have fun choosing. A 'new' room is wonderful!

    My sewing room. Hope is shows the color well.

    Eww, I love your room, Quiltingranny! So restful. I love yellow but the room faces the south and even with one window I've heard to avoid yellow. But I really, really like the color you've chosen.

    I do have blinds that I lower when the sun hits that room. It faces a bit southwest (more west than south) so the sun hits pretty hard in the afternoon.

    My whole house is done in beige, laminate floors. I am so tired of beige. I painted my sewing room turquoise! White trim. When you go in there, you know it is different, you do not have to wonder.

    I am in the process of cleaning and organizing due to new storage options, will post pics when done.

    My room is "spring green" it has a very creative feel to it, its the one room in the house that is mine and I didnt want it to be traditional like the rest of the house.All the accents & shelving are in white.

    I have a lovely basement woodgrain paneling from the 70's. My goal is to cover it with my design board 7' x 4' and pegboard to hold my sewing tools which will all be white. Then the rest of the ugly stuff I will cover with quilts. My husband offered to paint it white but I knew that is a project that would have delayed moving into the room for months....I didn't want to wait!

    My room has no windows, so I painted it a really soft yellow. I have carpet & now wish I had wood... It would be so much easier to swifter all those threads lol But it's a basement & the floor was uneven - it would have been way too much work to try to level it :)

    My room is soft lavender, or is that lilac? Purple shades are supposed to promote creativity :)

    My room is a soft green, including the ceiling, I love it. Looked to post a picture but the walls look white in all the pictures.

    Aw, your room is so nice! I dont have a sewing room yet, but when I do, it will be pink or purple. Something pastel, but cheerful! I would want HW floors too, but all our upstairs rooms are carpet too, and too expensive to replace!

    When I had my sewing room it was a light wood grain paneling. I gave it up so my girls could have their on room. when I get it back I'm thinking of a light lavender or a mint green. It is a soft color and pleasing to the eye.

    QuiltingGrannie and Dove- your rooms are beautiful. Both lovely shades of yellow :) My sewing room is a soft white- I really like it.
    I am such a wimp with paint colors- I've had some bad experiences :D:D:D

    WOW, Dove your space (bigger than a room)is to die for. Your walls look to be about the same color as quiltingranny's. I love the brightness! And the lighting you have is great. Thanks for the pics.

    My room has two hotpink walls. They are the ones I face the most when sewing because it makes me happy! I left two walls white where my design board is and what you can see from the hall. When I tell people about my pink walls they think I am crazy, but when they see it they like it.

    My room has wallpaper, since we just bought the house recently, not crazy about the wallpaper, but I can hang alot of things on the wall. No one notices the holes then. It also has carpet, dislike the carpet totally! I think it is much nicer to design your own quilting room than to buy one. It is what it is. Happy to have a quilting room!

    Smart idea to get rid of the carpet before you make it your sewing room. That's the one thing I don't like about my room - the carpet, but it's so full of stuff there's no way I could get DH to move it all out and put down wood or laminate. My room faces southeast and it is painted yellow, with a blue and yellow border around the top. I absolutely love it. It's bright and cheery. Don't have a picture at the moment, but if I get a chance later today, I will take one.

    DH just painted the house. He says mine are Coastal Plains (green). I've been in it since we painted, but couldn't remember which color ended up in there. I do remember that I liked it way better than the white that was in there.

    My sewing room is painted a light yellow with the trim painted ivory. I stenciled daisies and vines near the doors. The floor is gray laminate.

    Thequilteddove: I realllly like your sewing room. I like the feel of being in a basement with no windows. Mirrors can work wonders with the 'feel' of no windows. I love how you do it and am trying not to be envious of the racks on the wall you have your batting in. So much space. I love that for you.
    Sandyl, good luck on your choice. I will be excited to see it when you are all done.
    Quiltinggrannie: Your room looks very nice. Almost too nice to clutter with sewing or crafts. Very pretty.
