    Paint it a light color, yellow would make it appear to be a sunny room
    and put in lots of lights, fluorescent lights can provide natural bright lights.
    You will still probably need a Ott light where you cut and piece as well.

    Lowe's or any good hardware place offers a ""daylight bulb"" for tube, ceiling and lamp light,,,

    If you have wall space, find some travel posters and place them on the walls. It will give you something to look at that you enjoy as you spend time in your sewing space. I had a room with no windows once and it worked great for me!

    Use a light color (my sewing room is lavender, has one small window) and invest in Ott lights. Expensive but completely worth it. I have two - well technically only one is mine but I stole the second one from my DH. He doesn't mind too much. Love those Ott lights for bright clean lighting.

    Pale yellow is cheerful. When you do the lights, check out what type of bulbs simulate sunlight, and put some in there, too. I assume you'll need to make sure your fabric is away from that type of light (I'd ask questions about that at the lighting store), but it would be worth it. Here in Oregon we get so much rain, and have so many days that are overcast that many suffer from the light deprivation (not me, though).

    I like the Benjamin Moore paint that is a light yellow tint , with Benjamin Moore White chocolate for the trim. Several Large Mirrors , along with a couple of Ott lights.
