    I am not a fan of yellow either, but a nice pale, buttery yellow looks good. Yellow and purples are both suppose to get the creative juices flowing. When my room is ready to paint, I think I will do the wall in pale yellow and the shelves and trim in light lavender. My room doesn't have lots of natural light (4 small window, one covered by trees) so I want a bright sunny looking room. Of course once I get the window washed, they will let in more light. right now we are having a blizzard so can only wash the inside of window.

    that sounds like the color of my room. I agree about hardly any smell with Sherwin Williams paint. it's a soft restful color and love the look of the afternoon sun as it comes in the windows.

    I guess I am boring, all of my walls are white.

    My walls are just plain old paneling but most are covered with bookcases anyway.

    I would choose a color that you love - Keep it pastel - nice shade of off white or gray

    Mine is also a light yellow. My sewing room is in the basement and I wanted a "sunshine" effect even though it's a pale yellow. Makes me want to sew more!!
