    What color is your sewing room?

    What color is your sewing room? Or what color do you wish it was?

    I am in the midst of taking over my son's room. I have just primed the wall that was painted with a camouflage pattern. My sis painted it for our son when we moved in - he loved everything camo at the time. She hid names in the camo, so I was a little sentimental about painting over it, but after the big desk got moved out, it had to go! Here is what the camo wall looked like:

    The rest of the room is a beige. I think I am going to paint the whole room, but looking for ideas on color.

    I painted mine a muted blue, can't remember the name but its from Restoration Hardware. I got the paint chip & had Lowes match it. Saved me about $20 per gallon. Love the things at Restoration Hardware but they are way overpriced..
    The floor is engineered hardwood, my sewing table is our old computer desk. Works pretty well, extra wide & 2 cubbies below to hold my extra machine & all my threads and such..

          I think sewing rooms should either be pure white or a bold color like turquoise or or leaf green or even watermelon. I think creative spaces look great in really happy, saturated colors. But I also love the look of a pristine white studio.

              Mine room is orange. It makes me happy every time I go in there.


              Ilive2craft2 can you find your son's name in the camo, not paint over that spot and maybe put a picture frame around it?

                Mine is a spa aqua color. I have very little natural light so I wanted a color that reflects light. It works great for me.

                  Already finished priming it. I took pics instead - he thought I was being silly! I think it was more that both of his grandpa's names were in it as well, but we have the memories!

                    When I was looking at painting my room, my DD suggested Grey. She was working in the paint department at HD. She said that Grey doesn't absorb the color, and I would be able to see the colors. She was so right. I wasnt real sure but trusted her and I love it.

                      Mine's beige. Took over daughter's room that had an Asian theme. Need to paint the walls some day. Guess I don't notice since I am looking down at my sewing all the time! LOL.

                        Mine is yucky. Old wood paneling and primed sheetrock. It's the only room in the house we didn't finish remodeling. Now that all my sewing furniture is in there I don't want to move it out to finish. Someday. I would like a soft grey.

                            The area that I am sewing in is white. That color or one that would not mess with the colors of the fabric is what I would want for a sewing room.
