Painting my sewing room. Need help with color,

February 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My sewing room is in a room just off of my husband's newly re-done "man cave". (It's the entire downstairs family and kitchen. He did it in stone and grey.) There is a double door that closes it (my sewing room) off from the rest of the area. I removed the wallpaper and now need to paint. I guess I should try to be somewhat compliant with the grey but I can't stand the thought of a grey sewing room. The cabinets are white and, of course the new carpet is grey. What would be a good choice for color on the walls. I was thinking a shade of yellow. Thoughts, anyone?

Peggy, I don't feel like you need to go with grey at all! Its such a neutral color that both your husband's cave,carpet and white cabinets allow wonderful possibilities.

Gray is a neutral so you can select virtually any color. Do a houzz search of "sewing rooms" for a rainbow of inspiration.

You have a lot of color choices that would go with the gray. I would do with a color that makes you feel calm and happy. So when things get stressful whist sewing the color on the wall can help keep you calm. Go look at paint chips and even buy some test paint colors and test it out on the wall and see what you like the best.

I would do something fun. I think it's one of the only places it won't look absurd other than a kids room to have bright colors. I love bright colors :)
