Evolution of a Sewing Room - Part 4

The baseboards and the trim around the windows and doors were installed today.  I love how it finishes everything off so nicely. 






In the comments to a previous post, I was asked about the colour of paint used in the this room.  The walls are Pale Wheat from Behr's Premium Plus Ultra line. The trim will be Polar Bear from Behr's Premium Plus line (however, what you are seeing right now in these pics is just primed MDF).  Below are the cropped screen shots of the two colours I snagged off of Behr's website (which is fun to play with BTW).


Pale Wheat was an obvious choice for me.  It is so pretty - it reminds me of cashmere.  I wanted something neutral on the walls so that it wouldn't compete with my fabric.  I like a quiet colour in an area where I create - I find a soothing, pale colour allows me to work with my fabrics without colour overload from the room.  I have richer shades in other rooms in the house (I'll have to take you all on a virtual tour once we are settled in), so those rooms satisfy my need for saturated colour and I am content to keep it subtle in the sewing studio.

The woodwork looks great. It is so much nicer than bare-minimum-builders-grade stuff.
It is exciting to see your space coming together.

I just love that floor. I can't wait to hear your "wearability" report!

I agree on the very neutral wall colors, too.

I can't believe how quickly your house is coming together - you must be happy with the progress. Of course my only comparison point is the crummy builders we used that took forever to do our house remodel! Can't wait to see how you lay out all your tables and other furniture

A tour would be nice :)

I think the colours are perfect for you. They won't clash at all with your "colours". Also looking forward to the virtual tour :)

Oh you are so lucky to have a sewing room as my stuff takes over the dining room. A pin with your dinner anyone?

I have crazy paint colors in every room of my house except the sewing room--I agree that it needs a neutral so as not to compete with the fabric!

You are so fortunate. I can't wait to see the creativity that comes out of this room. Our next home has one major requirement for me - a sewing room!
