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.
