HELP! Need inspiration...

Please, please, pretty please can you guys share some pics or links of prim/country sewing rooms? I need some inspiration on how to do mine. I know the feeling I want, I just don't know how to obtain it. Hubby and the kids removed two of the massive shelving units and put them in the basement for me, so I have much more room now. We packed up all my wool and the majority of my fabric and will store it in the basement for the time being. I won't have time to rug hook or sew tons once the baby comes, so I'm just looking to cozy up and simplify my sewing room. Just a place to escape to for an hour or so a day and whip up little projects and have a quaint spot to sit for a bit. I want it to be homey and prim, but I don't know what colors to do. Should I stencil, should I paint? The trim work is all white(like the rest of the house), and it feels so cold. Also the one large bead board wall is white, so I'm thinking about leaving the walls the tan color they are and just painting the trim work and bead board. But what color? I really just need to see some good pics. Thank you for your help.



  1. If you go to this link she has the most amazing sewing will have to go back a little ways but it is worth it...I LOVE it...I wish I had it myself. i have been enjoying your blog. Blessings, Dianntha

  2. There's a wonderful book and website now too I think called "Where Women Create" it has tons of beautiful sewing/craft rooms. I can picture a simple room done in old fashioned sewing notions and ads. Many colors work well with tan, like a prim blue, red or sage green. What ever you choose, it will be perfect and I can't wait to see it!

  3. Thanks ladies. I went to Ace this morning and bought two different colors of Old Village paints, a mustard and a blue. I'm currently painting the white beadboard wall the blue(which is called Heritage blue and is more of a gray blue, not sure about it yet, maybe I should have went with a darker one) and the mustard color will be going on the dresser that I just painted green a few posts ago. The colors in the room are going to be to be blue, red, and mustard(which is more of a light golden brown). At least I have a color scheme now :) I'll keep you updated.

  4. But the green had looked so good on the dresser. Oh well that is the beauty of paint. I can't wait to see the room when finished. By the way, I have mentioned you in my end of year blogging recap. Please stop by to see. Thank you for introducing me to the wonderful world of blogging. Happy New Year.
