For the past 2 years my sewing room was actually in the formal living room with the fire place. The kids toy room is the formal dining room that attaches to the formal living room. The problem with this was there wasn't really a defined line of 'mine' and 'theirs' so curious little fingers messed with my machines and fabric almost daily. Also, it was the first room that you see when you walk into the house. I really felt like it made our house not so homey walking into a craft room/office. So, a few months ago we switched me to the informal living room that is leads to the back yard. This takes me away from the kids toys and away from the front door. Now you enter our house and see a room with a couch, tv, and shoes. It's so much more relaxing.
Along with this move, we also painted the walls a color other than white. I can't explain how much of a difference this makes! It is so calming and pleasant!
