I had seen a few examples of dark color in a small space, and decided it was a risk I was willing to take. I am so glad I did! The color makes the walls fade away, and because I used this dark color in my boy's room, I find that the bright colors of their toys and accessories pop next to the walls.
Colors used in my room:
Benjamin Moore Dark Pewter
Tips for using color successfully:
Don't be afraid to go dark in a small space. Dark colors make the walls recede, and can feel elegant in a small room.
