Dark Walls, Light Space

Committing to blacks walls in any space can be a bit scary. If paired with dark ceilings and floors, you may feel as if your walls are crowding in on you. But when balanced with a light colored floor and ceiling, the black walls recede making the space feel more expansive. Does this alternative make you more comfortable with the idea of black walls?If you were to take the leap into ebony bliss, would you go all out with the black paint or would you stick to the walls only leaving ceilings and floors in lighter hues?
