This is why ceilings are often painted white, making them feel higher. Dark colors draw the walls of a room together, so people rarely paint rooms in very dark shades. If your living room is small, go with lighter shades. On the other hand, if you have a large living room, especially if it feels too big, a darker color can make it feel more homey and intimate.

Just make sure that your room is as clutter-less as possible, so that you really enjoy that extra white space that you have now. You can also add some pictures on the wall with black frames, and the duo-color is complete.’
While a large area allows you to decorate with many colors, it’s best to use similar colors on the walls and furnishings in a small room. With less contrast between the furniture and wall color, the furniture blends into the background and the room appears larger.
