In the photo you reference our goal was to achieve a bright fun space. For brightness we chose white as our dominant color and used it for the cabinets, trim, subway tile and ceiling. To add a little fun we used a 24"x24"terrazzo floor tile that has tiny specks of colors. The honeymoon color was then used as an accent to create contrast/interest and a touch of warmth.

Whether or not the honeymoon would help brighten your den in the same manner is difficult to say. We achieved our results through a mixture of finishes and our room has natural light coming from all 4 directions. As with all our homes we do several paint tests (draw-downs) to find the right color(s) and view it both during the day and at night under artificial light. This is something you might consider doing as well to achieve your goals.

I hope this helps!
