Sounds like you have a very neutral space so far. You have lots of options opened. How about a grayed down blue? Very updated look.

I have an old craftsman with very dark box beam ceilings and trim. Several windows but not a lot of light. I just painted the walls (all 4) BenMoore Marine Blue...now I'm stumped with what to do with adjacent rooms which open to the dark blue room. Any ideas? I feel like I need to lighten things up... Thanks so much!

Below is Sherwin William’s Arts & Crafts colors with suggested accents (other paint companies might have other chip suggestions?). I like to have my whole house color-cohesive. Let’s say in the living room I chose a dark blue for all 4 walls. According to SW’s A&C palette, Bunglehouse Blue pairs nicely with Indian white and Classic Light Buff or in another chip they pair Bunglehouse Blue with Antiquarian Brown (looks rust-like) and White Hyacinth. So, taking my cue from that, I’d paint adjacent rooms in one of the whites or Light Buff. And in each room I’d have accents of dark blue, white, Buff, and Rust. http://www.sherwin-williams.com/pdf/color_themes/int_arts.pdf

Thank you so much for the great advice! I was thinking along the lines of white but was stumped regarding another color. Great ideas....I will have to post pictures once it's finished. Thanks again for the help! Much appreciated!

Did anyone get an answer to where this slipcovered chair came from? I need a chair this size and shape for a small corner space. This looks like it would be perfect.

I'm not sure on that exact light, but this one is similar:

A way to search for these kinds of lights is "library light" or "art light"

They could be twill, wool, canvas, heavy linen.etc. Lining gives any fabric more weight so that it can hang nicely.

Start by looking at Ben Moore's Soot/2129-20. In art classes, we were always told to put some blue in our black, for depth. It works well.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Nancy Cost added this to Painting Rooms with Dark Colors
By now you won't be surprised to hear me say I'd love to see a bit of color in the artwork there in that cozy corner.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Fashioning Interiors Part 1: How to Turn Your Home Into a Supermodel
Many people are hesitant to paint a room black, but stark white trim, drapery and neighboring room create a pleasing contrast here.
Here, the trim and the dark panels provide two ends of a color palette spectrum—many elements in the room pick up the colors that are in between the two, with a few others thrown in the mix. This is also a great example of how to make the dark walls work with adjacent rooms, as I mentioned in the introduction.
Beth Dotolo, ASID, RID, NCIDQ added this to Your Guide to Stylish Slipcovers
Slipcover pros: 1. Protection. You can use a slipcover to protect a beautiful piece of furniture you want to preserve. Here, a striped slipcover protects a chair in the corner of this casual room. 2. Easy cleaning. Slipcovers can be easily removed for laundering. How many times have you just wished you could throw your sofa in the washing machine? 3. Versatility. You don't have to commit! You can change the look of your space with the change of a slipcover. Many people will purchase two slipcovers in different colors or textures to change out their look with the seasons.
You can't get much more high-contrast than black and white. I especially like how the dark (albeit light-filled) room leads into an all-white room. The walls, ceilings and trim appear to be painted all the same color in the adjacent room, making the black even more special and unexpected without being overwhelming.
Black walls are a bold yet refined move for living areas too — not just coupled with white tiles in the bathroom. Black walls, white trim, white furniture and just a touch of color in accent furniture pieces (such as the red side table) are well balanced and feel comfortable.
Cate West Zahl added this to Accessories 101: Staffordshire Dogs
The red and white Staffordshire dogs are a surprise element to this room. By placing them underneath the red lacquered table, the designers may be referencing a style without putting it fully on display. The room remains contemporary, with a secret addition of Victorian glamour underneath the coffee table.
Samantha Schoech added this to Get a Knack for Black
White trim makes black walls look crisp and fresh. It's a very classic look and would work in a house with some good bones. When painting a wall black, go for an eggshell or satin finish to avoid an ashy look.
Samantha Schoech added this to How to Bring Yankee Style to a Home Anywhere
Traditional furnishings (nothing flashy or trendy, please) against a black wall. The look is elegant but understated.
