What Houzz contributors are saying:
Once you’ve decided on a dark wall color, consider pairing it with light flooring, which will brighten and balance the space. This might involve installing new flooring or simply rolling out a light-colored rug.If you already have light-colored floors throughout your home, dark walls can up the lushness of the room and ground the space.
2. Obsession With Other People’s HousesAlthough it’s great to find inspiration in a friend’s gorgeous home, it can also cause stress and panic, especially halfway through a project when you wonder if you have it all wrong and everyone else has it right.Symptoms of obsessive interiors disorder include interrupting your friends while they share a personal problem with you to quiz them about where they got their countertop, and which Benjamin Moore shade they used on their cabinets. Or going out to dinner with your other half and spending the whole evening analyzing the light fixtures and dining chairs in the restaurant. .The cure: If your project hasn’t yet begun, obsessing over other people’s houses isn’t in itself a bad thing, as it will help ensure that you’ve thought through your design choices properly and are happy with your decisions.If your project has started, however, remind yourself that there are infinite numbers of ways to decorate and furnish any room. The key is to put together an ideabook of images you love on Houzz before you begin your project. By doing your research, you should be able to get a clear vision of your own style that you can stick to throughout. Have confidence in your own tastes and decisions, and try not to get sidetracked by someone else’s vision.

The room here is open and vast, but the deep blue walls create a snug atmosphere. The sleek lines and light colors of the furniture stand out beautifully in front of such a contrasting shade. Want to up the cozy factor? Consider painting the ceiling the same color.
