Well I had to compromise with my wife, I wanted as dark as poss without being depressing and dull, she is a purple lover so we went for this

Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Matt Emulsion Plummy Accent 2.5L, 5011583020861

It is dark but has a quality stylish colour to it :smashin:

For the ceiling we went for this

Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Matt Emulsion Pearly Queen 2.5L, 5011583020854

It goes completely black during films and although my wife wasn't keen at first, when we watched a film for the first time with this decor she realised just how much of a difference it made to the involvement :thumbsup:

It is about compromise and in general greys, blacks and darker colours are best. Greys do sound boring but remember you can lift the room with bright colour pictures, cushions or ornaments.
