@MrsGatito:  First, oh my gosh, I love the room in the photo! Can I have that please? 🙂  Second, I don’t think that 3 walls in the grey will be too dark but I almost worry if the 3:1 might make the room look off-balance.   But I’m certainly not a pro at this stuff!

If the room is smaller I’d probably do a lighter color on 3 and have the dark wall be the accent.

@MrsGatito:  I think it’s worth a shot! You’re right that the 2:2 might be a bit odd as well.  I say, try the 3:1 and take photos! 🙂 I want to see – my husband and I have been talking about updating paint colors in our house for months now.

I’ve never seen a light accent wall, they always seem to be dark.  That being said, I like the idea of light paint around the window because it will really brighten the room up.  Go for it!  And post pictures when you’re done 🙂  That’s a gorgeous inspiration photo!  So serene 🙂

If you’re worried about it being too dark (which is definitely possible in a smaller room), use the light color on the three walls and the dark color as the accent. It’ll still give you the pop and interest you’re going for, but it won’t feel closed in.

our bedroom is painted a dark teal but honestly I do not mind it being dark.  It’s a bedroom so we are in there to sleep and relax.  The dark color is restful and cozy.  And as long as you have healthy doses of light colored things in the room, it will balance.  For instance, the room pictured has a very large white ceiling (as does ours).  That helps a lot.  As does light colored bedding.  All of our bedding is white and we have large black and white prints with white mats on the walls plus a large mirror to keep it from being too dark.  Anyway, the point I am trying to make is that even with four walls being a dark color, it doesn’t mean that it will be too dark.
