This is some pretty good info that may help.

If the room is really tiny,painting a whole room in a darker color can either close it in (if there’s little natural light), or turn it into something pretty great. I guess it depends on how much of a risk you’re willing to take. The problem can lie with the largest pieces of furniture in the room. You never want it all to blend in, but can break up large expanses of color with accents like lighting,pillows,pictures,etc

I also feel that way about accent walls. Many people don’t get them, and I find them distracting ,especially in small rooms. Hope you find a color you like and love the results. Good luck!

Do you have any other pictures of the whole room from a distance? Where are the walls and the windows?

Look at these pictures! Almost what you have and can give you some ideas.

It’s great to have vision, but it always helps to have visuals too.

shades of green would go well and bring in a bright large feeling while providing color.  Like the key lime below? and then in the other rooms other colors that have the same saturation of color. Or different shades of the same color in different rooms, like the water sprout and celery ice in the bedrooms.

Dark colours make spaces seem visually smaller. So if the space is already small, be prepared for the illusion of less space with a dark colour.
