Dark LR Advice
As many of you know by now, I love chocolate brown. Right now, I've got BM White Sand on my LR walls, and I do not like it. The LR is a winter living room, Colonial in style, and the porch becomes the LR in warm weather.
I want to paint the LR a brown. The trim and doors are BM White Dove. LR is east facing, so it doesn't get any direct sunlight, and is much lighter first thing in the morning than the rest of the day.
No wall has a lot of wall space due to the windows, wood trim, fireplace, paintings, mirror, etc., which is the only reason I dare try a dark brown.
My worry, though, is the low pine ceiling. I want the room to be cozy, a great place to curl up by a fire with a book or to watch TV during a snowstorm/cold winter nights (and days), but will the pine ceiling cause a dark color to transcend cozy and move into cave-y or creepy?
I can't find any pics of low pine ceilings in rooms with dark walls.
What do you all think? I'll post two pics of the LR.
