In the 2 or 3 houses where I saw it, it was in the living room and the living room/dining room areas.
Like I said, it looks nice. But I guess if I was going to do it, I would go more than just a couple shades darker. Only because the look of the paint on the walls changes throughout the day and evening anyway. The paint near the corner of a wall will sometimes look darker than it does in the center.
You could buy a quart of each color and try it where two walls come together. I would do a large area to really get an idea of whether I like it or not. If you like one but not the other, take it back to the paint store and have it darkened or lightened.
I had a good color picked out already for the TV too. Lol.....
The windows have white faux blinds. I just closed on the house & want to paint whatever I need to before I start moving things in. I'm not talking about the wall with the fireplace. I'm thinking of the big wall that is plain so far. That is where my TV is going.
