This is not a rare occurrence and as flattering as it is to be asked, giving advice for a space you usually have not seen is at best tricky.
Hence, this column:
I will post general advice in answer to non site-specific questions I have been asked.
You may participate, of course.
That would be so much fun.
Just keep it relatively general, if you could.
LES MURS SOMBRES
Libby: I have a small dark room (one window) and I would like to use it as a library/mediaroom/guest room. what do you suggest?
I suggest that you keep your dark room just that: a dark room. I suggest that you make it even MORE dark. It will be perfect for watching movies, sleeping and reading a book in a Zen environment.
Dark walls with shots of light or bright color keep the room "alive".
Dark walls with deep hued accesories and furniture make the mood more tranquil.
sorry source unknown to me
and if you are not at all shy, and in the mood for drama and mystery
Go for broke.
Go for black.
