Is painting a small room ceiling and half walls 1dark color a no, no?

Color is a dark gray granite. Cover for light is black. Wash boards will be stained traditional cherry. Tile floor has brown, blue, granite and some rust colors in it. My plan is to go with metal colors, bronze, copper, pewter, silver etc as decor. Not sure what to do with the door. Please help.

      It really depends on what you want the room to feel like when you are in it. If you want small and cozy, dark colors can give that to you. If the room is flooded with light the dark may not shrink it. Dark colors usually make details fade or blend and become negative space. It is only paint and you should at least give it a go. I am sure you have some picture in your head of how it will look. Worst case - you paint it twice.
