Does the size of the room dictate the colour scheme to be used in interior decoration?
I'm just going to guess because I am not good at interior decoration. If the room is a small room, I think you would want to go with lighter, airier colors to give the illusion of it being larger. If you have a large room and want to make it look warmer or cozier, smaller, and homier...you go with medium to darker hughs. If you like the large room...say, 20x25, vaulted ceilings and lots of light, then neutrals and light hughs would be the ticket. Of course, furnishing add to or take away also. I watch HGTV!! Sometimes I think the color they chose was horrible until they furnished and added drapes/curtains, bookcases, etc. Let me know how I did!
Having done both residential and commercial decorating; I've found color and room size has a definite correlation. Also, how/where color is used in a room can make a huge difference. In a small room that is narrow and long -- using a color that is darker on the wall that is fartherest away can bring that wall visually "in" and make the room seem more balanced and pleasant to the eye. There was a time decorators swore it was blasphemy to paint a very small room a dark color but individual taste and artistic freedom has changed that in recent years. Often, a small room, if painted a very dark color, takes on a whole new dimension if properly furnished and accessorized. Bottom line -- yes, darker colors can visually diminish room size but is not the taboo it once was.
