Be brave and go for it.
Picking dark shades or tones will make a dramatic difference and can have great results. Trust yourself and your own senses. Be willing to create your own set of rules. Guidelines are intended to make your rules work their best.
Live with your new color(s) for a few days before fleeing back to your previous comfort zone. Remember you picked a particular color because you were drawn to it. Color will create the desired changes you want.
Once the color is on the walls, floors, cabinets or wherever you choose to put it, you may need to make adjustments. The new color may need to be lightened or darkened. Or you may now find that you love the new color(s) just the way they are, but other things may need to be changed. It will become apparent once the new color is place.
Finish what you set out to do...creating a space that you love. If you feel good in your space it will be and is healing. Consult with a professional if need be. He or she will be able to assist you with color complements, balance, contrast and the accessories that fit the feeling you are creating.
