Dark on the walls these days translates into chic and stylized. There is still that age old question- does it really make the room look smaller or actually larger, expanding the walls into infinity?
Best use of dark in two different ways: love the tone-on-tone print (whether a stencil or wallpaper) and the matte Venetian plaster.

Like texture? How fun to have hide tiles on the wall!
Lacquered walls seem to look most impressive on dark walls, in this case subtly striaed.
What a beautiful room to end this post- so elegant.
