This is the first time I've commented, and it's because I'm bothered by some of the comments ripping on the narrative. The writer was describing how HE feels his space when HE is in it. 'It avoid cliche and trendiness' Yes, it does, since you're not using the color in a particularly cliched or trendy design manner. 'it absorbs some of the clutter'. Yep, I understand what you're saying. The dark background helps anchor the mess and makes it look like less of a free for all. Kinda reminds me of a wall covered in tools and bits and bobs in the garage of a man whose hands get dirty. I like it. As far as it being dark and a light being on, well you can see the blinds are closed, probably for the photography. As far as the color being 'solid', it sure is, far more than say an airy blue or pale green, colors you could paint on a piece of glass and have the sun shine right through. Finally, who cares if the other three walls aren't visible? This isn't an apartment tour.
