    I painted my ceilings and wall in stead of having a blown (popcorn)ceiling I finished it smooth. THe walls are dark blue and carpet is a blue also and seating is black the baseboard is trimmed in white. It works for me and the dark walls reflect no light so i love it. Check out my gallery.

    Darker is better.
    Gloss = Bad
    Semi-Gloss = Bad
    Eggshell or Satin = Okay
    Flat = Best, but harder to clean

    My colors:
    Ceiling-Dark Grey Accoustic Foam
    Upper half of walls - A dark magenta, satin
    Divider between upper and lower half of walls - Purple accoustic foam
    Lower half of walls - Dark "plum", satin
    Trim - "Midnight purple" one shade away from black
    Carpet - Commercial black carpet with little neon geometric shapes and squigles in it.

    A designer would tell you that you should probably consider the room as a whole before selecting any colors.

    Flat latex is a given but you really need a handle on your furniture selectionfabric, curtain colors, and what your speaker cabinets do to compliment or detract from these.

    If you have a significant other, this can get even more complicated because most women would not understand your need to paint the walls black or other variations of dark tones.

    I would use the furniture as a guide to color selection for the rest of the applications of your room. That includes the speakers.
