you have a large enough room with a lot of light and it woudl really set off your furniture and furnishings so I think it would look lovely. I would hope you could paint the trim a cream instead of white long term though!

Try it in the niche behind the TV. Also on large poster boards around the space so you can see how it changes with the light. If it is too dark, at least you got an accent wall with it. If you have a separate dining room with lots of light, that might be another place to use it first. It makes for an intimate dining space and enhances appetite due to its red base. You're not dieting, are you?
