Room without a window, paint + lighting question?

I am being forced to move my room into the basement of my house. My room does not have a window in it at all. Not even a small one. I wanted to paint my walls a dark colour like burgundy and maybe a gray accent wall but would that just make it look smaller and give me horrible lighting all the time? I don't really like bright colours for walls! HELP please!

    Because there is not external light available to the space, an increase in the room lighting will be required. The colors presented in your question would darken the space, and absorb the electrical lighting being used. Choose a high gloss paint for walls, ceiling and trim.

    Instead consider going with a mainstream red, and using a ice grey for accent panels behind the areas with electric lamps and for the overall ceiling. This will reflect the limited available light and make the room seem comfortable and cozy instead of tight and choking. One or more mirrors could be placed to also enhance the light playing around the area, but suggest caution not to overload the space with exact reflective surfaces.
