chocolate? on my walls?

Y'all.
 I don't know what it is with our foyer but we just can't quite get it right. 
Well, I mean, I got it right with this gorgeous green a few months back....


after of course this decision that was fun for about 2 months and then just messy...


But still, the husband isn't satisfied. Apparently he has an aversion to beautiful shades of green. 
So I'm willing to compromise. The man would live in a cave if he could- surrounded by dark leather furniture and fleece blankets. So I'm thinking daaaarrrk chocolate. 


I would definitely do a high gloss or even lacquered. 
What do y'all think? Should we just make him live with the (gorgeous) green? 
Or should we get moody with some chocolate?
