Considering... Painting a Different Color Below the Chair Rail

I really like the paint colors we chose for the living room and dining room.  And I really like the paint colors we chose for the bedroom and bathroom.  But lately I've been thinking how some new paint colors just a little more cohesion... and maybe even more impact.  So I'm considering painting the wall beneath the chair rail with the same dark paint (Valspar's Rugged Suede) that we used on our bedroom accent wall and bathroom. 

I did some Googling and found a few images to prove (to myself) that I'm not crazy.

I might be pulling out the paint soon.  Our high ceilings make this look much easier to pull off. The color won't be nearly this dark (although I love it).


If you have a vote, chime in with a comment!  Do you like the dramatic flair of a darker paint underneath the chair rail? Or is monochromatic more your look?
