Why does every room have to be "opened up"

What's wrong with cozy rooms? Why does everyone suggest we paint any less than huge room a light color to "open it up"? I say go by the color you LIKE not what's going to mentally add a few inches.

My room is tiny and it's painted brown. I know if some people saw it or heard that I wanted a brown room, they would have said nooooo you need to open it up! No, I do not. It's fine the size it is.

This is the color

With something similar to this(mine has elephants and giraffes on it)


And ya know what, it's tiny and looks damn good!

I like bold colors. And every room in my house is a different bold color.

I hate rooms that are painted dark colors unless its an accent wall. I hate clutter and I hate feeling closed in and that's what small rooms with dark colors remind me of lol

Every thing but my ds' room is white. I hate it but dh and I can't decide on a color for any room. So it stays white until then.

 I can't do dark colors because it does make the room look smaller then it actually is. To me it doesn't say "cozy" it says cramped and cluttered. If you like it, go with it.
