  Okay my son wants his room done in different shades of black. He is really interested in crime scene investigations. He wants like a crime scene and lab mural done on his walls He also wants the walls of the crime scence to be blacks so it will look like night

 I tried explaining grays would work better but he insists on blacks. Any home decorators I would appericate any color recomendations so they are not too black. KWIM Thanks

How about gray walls and an accent wall with black chalkboard paint? That way he can change up his lab & crime scene.

I would try to get him to paint one wall with chalk board paint and then have him draw scenes on it with white chalk to lighten the room some.  Also tell him ok but a white ceiling.
