Q: Should you only use brightly colored paints in contained spaces?

I have read that you should only use bright colors in contained spaces, such as a dining room that has doorways. This is supposed to keep the bright colors from becoming overwhelming. My wife and I do like these vivid, rich colors that are currently in vogue; however, I have been in some friends houses where the colors begin to feel oppressive. Is this a good tip? Do any pros have any other good tips about how to use these colors, while at the same time avoiding that oppressive feeling. Thanks.
