Cool Painting over dark wall

I just moved into my apartment building. I want to paint my room a dark color, like a dark blue...almost navy. Since I'm renting I have to re-paint the room to its original color (off-white/cream) when i move out (a year from now). Is it difficult to paint over a dark color? I really hate the white walls, but if it's not worth the trouble I'll leave it.

Its not hard to paint over a dark color, it will just require multiple coats to cover it.

1-2 coats of primer before you put on the "off-white/cream" will do the trick, no problem.
