Funcolors? Green to go with gray?

Funcolors or other color gurus--I need help!

I'm painting a sunroom/diningroom BM Chelsea gray with White Dove trim. For flow, I want to bring the gray into the adjoining kitchen on the cabinets (under counter only). The kitchen has black counters and a terra cotta tile wall behind a corner stovetop with a line of accent tiles that are off white with a dark blue mexican design. There is also a chimney w/bricks similar color to the tile, and oak floors. Dark gray grout on brick and tile.

This room gets little sunlight. I can't find a color for the upper walls that works--I thought light gray but can't find one that clicks. The BM consultant said there are green hues in Chelsea Gray but I can't see it--should I go with a sagey green? lighter gray? off white?

The living room off the kitchen is Olive Branch with Atrium white trim.

I'd SO appreciate suggestions--I'm going nuts!

Sorry for this double post--I'm new and still learning the system!

Can't get the photo right side up but you can see the colors. Chelsea gray is under copper pot but is too dark for entire kitchen....

I'm going with fun "bold" colors in my cottage. Bedroom is going to be a grey, haven't decided which grey yet, but a nearby room will have a fun bold grass green.

I agree a lighter grey will look better, but you'll probably get more responses on the home decorating forum.

I just painted these paint samples today as I'm looking for a greenish/bluish gray color for my house. I think they'd all go nicely with a more standard/straightforward gray as well.

Upper Left: Martha Stewart Mourning Dove
Upper Right: Martha Stewart Bayou
Lower Left: Glidden Dusty Miller
Lower Right: Glidden Slate Green

Good luck! Finding the perfect paint color is so tough!
