A Green for Living/Kitchen/Dining Room?

I really need help with a green that will be in my Living room, kitchen/Dining area. I was planning on the same colors in each room but not for sure. The living room is large with cathedral ceiling but has some dark areas. The kitchen area gets more light.
I want something that is not bright, nor too dark. I have sampled SW Softened Green (seems a little blue & little dark), SW Recycled Glass (too bright) & Lowe's Tawny Green. Of the three, Tawny Green is better but a little yellowish. I like a little sage but not too much.
I have been reading here about all the favorite greens but when I look at them on the paint chip card I'm not sure. I was considering SW Svelte Sage, Grassland, Ancient Marble, Liveable Green, Filmy Green. Can anyone tell me if any of these look bluish, too yellow or any other color recommendations? I am trying to buy my sammples before the SW Paint sale is over this weekend. (And I still have to decide on 2 bedrooms & bath :-) Any pics your can post? Thanks for any help,

Look at Ellen Kennon's Ashen Green. It's been in our kitchen/dining room for several years and we love it.
