Picking a Grey Paint Color for My Kitchen

After the recent kitchen reno, I've decided it's time to get rid of the blah cream wall color that comes with the house. I've also decided to give the stinky Behr a rest, and investigate some other brands that I've never used before such as Para. And yes, you guess right, it is the Sarah Richardson's Paint Collection that I am after.

As hubby was busy saving lives over the weekend, I picked out a deck of paint chips from Lowes trying to save our kitchen from the eternal boredom. When Anthony got home I couldn't wait to show him how much I had accomplished by narrowing down to six colors. "So, what do you think of these colors?", I asked. "Grey, grey, grey, grey, grey, and grey." He replied, looking darn serious. Okay, it'd appear that I am talking to a guy with the creative part of his brain suppressed and overpowered by his analytical hemisphere. This looks like yet another me and moi's decision.

So here are the six grey colors I picked for my kitchen wall. I want the hue to echo the Bianco Carrara marble backsplash and Kashmire White granite countertop. It can't be too blue or purple otherwise it's too spa-like; it also can't be too taupe or beige otherwise I might as well use the Revere Pewter again.

I am deciding between Powder SR1 and Vintage SR4. What do you think?
And then there is another grey paint used by Sarah Richardson in her own house -- the ICI Dulux Silver Cloud. I can't tell you how much I love this color! The only concern is that I haven't seen it in person yet, and it might just look fantastico in Sarah's house with the pictures taken by a professional photographer.
