Trying to Find the Perfect Green Gray Paint Color

I think I am finally going to actually pull the trigger and change out the color in my living room and dining room.  I've been talking about it for years, but have struggled to figure out exactly what direction I would like to see the rooms go in.

One of the main issues has been that the living room and dining room are one big room only separated by columns, so the color really needs to be the same in both rooms.
It has made it difficult to settle in on a color.  I have been leaning toward a green/gray paint color. 
 I think I have narrowed it down to three choices, all Benjamin Moore colors:

Benjamin Moore Gray Horse
Gray Horse

I have painted samples on large sheets of poster board and keep moving them to different parts of the room.  I think I am leaning toward grey mirage, but I'm still not sure.  It's one of Candice Olson's favorite paint picks.  Candice says that grey mirage is a "can’t lose color  - a misty gray green is a great foundation for any space."  Maybe that should be enough for me.  
Anyone have any suggestions for the perfect grey/green?

I think their all lovely, but I would pick anything that Candice Olson endorses! I think your rooms will look amazing when you're done:)

Before I got to the end of your post and saw what you actually liked, I was thinking the gray mirage has to be the best choice due to the green/gray look you stated first off!

They are all pretty colors, Judy! I like the first one, but I think I might be distracted by all the pretty in the room. : )

They are all three gorgeous. I love that you are going with a green, it will be stunning. Hugs, Marty

Such pretty colors...I am leaning toward the first but of course it all depends on the lighting in your smart to paint them on poster boards and move them around to see if they work!!

I don't know how you ever narrowed it down to just three. I struggle with that. I love all of your choices. Maybe one of those will work in my office/craft room. :D
