Beige to Gray kitchen....time for a change!

I've been on a mission to update my home, room by room.... beige wall by beige wall.   I used to love the beige color but trends change and gray is the new "it" color.  
But this "it" color has been quite a task to choose.  With gray paint I've learned that the choices are appealing yet come in abundance.  I'm going crazy trying to choose a single color!  I'm sure many of you are feeling the same way.   We have so much beige throughout the house that I'm growing impatient, I've been so anxious to begin and see the finished product.  But that's not how a good design project works.  You have to plan. 

So let me regroup...I've decided that maybe a warm gray is the best course of action.  nd since fall is around the corner, what a perfect time to paint! 
Before I started, I've been doing research on various gray paints.  I learned that I need to be careful about the undertones.  Some undertones are blue, some are purple, some are brown.  So I purchased some samples and have also been looking at other kitchens comparable to mines that have gray paint.   

So below is my kitchen with the old beige and gold faux finish....was really nice in 2005...TEN YEARS AGO!   I purchased the popular Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter and Sherwin Williams Worldly Gray.
The Faux must go!

Below are some of those other kitchen's I've been comparing. There sure are some beautiful kitchens out there!   One day remodel my kitchen..but until then...let thine kitchen be thine canvas! 

This paint below reminds me of BM's Revere Pewter...which I think I actually love!   This color color scheme is similar to mines...I think this could work.
