I think I like skyline gray. I always go a little darker since I had to live with white walls forever!

I like Blue Silver and Skyline Gray.

Cloudy morning - i always try to pick one shade lighter than the color i like since it comes out darker than you think it will

Would love to see it in person along with the coach. You want to stay in the same color palette...blues vs browns when you are talking grays. You need to put the sofa in the photo?? But one thing is for sure..paint doesn't cost a ton..mostly labor..so do what you feel you love...you are artistic

Going off of a picture, I'd say Blue Silver or Cloudy Morning.

Turtledove. Walls are huge and darker paint can be oppressive. I like warm grays because flourescent light doesn't turn them or the people in them quite as cold.

Bottom left is my pick. :)

I agree with Buckley on Turtledove!

I am completely smitten with dark gray walls so I'm going to say DARK DARK DARK! :)

Cupboards and such in our rental are painted a grey with a lot of brown in it and I HATE it. So I would go with one with more blue in it.

I've been looking for the perfect gray for my bedroom and found it in this picture:

I emailed the designer and she responded saying that she used Benjamin Moore paint in white dove and classic gray and had them made up in Aura. I still am not really sure what "Aura" means but I looked it up and here's what Benjamin Moore says about it:
