When you have a kitchen, dining room, and a living room with walls that extend into each with diff paint colors, how do you choose which wall should be one color or the other? Pics below show the rooms and colors planned. The blue is where I'm not sure if it should be the kitchen color or livingroom color. The wall that joins the hall, where if you zoom there is a shelving unit in the wall, will be the color of the living room. The hall will be a color all it's own (I think, still unsure if I should or not).

    Since you're using colors that are so close, use the corners to change the colors. Because of sunlight and shadow it should all blend together fine.

      I got that, just not sure which color out of the kitchen color and the livingroom color I should paint that one wall. Thanks for the info though, it does help make me feel a bit better about making sure they will blend together.

    Professionally speaking as a specialty painter, I've never liked beige/griege with gray walls.... so I would pick something based on the tone of the gray usually in the blue family, a pale yellow accent color looks nice, or stick with your gray palette and select 3 shades to accent various architectural areas. Then use your decor to introduce accents.

    It's a matter of preference. I try to paint the wall that leads into a room that color. Unless there are extreme differences in color/value (like pink into yellow), you can also use a "transitional" color that has the values of both.

    Defiantly would go with living room color for blending.
