Need help with color selection

Hi All, I'm having a difficult time selecting a color for the 4 small areas above my kitchen windows and door. They are approximately 9" high. There are 4 contenders right now. I'm including pictures of the kitchen as well as the ajoining rooms. Right now the adjoining rooms are painted BM shaker beige. The colors I'm entertaining is the Shaker Beige cut with 50% white. (this is the light beige on the wall), BM great barrington green (darker green), kennebunkport green (light green) and jackson tan (darker tan). What do you think? Thanks in advance for your help. :-)

Ilike the kitchen, nice job. The Jackson tan works the best. I wouldn't introduce the greens, although they are nice shades, not correct for this room. There are so many monochromatic items with varying degrees of weight. I see the darker island, mid counter top and light cabinets. So lets do the walls in a bridge colour, that finds common ground between them all. This is the Jackson tan. It's warm, inviting. It transitions all. The wall cabinets will sing beside it. Cheers F.

No greens or oranges. Agree with Fabia.

Beautiful kitchen!! I agree with fabia, go with the Jackson tan. That color is like a nice surprise at the ceiling line. Real warm and goes nicely with the cabinets.

Also, I guess another option would be to carry the Shaker Beige on thru in the kitchen.... So add that to the pot.

Or if there is another color you would think would work. But I do agree with you so far as I was leaning towards the Jackson tan..... Just wasn't sure if I should introduce a new color or stay with the same all the way thru.

Agree with Fabia too - and maybe bring in some rust or copper colors as accents in the room. LOVE that corner window too.....what a great kitchen!

Thank you all. Yes, we are very fortunate here in Southern California weather wise. I truly appreciate you all taking time to help me. As the evening goes on, I'm loving the Jackson tan. I also, have a red hutch that will go against the big wall. (Barn red). So I think it will look good with the colors. (I hope). Love my red hutch...
