I saw your other post and was going to comment on it with the taupe and the red that you have and the Benjamin Moore colors that you were thinking of with the Winchester Sage and the Kingspoint Gray. Both the taupe and red that you have now and the Winchester Sage and Kingsport Gray that you were thinking of look too dark to me. I think I would go a number of shades lighter and might consider for instance, something like Benjamin Moore's most popular gray which is Revere Pewter as a neutral paint color. Given that you have not installed your kitchen, not sure what your furniture colors are, you might want to choose, if you haven't already, your cabinets, flooring, counters and backsplash first, so that you could more easily pull a color from what you'll be installing. The same is true of your furnishings and things like art, which often you can pull a color from. Think you're on the right track with the idea of something like the sage and gray having colors that are close in color given how close the rooms are together, but think you're choices are too dark. Good luck!

Do you know what your countertops, flooring and backsplash will be in the kitchen?

Two other lighter Benjamin Moore neutrals to consider would be silver sage and penthouse. Not sure where you are in the process of installation, but I think it makes it a lot easier to get everything installed first, eg: flooring, cabinets, counter, tile and then get paint samples so that you can check them against all of the other items, since it's often difficult to tell without checking it on site and next to all of the different items in the room. Looks like a lovely space to work with. Good luck!
