New paint in the dining room....

We have been painting for days! Preparing to paint seems to take forever, but finally today I got to put the actual color we picked out on the walls. IT LOOKS GREAT!!!! The pics make it look pretty blue, but it is actually more grey. The exact color is Academy Grey. I will paint the last wall in the kitchen tomorrow and all that will be left is new lighting. I am so excited that this project is almost finished. Thoughts on the paint? Do you think we should keep the bottom half of the wall white? I need opinions.

What does it look like in the kitchen? Judging from the pics, I wouldn't think it would match the cabinets, etc., but I'm betting it brings out that "slate" color in the backsplash pretty good. Right now, I think the dining room is top heavy bc the white is so much lighter in value than the grey. I think the pic looks VERY blue, so it may look different in real life. I suggest a shade or 2 lighter or darker than the grey. Just balance it out a little more, which means more painting. And hurry up on the lighting...no more lamp chandelier. Looks professional tho. Good job. When is the bathroom demo starting?
