Need paint suggestion

My living room is Currently Brookside Moss by BM and just recently painted my bedrooms on my third floor Palliadian Blue and Pale Smoke both by BM the ceiling and trim in both room is White Dove oc-17 by BM.

Here my problem I need to repaint my foyer and kitchen but got sample of the color i though I wanted which was Limesickle by BM and not happy with the look.

Can some one suggest something that will work with Brookside Moss for my foyer and kitchen. I will paint one wall in my kitchen an accent color of Warmed Cognac by BM.

Oh I should mention the foyer is currently painted Fernwood green by BM and the kitchen is Soft fern.

I was hoping to paint my ceiing the same color in my foyer but if i dont the ceiling will be repainted White Dove .

Hi....
Sounds to me like you have a pretty great eye for color already! I love your selections. But I understand the need for change sometimes too! So how to bridge those two green colors and add the Cognac accent in the kitchen and make it work?? I think you can go one of two ways:
1 - Lessen the intensity of the color in the foyer area to work with both the Brookside Moss, Cognac, and the bluer tones in the upstairs areas. Something like BM's Silken Pine, which is on the same color strip as Soft Fern (but quite a bit lighter) would work well to even out the colors.
2 - Conversely, you could work that Cognac color into the foyer by picking a much lighter version of that shade.

For the foyer ceiling, one trick that may work is to cut the wall color by 75%...in other words, you have the wall color mixed using only 25% of the tint. Course if you are already using a fairly light wall color, you might just cut it in half...hope that makes sense?! This is a great technique for bringing personality to the ceiling without overwhelming the space with color.

Let us know what you decide to do.....would love to see some before and after shots too!!! Good luck!
