Paint Choices

I've been having thoughts for a little while that I needed to repaint. Last weekend I was trying to clean some dingy looking spots on the wall. They still look dingy. So I guess it must really be time to paint. I got some samples today, and even though I probably won't be able to do it for a little while, I painted some swatches all over my wall. So be warned if you come over. My walls look a little funny.
These photos were taken at night and I need to wait to see how they look during the day etc, but this is what I am thinking. The long wall on the west side all white again. The ceiling white. The long wall on the east, Zinc, which is the darkest grey. The samples that I had of that, were much nicer samples. Some of the others are a little blotchy. Then the south and north walls, wrapping around the kitchen, I am leaning towards the topmost green, called Lemongrass. I was thinking doing my hall in the lemongrass too.
I'm not sure about the purply blue. I might use that on one wall in my bedroom. I'm also trying to decide what to do with the bathroom. I know the ceiling needs to go back to white. But I'm not sure about whether it should be lemongrass or what.
Any thoughts?

Can't help you there, don't even know what to do with my own walls, which are all still white! Good luck on your choice!
