Stairwell Paint Color Suggestions?

Good Questions

Q: So, I'm looking for some input for my next paint job. My entry stairwell is pretty plain jane, as you can see. My first and continuing thought is to paint up to the molding that runs to the top of the first step a bluey-grey as a complement to the door and tile. I like the idea of having a dark color as it's a high traffic area, and it may hide dirt a little better.

I plan on adding a new mirror and other dressings post-paint, but for now I need a different perspective to help make the final call on the paint. Since my camera doesn't take the best photo, the wall color is eggshell white and the carpet is, too. The kitchen at the top of the stairs to the left is a light grey, and the right wall that runs up with the stairs is the same eggshell white. Thanks in advance.
