Default Opinions needed on Painting my interior...Help

So I'm torn alittle...I have a 2012 Express and painted some of the drab olive pieces silver earlier this spring and am finally getting around to doing the stupid tan dash section. Here's my dilemma though...

1. Should I just paint the tan part to match the rest of the dash and call it a day?

2. Paint the tan part to match and also do the front and rear pillars to match and also the headliner all in the dark slate gray factory color?

3. Paint the tan part alittle lighter shade of gray, say more a charcoal similar to the 13 Express's, and also do the pillars, headliner, and I was thinking some areas of the doors to give it some contrast and a 2 tone look.

I can't really decide, I think they would all look better than the tan thats in there now. Chime in and help me out!!!

Here's what it looks like now with the silver, I painted the tan pocket black, but also plan on getting the upper glove box swapped over(since these pics I also painted the instrument cluster bezel silver also):

Option 1 - a little paint goes a long way. Too much and it may have the opposite desired effect.
