I can't decide which accent wall color looks best in my home office

I work from home and have always wanted to paint the wall behind my desk in a dark shade of green, but I'm being extremely indecisive - help! Took advantage of a recent paint sample sale to buy a bunch of different options, which are numbered in the picture.

My desk faces the center of the room so this wall is mostly a background for video calls. The lighting in the room can be weird depending on the sunlight, but I want something rich and moody. For now, I'm thinking about keeping the rest of the walls as a neutral gray.

Are any of these colors "the one"?

    I love #2 but #5 reminds me of the forest. Good luck!!

    Something about #2 spoke to me, but #5 is great, too, if you want to go more green!

    For a true "accent" wall and some real drama, I'd say #5 has the most character, warmth and ability to shine in your office. I see that folks like #2 as well, but it is too dark for your room and, I would say, doesn't have enough colorful pigment coming through.. I think it will be BORING. :)
