Best shade of white to paint the exterior of a house facing South

Would love any advice or photos to help narrow down paint choices for the exterior of our home.

I've always envisioned a white house (we'll have a Weathered Wood roof) with lots of boxwood bushes and hydrangeas/etc. out front.

The problem is, the front of our house faces the south, and I'm worried that it will be blindingly bright or will read "yellow" in the bright sun. Any suggestions? Should we do a "cool" white to counteract that or will it just make matters worse? Was originally thinking of doing Benjamin Moore Simply White or White Dove but now I'm having second thoughts...Any advice is greatly appreciated!
