White or light neutral paint color to complement SW Alabaster?

We are moving and are having all of the interior walls repainted next week. I am 99% sure most of the walls will be SW Alabaster, which I have used in the past. However, I would like to use a second color in the bathrooms and maybe one other main room. I really want it to also be a white. lol. But it's hard enough to choose one white, let alone two that complement each other. Suggestions? It has to be something I can get locally. The painter uses Behr but we can colormatch from whatever. We have SW, BM, Lowe's, HD, PPG here in town. We are not painting the trim and ceilings. I'm not sure what brand was used for those but it's just.. white. Guessing probably a base. Here's are a couple of pictures. (Seller's furnishings.)

Bonus question- how should I handle the chair rails? We will have them in the dining room as well as in the entrance and main hallways. I'm leaning towards doing the same color top and bottom, keeping the rail in the existing trim color.
