New (off)white wood blinds do not match white trim!

I ordered Levolor wood blinds in the purest white they offer for this type of blinds called Pure White. After hanging one set, they are clearly creamier and off white compared to my white curtains and builders grade white shiny trim.
I spoke to the company I ordered from and the only way to get the comparatively cooler, "ultra white" is to exchange them for the much cheaper (and inferior IMO) PVC plastic blinds. I had my heart set on having premium wood blinds.
I'd really like to keep the wood blinds but the contrasting whites is distracting. I have no problem painting the trim to match, but then that means also painting floor trim, crown molding, and door trims throughout the rooms, painting the ultra white builder painted doors to match the new off white door trim, and possibly painting the ceiling. All because of a blinds upgrade.
What would you do? Live with the mismatch, downgrade for plastic, or repaint everything to match the blinds? FWIW the walls are BM Revere Pewter.
