What color would you paint this room? (I have no idea, help!)

Live in NE Ohio - have a small 10x11 guest bedroom with 1 window (100% north facing) - no overhang, landscape blocking, etc. Currently painted builder's cheap grade flat paint in SW agreeable gray.

Looking to brighten up the room so it's not as dull - I want to make it brighter, lighter/airy. Plan on using either BM Regal select eggshell or SW (emerald vs duration). (I don't want to repaint the same color). I've read with a north facing room, I should stick to warm undertones, LRV ~50%.

Will post pictures what it looks like now - however, all furniture and bedding will NOT be in this room. I've purchased all new furniture/bedding which I will also post. Current ceiling light fixture is flush mount with 2 bulbs (ceiling is 9 feet); Just ordered a semi-flush mount with 3 bulbs to increase lumens to ~2400 which should also help with the overall lighting.

Carpet is a greige, but definitely has beige in it.
