Need help choosing master bath wall paint color

I’d love to get some help picking the wall color for our master bathroom remodel. Here is some information about the project along with lots of photos.

The adjoining master bedroom has SW Oyster Bay on the walls and SW Creamy for all woodwork and the ceiling. The floors are a dark wood-look porcelain tile. (The baseboards haven’t been painted in this photo.)

The bathroom is a long, rectangular floor plan with a wet room containing the shower and tub behind a glass wall at the end. We don’t get much natural light in this space -- there is one 48”x18” window above the counter on the wall to the right.

All colors and materials other than the paint color for the walls have already been determined.

wood trim, cabinetry, and ceiling: SW Creamy

vanity counters: quartzite Mont Blanc

master bath floors: Daltile Cove Creek 20x20 porcelain tile

master bath shower walls: Daltile Cove Creek 12x24 porcelain tile, 1/3 overlay

master bath accent wall: Daltile Remedy Hydro 2.5x9.5 porcelain tile

Fixtures (shower heads, faucets, trim, etc): satin nickel

So now we have 1 decision remaining -- we’re a bit stuck on the wall color. We’ve painted a small area with SW Oyster Bay but it may be a bit olive in tone? (behind the mirror in above photo) We have also tried SW Sea Salt. We like this color, but would love to hear advice or suggestions from people with more experience before painting the space. Is there another color we should be trying?

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read through my rambling details & excessive photos. Any advice is much appreciated!
