Do you have a favorite warm white paint to complement deep green?

I’m painting my dining room in this Farrow and Ball archived shade Minster green. The living room however is a bit challenging, it leads right off the dining room and i’d like to find a nice warm white. Since the room is south facing, its flooded with light all day and any wrong undertone in white shades are really obvious.

So far i’ve tried the following:

BM White Dove, this turned out an almost purple gray. I’m baffled and wondering if my sample was mixed wrong.

SW Greek Villa, also a bit too cool toned

BM simply white, ok undertone but too stark for this room

SW Westhighland White, nice shade but has an obvious pink undertone in the room.

Farrow and Ball Wimborne White, this shade could work and is close to the look i’m going for.

Farrow and Ball Pointing, very close but there’s just a touch too much pink in the base.

I’m not sure what else to sample. I’m thinking of trying BM capitol white, it appears somewhere between the farrow and ball shades with less pink and more yellow pigment. im guessing the other shades didnt have enough yellow pigment to go with green? Not sure where im going wrong.
