Can paint help tie clashing tile and counter together?

last month

We are almost done with our kitchen. We are really thrilled with how it came out, except for the tile and countertop combo.
On their own, they are great. But together, they clash.
The counter is a nice cool honed Carrara, which on it's own I adore.
I fell in love with the shape of the tile, but once up, I see that the color is a warm gray rather than the white I thought it was going to be.
I thought about painting the tile, but everyone that's seen it says it's fine, and my contractor doesn't think it's a good idea.
I now have to choose a wall color, and I want to find something that will help tie everything together, if possible.
I don't know if I double down on the warm or try to offset it with a cooler white?
Here are the colors in Benjamin Moore (according to my Color Muse).
Tile: American White (which is purpley!)
Cabinets: Raccoon Fur (also purpley!)
Floors are yellow/orange pecan. (They actually look great with the cabinets).
I'm not sure how I ended up with so much purple. It was unintentional.
Room is SW facing with lots of trees.
The current living room color is Revere Pewter, which looks like a sick green color in the spring and summer from all the green.
Sorry about the long post! Any help or ideas would be most appreciated.
