An off-white to coordinate with teal

last month

I would really appreciate some Houzz guidance on choosing an off-white paint color. Our big decision is color family (using Lori Sawaya's sytem). Would you do something that leans towards the green-yellow side, or the red-yellow side? We're looking in the range of Swiss Coffee and Moonlight White on the greener side, Ballet White and Seapearl on the redder side.

We're in the Seattle area, so lots of gray dim days. It's a north-facing room with large windows that are shadowed by a deep patio roof. We're looking for a color that has enough distance from the white cabinets to look intentional, not a poor mismatch, and has some warmth that stands up to the gray winter light. Cabinets are a close match to BM White OC-151.

Our inspiration for wall color is this kitchen. Pictures attached: a closeup of Moonlight White and Ballet White against the tile, and a few other shots showing the larger
