What is a Benjamin Moore color that is close to Dove White but not as?

I have a 1915 Bungalow. It's technically craftsman but more simple, giving it a more cottage type feel on the outside.

I am going to be re doing the outside with lap siding and I plan to paint Benjamin Moore's Revolutionary Storm. It's a dusty taupe color. Which I like because earth tones were period for Bungalows built when mine was.

Here is the color;

The only example I have seen online is this one. It's darker here in places because it's inside.

I'm 98.5% set on this color. I got a sample and painted a section of the old siding and I really like the color. It's between gray and beige making a taupe but it is a bit "dusty". Other taupes I tried had olive in them where this one doesn't. There is a very similar color called Iron Gate. It has a little bit darker LRV but it is basically the same color but not as "dusty".

I am looking for a grayish white or off white for trim. White Dove is close but a little too "white" / "vibrant". I want something a little more "reserved" but still mostly white. What are some good whites that fit th bill and will go well with Revolutionary Storm?

Thanks.
