Selecting white

I painted my son's bedroom wall Benjamin Moore Brilliant Blue (which is a very bright blue with red undertones). the trim in his room is off-white. I am having a hard time selecting a white for the other 3 walls. Can someone recommend a good white that's not too harsh or too yellow? I was thinking I would use a nice bright red with blue undertones for the accent color. (he loves Mario brothers.) thank you!

Wish I knew which "off-white" your trim is - it would make it easier to choose the white. Having said that though, one of my "go-to" whites is Ben Moore's White Dove.

the trim is whatever color the builder used. it's a grayish white. sorry, I don't know the brand or name. I was looking at white dove as a possibility. I'll give it a shot and see how it looks with the trim. thank you!

I've been told BM Cloud White compliments any color, but haven't tried it YET!
