Help! Low-E windows changing wall paint colors

I am choosing paint colors for our west-facing Great Room. In the living room area, there are three large glass sliders (144"w x 96"h) that open onto the patio. And in the dining area there are another three large windows. We are in the Southwest, on a hill and the sunlight streams in nearly all day long.

All of the windows are Solarban 60 so there is a definite green tinge.

We want to choose a white for the walls since the style of our home is contemporary with 13' high ceilings and large format tile. The kitchen is in Euro style with a bleached white rift cut oak and has a large island with white quartz.

We don't like grey, greige or tan paint colors. Among many other colors, I've tried SW Panda White and SW Creamy. They are neutral, slightly taupe and both take on a sickly greenish/grey tinge.

Has anyone else encountered this issue? What paint color(s) work well in the white/light color palette with Low-E glass?
