F&B paint colour for north facing study

Hi all

I am hoping others may have some good insight on this. We have moved into a standard 3 bed victorian terrace, with the master bedroom facing south and the two smaller bedrooms/studies facing north. The sellers had painted all the rooms in F&B - the master bedroom is Blue Gray, and one of the bedrooms (originally a kid's bedroom) is Green Blue. Both look lovely.

The other bedroom (which gets the least light as the window is in a corner and a large wall blocks a lot of the light) is in India Yellow.. and we can't stand it. I suppose it was meant to be a statement colour study but it just feels too dark and moody.

We've been trying to think what to repaint it, and so far have sampled:

- Cromarty - but I think this looks too similar to the Blue Gray, and v grey-tinged in a north-facing room

- Borrowed light / skylight - look nice but I think we want a warmer vibe, and skylight in particular is quite grey

I'm thinking about trying new white or farrow's cream (to give a soft creamy vibe), but would be very interested in any other ideas! Basically want something warm and light that will also flow nicely with the blue gray and green blue.

I know there are other paint brands we could consider, but as the sellers did the whole house in F&B, I'm starting there just to be consistent with the texture etc..

Thanks so much
