yellow creamy paint color with green sofa?

hi there!

This is the first time i've had the opportunity to paint my walls... and i need advice. I want to paint my living room (well also dining room and kitchen because of the way they flow together) and i have a pear green sofa, pine floors, and a wall of white built-in floor to ceiling bookshelves.

Would a creamy yellow work in this room if it only gets medium sunlight? I have been thinking of Restoration Hardware Butter Cream, Behr Night Glow, RH Butter, and Valspar Cozy Cottage. If so, which one?!

I have already decided to use RH Silver Sage in the master bedroom and i want an all- white bathroom (due to the small size).

Any advice would be much appreciated! Oh also, feel free to throw out any suggestions for a color to paint the study/ 2nd bedroom and what white to choose for the bookshelves.

Thanks in advance!

Creamy yellow sounds like a good choice. I'm not familiar with the colors you listed, but I'm sure any would be fine. A popular SW yellow/cream is Ivoire. There are some lovely rooms painted Ivoire in the "Favorite Yellows and Golds" Gallery:

As for a study, a suggestion I have would be SW Latte for the walls and SW Divine White for the bookshelves. I think that would be very rich looking and neutral enough that it would go with everything. Latte looks really nice with burgundy and olive green.

Silver Sage is lovely for the bedroom, but may I suggest at least an ivory/cream color for the bathroom rather than white. I have a small master bath and painted it a light silvery blue. To me, that doesn't make the room look smaller. My guest bath is SW Divine White. I combined it with light and dark turquoise towels and shower curtain.

this is not the best shot, but it shows my green sofa with yellow walls. the second one shows the color of the walls better because of better lighting in the shot.
