Need BM white to go with BM Fairy Tale Blue 2055-50

I'm going to be painting my daughter's room Benjamin Moore Fairy Tale Blue 2055-50, which I can sort of describe as a Tiffany's box blue, maybe. I need to pick a complementary white to paint the trim (which is currently stained) and also a white for the ceiling. Any suggestions?

Give BM "Vapor" a try. It is a soft white.

Here is a link to the Ben Moore site with its suggestions for colors that go with Fairy Tale Blue.

I'm not familiar with Benjamin Moore shades, but Dunn Edwards has an amazing near-white called "Swiss Coffee" (which is not beige like it sounds) that goes with ANY COLOR. Behr has the same shade, too, so you could go to Home Depot and get a "sample can" of that color for $4.99 and see what you think. If you like it, you could paint a scrap piece of wood (or even a paper plate) and take it to your Benj. Moore dealer to see if they can match it.
