Can you help me pick a paint color?

After months of sampling paint colors, we thought that we finally found the right paints. The first two (for the dining room and entryway) worked out perfectly, but the third (for the living room) is just not the right color. So far we've only painted one wall and want to cut our losses and find a new color now.

The dining room is Behr Waterscape and the entryway is Behr Gallery Taupe. The color we selected for the living room was Behr White Sapphire, a light blue, but it looks too cold and powdery at the same time. We also have beautiful moulding on the walls in the living room that is currently painted a creamy white. We are not planning to paint the moulding.

Our furniture is transitional/modern in a more traditional home. Our couch is a greyish taupe, we have a chocolate brown shag rug, glass coffee table and dark wood shelving around the room.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. We are open to all color schemes, not just a light blue. We cannot figure out what to do!

Thanks so much!
