Help choosing a F&B green for the living room

I'm trying to choose a F&B green for my new living room. I've got samples of Breakfast Room Green and Calke Green. Sometimes I lean towards one and sometimes the other, and sometimes think neither will work!

I like the richness of Calke Green but I'm worried it will overpower the room and may clash a bit with the honey tones of the floorboards.

The room has big windows and is NW facing, so it's not dark but doesn't get much direct sunlight. It's a small/medium size room with big sized ceilings.

I'm planning to do the bookshelves, mantle, windows etc in white - I've seen a lot of pictures of people doing the woodwork green too but I find that too heavy and flat.

I find it really hard to visualise things - I'm sure I could pick what I like if it was fully painted but impossible to tell from even a large sample. Does anyone have any advice or preference???
