Woodwork colour with white upvc windows

Our house is Edwardian and the living room is a good size with high ceilings, an original fireplace and attractive alcove units. Unfortunately there is also a large window with patio doors in white upvc.

Ideally I wanted to paint the walls a farrow and ball cream colour with the walls a proper off white shade. But will this look odd with the plastic windows? I'm not a fan of bright white and I suppose the plastic isn't proper bright white now anyway. We can't afford to change the window so what do you think?

Off-white should be fine - the insides of our windows are standard PVC white, but the surrounding wood-work is a Dulux Ivory White and the colour difference doesn't particularly stand out - rest of the rooms downstairs are LittleGreene French Grey (mid). Using an F&B off-white might actually mean the window surrounds look brighter too, due to the contrast.

Thanks. You might be right as I suspect they aren't really bright white any more.
