Paint ceilings, wood trim and cabinets white in both rooms to visually join them.
You could simply ignore the problem and paint whatever colors you like best, but they may prove visually incompatible on the walls.

Warm colours will help create balance in a north facing room.

It might still be a bit too flat feeling for you, but it’s worth checking out!
I have never had a problem picking out paint color in my life until our current home.
A north facing or northern exposure room will not get any direct warm sunlight throughout the day which means that it won’t benefit from the warmth (visual and physical) that natural sunlight offers.
They might also have reduced light due to an overhang/patio above the window or dense landscaping that blocks the sky.
But beware, just because these rooms are ‘bright’ doesn’t mean they are warm feeling.
A north facing room without much natural light can suffer not only from being more shadowed but by having to deal with the gray undertone of the natural light that is offered – giving the room a more shadowed and cold look.
However, the natural light itself can slightly wash out (gray out) some paint colours due to the gray nature of the light, while slightly enhancing cool tones such as blue, green and purple.
While cool colours can be great accents , generally speaking, too many cool tones can double the effect of the already cold exposure and add to the chill of the space.

How To Choose Paint Colors by bhg.com
Take your hue cue from a paint color used in an adjacent space.
Choose paint colors with undertones that match the golden, red, orange, or gray undertone’s in a room’s wood finishes.
Choose colors opposite each other on the wheel to shape high-impact complementary palettes.
Determine whether your primary hue reads cool or warm and whether it is active, passive, or neutral; weigh these qualities when you choose accent colors and paint sheens.
Once you’ve narrowed your paint color choices to two or three, bring them into the space via sample boards.
Paint each hue and its accent color on a 1×1-foot piece of poster board.
Paint colors will appear more intense and darker once they’ve dried.
Instead, ask store staff to blend the paint using 1/2 or 1/4 of the selected color’s formula.
Buy a sample of the paint color you like best and paint a 2×2-foot square on the wall.
Check how the color looks under natural and artificial light and at varying times of the day over the course of several days.
If a color makes you happy, you’ll love how it looks in any room.
Carry that color into the space you’re painting to create pleasing room-to-room flow.
For example, if one room has orange sherbet walls, choose an orange hue two or three shades lighter to use on the ceiling of the room you’re working on.
Select paint colors that mirror a marble’s veining, enhance stainless-steel appliances, or complement brickwork’s colorations.
Use fan decks when you’re choosing different paint colors and want them to share a tonal range.
Check the boards against the room’s furniture, fabrics, surfaces, and artworks to see which color pair or pairs complement your belongings best.
As you’re narrowing down your choices, also buy a paint sample that’s a shade or two lighter than your contenders.
If you see a color that you like, but prefer it in a lighter shade, you can’t just add white.
Leave all the furnishings in the room, as other colors, patterns, and textures will affect how the paint color appears.
Repeat the testing process until you settle on a paint color that perfectly suits your purposes.
