I say pale yellow, dh says cream.

Its the picture in the link which has a cot in with a bear, its the perfect colour for new nursery but I am rubbish at colour tones and dh is the same.

Many thanks

Cream to me. I think the yellow stickers are a false friend when trying to decide the colour IYSWIM.

Definitely creamy pale yellow. Or yellowy cream. Does it matter what it's called? confused

It was just that we'll go get some testers tomorrow and I thought there were hints of yellow but dh thought not.

Thanks everyone :-)

Not sure it matters too much what it's called, more whether you like it. I'd say on the yellow - cream continuum it's more pretty much in the middle, perhaps a little bit on the yellow side.

Bear in mind that you won't really be able to tell if you like any colour until you've put a bit on the wall and then checked in a variety of light conditions - colours change during the day depending on the amount of sunlight etc. Also what you put with it makes a difference - ovenchips is right, if you scroll over to the white cot in that picture the wall looks much less yellow than it does next to the yellow stickers.

I like yellow for walls, we had a bright yellow (almost egg yolk) bedroom for a long time, then had pale yellow for our stairwell and are now planning a more primrose type colour for our kitchen (three different houses!)

If we're being pedantic it's magnolia, don't think you can buy 'cream' paint anymore. Maybe 'antique cream' but deff not yellow imho.

I don't think its magnolia, simply because I am all to familiar with that colour and this seems warmer. But domestic Harmony has been restored and we'll head to the yellowish section tomorrow.

Or we'll create the hex code or RGB it!
