Do you mean like a beige ish French pink? Sort of muted? I used a lovely Laura Ashley one in my dressing room, racking my brains I can't remember the name of the colour, I'll have a look.

I used the Laura Ashley pale chalk pink in a bedroom, it was lovely, not quite as intense a colour as the chalk pink.

Farrow and ball calamine - looks gorgeous with rose gold or copper x

I have two walls that are painted a very pale pink, while the rest of the room is white. The one wall is the wall within the window seat and surrounding the bay window, the other wall is the opposite. It looks quite subtle, and I really like it. I would never have chosen it myself, but I've grown to like it. Plus the ceilings are to tall for me to contemplate repainting it. grin I don't know specifically what colour it is, as it was the previous resident that painted it.

My childhood bedroom was dusky pink. Love it.

Love it, and the soft glow it gives when the evening light hits it when the sun sets in the summer. Would do the whole house that colour if I could but DH likes the soft greys hmm

F and B Setting Plaster, which looked wonderful.

'calamine' and 'setting plaster' ...brilliant names

ggirl Thu 05-Jan-17 21:22:45

I have pale beech bed in there already but otherwise blank canvas

KonMarieMyCrapAway Thu 05-Jan-17 21:24:52
