A pale mint paint colour for nursery?

Hi everyone, I'm currently decorating the baby's nursery and am struggling to find a pale mint colour. They all seem to be garish, bright colours rather than a pale, muted mint that I'm after. The only one I've found that's even remotely suitable is b & q's mint secret, which is nice but is more white than a mint colour.
Thanks in advance

Is Celadon by Fired Earth mint?

Although the nicest colours ever (and way too expensive) are Paper and Paint Library:

Can’t remember who produced it (Dulux?) but we painted ours in Soft Apple and its lovely. Hadn’t intended it to be for a nursery - it was a spare room for guests when we decorated - but the soft green with purple decorations is perfect for our little girl.

We've got dulux willow tree in our room. www.diy.com/departments/dulux-willow-tree-matt-emulsion-paint-2-5l/126239_BQ.prd It's a bit brighter than the pot picture, "clearer" and less olivey.

Our bathroom is a very pale, muted mint green, it was Teacup by Valspar. It's lovely, fresh but also not clinical and cold.

Laura Ashley Eau de Nil is nice. They also do a pale version.

We used crown soft lìme in dds room recently (with palm springs on the chimney breast) and it looks lovely. Search my posts and I put photos up a while ago smile

Ours is Wilko Kitchen and Bathroom paint (so durable and easy to clean!) in Lime Sorbet colour, I love it. Bright and cheerful but not garish.

We have the willow tree in ds2's room and it's a lovely soft green.

We have crown Botanical Extract in the nursery. Have had lots of nice comments. We call it “mint blue” as its not TOO green.

Dulux has a lovely 'jade white'. I have it in my bedroom and it's a great calming colour.
