Perfect pink paint help needed!

I am looking for pink paint but can't quite find the shade I'm looking for- everything is too pink or too brown, or too dark or too light.

I've got testers for F&B Sulking Room Pink and Crown Powdered Clay but both are too dark. I've tried Dulux Blush Pink which is too pale. I want something in between these colours but can't locate the shade anywhere. I've attached some photos of the kind of colour I'm aiming for. Help!

Hi, what about Little Greene Light Peach blossom? That looks a lot like your photos. Also, Little Greene Dorchester Pink may be of interest. I was looking for pinks for a long time too and it's difficult!

I love Dulux soft montelimar and also F&B Cinder Rose.

Little Greene Hellebore is less grey than the F&B pinks, I love it.

F&B Calamine

Little Green, China Clay - have a look at the deep & mid versions.

I’ve painted my kitchen in mid (I think) and it came out a definite pink.

I've got F&B Calamine as well and it's a beautiful pink, not too sugary. It might be on the lighter side of what you are looking for though.

Another vote for Little Greene Hellebore, just painted our kitchen tiles with the gloss and it is a gorgeous colour.
