A nice off white paint?

I have spent the day painting my dd's room "almond white" by dulux and it looks awful, I kept hoping it would look nice once it was done. It is a slightly odd shaped room and I need a really light colour, can anyone recommend a nice non-grey looking off white? Thank you

Rooms often look odd when there's nothing else in them. Almond white is a nice colour ( from memory). It will look nicer when curtains, lamp, furniture, pictures etc are all back in.

My dp said that but it looks quite grey/dirty, I wanted peachy hints, like the tin!

Hmm , it's not peachy for sure (apricot white for that) but it is quite a nice neutral. Have you seen it in daylight yet?

It was still wet when it was light so I'll see what it looks like in the morning. I almost got apricot white. Poo.

I have planned to paint our lounge in timeless, it's really nice.

It actually looks quite nice now it's all done and dry, I think it will look alright when it's got the furniture in etc. Panic over!

Dulux Timeless here as well, it's our standard off-white

I like farrow and ball pointing, but I dint get property f&b, I get Leyland colour matched.

I think pointing looks nice anywhere and everywhere, goes with everything - is not as yellow in real life as it seems on the thing

at least I hope it goes with everything as have just ordered some (but not for a whole room, just bits of it)

I like Timeless also Snowdrop or Candle Cream. Jasmine White also quite nice.
