Calling all paint buffs – chalky pink paint colour, please

Hi there. Daughter (aged 12) is moving up into our loft room. It's light and sunny and south-east facing. At the mo it's a greyish off-white but she is insistent that she wants it to be pink. As there are low eaves and a sloping roof, I think the walls plus ceiling will have to be painted all the same colour and my decorator agrees. Can anyone recommend a pale, subtle chalky/dirty pink paint please? I don't like cold colours so don't fancy anything candy/pastel/bright pink. Her current room is F&B Dimity, which I think is a pretty creamy off-pink, but she stoutly disagrees. Anyone tried F&B Calamine? Dulux Satin Bow? Rosepetal? Any suggestions gratefully received.

I've been considering Little Greene's Rusling for one of my rooms. It's ever so slightly paler and pinker than Dimity, but not overtly pink!

Actually on second thought I think LG Chemise is more what you are looking for. I like Calamine too!

We just bought a very chalky pink paint - it's from the Crown La Petit Palais range, it's called Amelie.

What about Laura Ashley chalk pink or pale chalk pink?

Thanks so much for suggestions - will try the Laura Ashley and the LG suggestions...having trouble with Amelie as the Crown website denies its very existence! Now also going to trial pale grey with pink neon touches so off to hunt down grey pain threads...wish me luck!

Either Calamine, or Johnstones/Leyland trade in "Boudoir" - very similar to Calamine but much cheaper smile
