What colour is this paint? (for North facing bedroom)

I'd like to recreate this look. We have a north facing bedroom and initially I thought I'd use jasmine white on the walls but it looks too creamy. I'd like a warm whitish grey - which paint is the closest to what's in the pic? Thanks in advance x

Farrow and Ball cornforth white could be what you're looking for. I'm having it in our bedroom as we speak (or the Leyland approximation thereof!)

My bedroom walls look exactly like the photo and it's white paint. Not brilliant white, but an excellent eco-friendly Auro emulsion that dries to a lovely soft white finish.

Not cheap but less than F&B (I'm not a fan of the toxicity of standard paint).

Thank you. I've read some negative reviews about F&B for not being child friendly... I'll check out Auro Emulsion and possibly some others (Little Greene French Grey pale?)

F&B modern emulsion is child friendly in the sense of being wipeable etc if that is what you mean....

God I am so crap, to me white is white! I have a lot to learn!

Thanks MrsNucky. Miss Duke, I was the same as you. It's a minefield, honestly!
