Has anyone used this colour? I’m looking for a very muted pink. It has to be Crown or Dulux (insurance job) and this looks like it’s just what I’m after. I can’t get a tester anywhere and I’m worried it will be nothing like the picture and will turn out to be too girly, pastel-y, sugary.

I don't know about ballet shoes but I used to have Crown creme de la rose in my living room. It was fairly subtle for pink.

Thanks Melonportal, Creme de la Rose definitely look like a stronger pink on screen so if it’s quite subtle that should bode well for Ballet Shoes not being too pink.

My daughter has ballet shoes in her bedroom. I really like it and I generally don't like pink. It's quite muted. It certainly doesn't have that candy floss pink vibe.
I can try and get a picture in the morning, but as we all know it may look very different in one room to the next...

No I haven't, but if you are after other suggestions then Dulux Almost Oyster is a neutral with a subtle pinkish hue.

I thought Dulux Insurance Job was a shade ...... blush

(Mind you with some of the names F&B have I can be excused )

@Gilmoregoals, thank you, I’d really appreciate that if you get a chance.

Thank @Murmurur, I’ll take a look.

@70isaLimitNotaTarget But would Insurance Job look good with my F&B Dirty Dish Cloth and Dead Wombat? grin

The door area is furthest from the windows, hence it looks a bit darker, but I reckon the colour is closest to the first picture!

@Gilmoregoals thanks so much for posting those pictures. I’ve never understood why there’s no facility to attach to PMs.

The colour looks great. I feel reassured we’re not going to end up in Barbie Hell! grin

Really appreciate your help, thank you.

You 100% need Dulux Blush Pink! It’s such a lovely understated pink. We have it in our bedroom and DH even wants it in the kitchen when we move so it definitely isn’t too ott!

@DaisyandRoses - oh no! I thought I’d made up my mind! I can’t find Blush Pink shown in a room setting online but it does look rather lovely on the swatch...🤔🤔🤔
