Can anyone recommend a nice 'grown up' pink paint colour?

I am struggling to find a pink for two North facing bedrooms, they have mid grey carpets.
Both rooms are hard to get right as they have that cold, dingy feel you often get in a North facing room.
I'm looking for something understated, more like a plaster colour but 'Setting Plaster' from Farrow and Ball is too flesh coloured unfortunately.
Has anyone got a great pink colour you could share?

Hint of pashmina crown paints is a lovely shade. I have used it in my daughters bedroom.

Laura Ashley - I think it's 'chalk pink'. Looks a bit like calomine lotion :)

Thank you, I will be off to b and q to hunt those two down.

taupe. Sorry, every time I see taupe, I see pink or purple undertone.

We have this quartz pink from the Dulux heritage colour range, and it is really nice and not cold.

Thanks, Quartz Pink looks good as i'm in a 1930's house so it looks like a good fit.
Taupe! I've not yet tried the taupes, but actually Naturally Taupe 2 & Mellow Mocha do look pink and would fit with the grey carpets. I have a lot of grey in the house which I love so taupe is easier to do than a proper pink colour for me.

Much more bold but raspberry diva by Dulux

Sorry! Just re-read and saw the word understated! Ignore my offering

Hint of Pashmina is my suggestion too. A lovely dusky pink.

The farrow and ball one called 'slipper' I think is lovely, like a ballet slipper but Matt

We have Dulux Soft Stone which is kind of a pinky beige - any pink tones near it make it look really pinky!
