I am going to decorate DD's room and want a clotted cream type colour - not too pale but not too yellow. The walls in this picture are perfect. Can anyone help?
I have already bought a few tester pots which were wrong so I don't want to keep buying them as they are chuffing expensive!! If I get a few ideas here I'm happy to buy some more.
Many thanks.

Fired Earth? They are the solution to all my paint problems!!

I've never bought from them before but there is a shop nearby - thanks, I'll give them a try.

Have you tried taking in the picture to a Dulux colour match section in B&Q or Homebase, I always seem to find exactly the right colour there and they always have a range of finishes to choose from.

That looks the same colour as my kitchen, which is Soft Linen, by Crown. I would link to it but it looks totally different on their website. Buttermilk is similar, more yellow but still creamy.

I would say buttermilk or magnolia

I wish there was a Pottery Barn in the UK.

Thenks all - will get samples of those suggested tomorrow.

I LOVE Pottery Barn Kids, am annoyed that the main site ships to the UK but the kids site doesn't. It probably saves me a fourtune though I get an aunt to ship it for me but I don't like to ask too often.

Dulux Ivory Lace? I'm going to paint my DD's room with it- it is paler/more creamy and less yellow than buttermilk (in her north facing tiny room)

Couldn't get all the testers but 'Ivory Lace' is perfect! Thanks wakeupeverybody
