A watery blue??

I want to paint the guest bathroom a sort of pale watery blue. I know what I want in my mind, but I have no idea if the colour in my mind exists in real life!!

I want a light bue, but not an icy blue or a pastel or cold blue.

The countertop is pinkand has to stay. The tiles on the walls are white with pink, purple, and greyish/blue accents. I'll post a picture later.

Any suggestions??

When I look at Palladian Blue, I can't understand why they call it blue, because to me, it looks totally green!!

Does anyone else think it's green, or am the only one?? I don't mean does it have a green undertone, I mean does it just look like it's green and not blue.

Just curious :)

I'm just going through a stack of colour chips, and came across a couple of other potential colours: Solemn Silence (Para) and Violet Echo (Pratt & Lambert).

I definitely need a light grayish blue.

I finally found the colour chip thanks to paula`s help. I`ve got to feed my hubby and me too of course but I`ll look at it and get back to you tonight.

And EcoDesign, it's in the Designer Classics Collection fan deck.

Here's a pic of the tile I have to work with:

I love that colour! I haven't used it or seen it used, but I love that it's quite a muted blue. I think it would look great with the pink, and I do find it to be a great watery blue

Maybe I have the name wrong -- I'll check it when I get home. I know for sure it starts with an A.... just can't remember all the letters that come after the A ;)

BM Athabasca seems to be close to the blue in the tile. Have you seen or used this colour?? I really want something other than pink in the toom!!

has to stay... pull your blue tone from the colour blue in your tile. Just find the light, med version of it that you`re happy with. I fear if you add another shade of blue into the mix it will be too much for the bath to handle. If you can`t change the counter and sink now, work with what you`ve got and it will be great.
