Decorating & Furniture/sheen striping


Hi there.
I hope you can help me. I am getting ready to sheen stripe a 2 year old girls 12x15 bedroom.
I am going to be putting a chairail also.  My question is this..I am sheer striping it a creamy medium pink..That is the color I am using below the chair rail.What do you suggest to use above? would you paint the chair rail the same color as above it?
I was not sure if I should use a linen or creamy white above.  If you have a color number for above in benjamin moore or behr.that would be great. I am going to be using Behrs Bridal Rose color below.

Thank you so much in advance.
p.s. do you have an email so I can send pics for an awkward den..

God bless,
bella 35
p.s. I love the romantic elegant look and hope I am able to accomplish that in my home.

Please go to the link below to see color collage and example room.

Dear Bella,
  I love that color you have chosen for your daughter's room. I think it has a very child like and beautiful look to it. I would choose bleached shell from for the top portion of the room. If not this exact color I would choose something light and have it include some pink tones but neutral in color. Hope this helps. Good Luck. I would love to see what it looks like done. Please send images to
