Or a trade decorators place - check on google and take cash in case they discount

okay, sounds simple enough. Is a proper paint shop something like Johnstones?

If you go to a proper paint shop that decorators use you'll get a better finish than f&b, and won't need as many coats. Trufax.

It's pretty hit & miss in my opinion. Some are come out truer and easier than others.

I discovered that F&B skimming stone & dulux Egyptian cotton diamond matt are exactly the same colour.

Pretty much! They are pretty used to it. Finish poss not same (subject of much debate)

Have always just bought off the shelf Dulux etc but wandered into a Farrow and Ball shop the other day and quite liked some of their colours.

Cannot afford to get F&B but wondered about getting colours mixed.

Do I just go into a paint shop with the F&B chart and request colour?

Anything to beware of?
