Sorry Jillgary, but if one is prepared to pay something approaching Dulux prices then there is a very wide range of good quality paint. There are also many shops where one can have paint mixed to the exact colour of your choice (computerised matching system).
I tried the "paint matching" machine 2 years ago. It resulted in me buying 20 litres of paint that was not the right shade (too yellow) and as the decorators had already painted one wall, I had to put up with it. 2 years later I have what I orginally wanted. My Dulux painted walls look fabulous , just the colour I choose, ( by matchpots) and my Spanish painter tells me the paint was "fantastico" . Also he thinks I saved money as only needed ONE coat of the Emulsion. He says Satinwood for the doors is best paint he has ever used. Yes we live in Spain , but I don't like Spanish interior paint. But that just me. I like Spanish decorators though!

The moderators do not tolerate spam such as this so you really are wasting your time.

No we don't tolerate Spam but having looked into this case we are happy that it is not spam, just an enthusiastic user of a product making recommendations based on their experiences.

Matter closed!!

I spent 40 years in England decorating my own houses using all makes of paint then moved to Spain and bought their good quality equivalent paints, never found a difference TBH.
A very "enthusiastic" post really.

My local pant supplier in Monforte de Lemos is fantastic. He can match any colour you want. The range is unbelievable. If you are brave enough he can sell you little tubes of paint to mix with the base colour to get the shade you want.
We cannot get Dulux up here, but that is good as it saves me money.
I also cannot purchase Spam either. But that is a different subject I think?

Maybe I should have said Dulux is pants it would have been quicker.
