Decoration woes

We have an interesting patchwork effect in our dining room. It comes from the inability of paint companies to make a paint that resembles anything like the colour that the colour chart indicates. I know Dulux has that thing where you take in a piece of old blanket or a photo of a sunset and they magic up exactly the same colour but what happens when you can’t find something that is the colour you want? I’m sure the dullards at B&Q won’t be able to do anything with my description of ‘well, it’s kind of like a wine colour but a bit less in your face’. We’ll probably just have to live with the patchwork effect until we get bored and paint the whole thing magnolia. Until then I’ll shut the door…
