    My missus has picked an emulsion colour for painting our downstairs walls.The colour is a cream similar to magnolia.
    My question is instead of using two coats of this paint could I use a trade magnolia for the first coat.

    Why? What's the point of messing about with 2 shades. Buy 1 colour. Probably work out cheaper anyway

    your going to need to do 2 coats any way so why bother with the hassle of switching between 2 colours. also if the mag is darker the cream might not cover in 1 so you may end up doing 3
