Michael,
I imagine any paint store can mix this formula. However I am still wondering do I have to paint the wainscot and drywall the same shade? Could one or the other be a different value of the same color? If so, darker bottom/lighter top or vice versa?
I don't see why not Sandy. The purpose of the color is to neutralize the background behind your subject and to control the reflection of light. A lighter or darker shade for trim will make the room look more purposefully decorated that way, but will not detract from the benefits you get from the color.
