Hi all, is there a Matt or eggshell alternative to sadolin super dec opaque finish for door sills?

im painting the windows and doors with little greene toms oil eggshell (Celestial Blue) and I’ve painted a sill in superdec (satin) as a tester but it looks naff and way too shiny against the eggshell finish of the little greene paint.

would need it in a walnut or slightly darker colour

No alternative found so I went lateral and colour tinted the walnut superdec with a smidging of black superdec then later applied an exterior grade acrylic matt varnish to mute the satin sheen of the superdec, the matt varnish isn’t 100% matt more like 75% but I can live with that and it looks better.
