Much will depend on the surface temperature of your log burner. Ours is a double skin burner with firebricks inside and the surface temperature is about the same as a hot radiator - so no problems with normal emulsion (on a plasterboard wall). A neighbour has a single skin burner which gets scaldingly hot on its surface - a bit dangerous for my liking.  They have put tiles on the piece of wall behind, making it into a sort of fireplace.

I think a good quality masonry paint would be fine, the cavity shouldn't get hot enough to need heat-resistant paint.

I've had good results with the Mr Bricolage own label house paints and they're cheaper than the Dulux, etc.

Don't know what colour you want but if you want heat resistant paint  why not spray it with the paint you use to paint a woodburner with.

Hi...I used ordinary paint to do just this a few years ago and it's still fine...
