Sorry, we no longer have that information available, but for something similar I might recommend Restoration Hardware or Pottery Barn.

The living room walls are #2090-30 Terra Cotta Tile, the stair wall is #2148-40 Light Khaki and the kitchen beyond is is #515 Baby Turtle, and the trim for all is #233 Cream Fleece all from Benjamin Moore paints.
You should probably work with a professional, as our clients did for this project. It will be most satisfying all around.

These are a custom design and build, inspired by the fact that this house is a lake house with lots of paddle traffic!

The red in the living room is #2090-30 Terra Cotta Tile from Benjamin Moore paints.
In response to the other question about the flooring - These are salvage hemlock boards, originally from a classic New England Inn's casino game room. I believe these were just finished with urethane which smells awful for many days after applying . I do not recommend this now, since there is a green solution for a comparable finish. The product is from Vermont Natural Coating called polywhey which holds up very well and gives a similar warm finish.

The actual color used here is Benjamin Moore's 2148-30 in Aqua Velvet. Their color naming convention has changed since this project was completed, but this number code corresponds with their Military Tan.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Wood spindles are a really common rail choice. A nice thing about wood is that it can be cut into so many shapes and forms, like a paddle. The owner of this home must be a boater, or maybe the house is located on a lake. Whatever the case, this railing isn't typical and is all the more appreciated because of that.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 18 Winners from the Architect's Toolbox
Interior railings. Sure, building codes dictate that railings have to be a certain height, have the ability to withstand a certain force and be able to prevent a small sphere from passing through. But railings are so much more. The code dictates are only the starting point. See how many architects use railings to bring a whole new dimension of style into their designs.
