Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Seriously do not have a clue. For both the stairs and the walls, I do colorwashing which is a technique of layering paint colors on top of each other. It gives an effect that is more complex than just a coat or two of paint. Sorry I can't help w/ the exact answer.

Kristin painted the stairwell in the living room with a blue flower pattern.

1. An Antique Cape Cod House Explodes With ColorThis homeowner — an artist and sheep farmer in Massachusetts — didn't hold back in her home's decor. Bright chartreuse walls, handmade wallpaper and eclectic details cover every available surface in this amazing home.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Accent a Room With Colorful Trim
If cottage style is your thing, this is for you. Lime-green stairs meet a white banister and a whimsical blue wall treatment. It doesn’t matter how nasty, frigid or hostile it is outside; this stairwell will cheer you up.
Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Fun Decorating Projects for Spring
5. Spice up your stairs with paint and stencils. How lovely to have a staircase that surprises you with beauty every time you ascend and descend! Try painting wooden stairs (or just the risers) plus the walls in the stairwell. For extra adornment, use stencils (stylized flowers and geometric prints work nicely) to create a pattern on the wall or steps.
