What was the paint color on the walls?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This vignette includes more widespread finds; the sailboat over the fireplace is a pond sailer from Seattle. The stone fireplace surround came from a quarry in Derby, Iowa, while the firebrick traveled all the way from Italy. The owner bought the steer hide rug from a street vendor outside Scottsdale, Arizona.
